The tour supports Sheeran’s blockbuster 3rd album “÷” (pronounced “divide”), which was crowned the biggest album of 2017 by Nielsen Music, with sales equivalents exceeding 2.764 million units, and recently won “Best Pop Vocal Album” at the 60th GRAMMY Awards. That same night, Sheeran’s 8x-platinum smash “Shape Of You” also took home the trophy for “Best Pop Solo Performance” to go along with the pair of GRAMMY awards he previously won – “Best Pop Solo Performance” and the prestigious “Song of the Year” – for his RIAA Diamond-certified hit “Thinking Out Loud” in 2016.
Sheeran’s latest single “Perfect” – already 3x-Platinum certified – is currently #1 on the Hot AC radio chart for the 4th week, and, after topping the Top 40 radio chart for 2 weeks, remains at #2. “Perfect” also stands at #2 on Billboard’s Hot 100, after holding the top spot for 6 consecutive weeks, The song earned Sheeran his second chart-topper on the Hot 100 – joining “Shape Of You” which was #1 for a remarkable 12 weeks – and made “÷” the only album of 2017 to have two of its singles top the chart. This week, “÷”stands tall at #5 on the Billboard 200, nearly a year after it’s release, further illustrating Sheeran’s continuing domination of the charts.
In his native U.K., Sheeran is nominated in four categories, including Album of the Year, at the 2018 BRIT Awards, where he is set to perform on February 21st. He is also nominated for five awards and was recently announced as one of the performers at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards, taking place on March 11th.
