Ed Sheeran to bring ‘Divide’ tour to Wells Fargo Center this summer

Pop singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has announced a massive North American tour in support of his latest album, ÷ ("divide"), and it will bring him back to Philadelphia this summer.

Sheeran, who announced the upcoming tour Wednesday, will perform at the Wells Fargo Center on July 11. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, March 17, via the Wells Fargo Center website and box office, or by phone at 800-298-4200.

The “Thinking Out Loud” singer will kick off the upcoming tour June 29 in Kansas City before winding his way throughout the U.S. to wrap things up on Oct. 6 in Nashville, Tenn. Sheeran last played in Philadelphia at The Mann Center in May 2015 as part of his “Multiply” tour.

(He also did a pretty killer rendition of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme earlier this year.)

Sheeran’s ÷, released in January, has spawned hit singles including "Shape of You” and “Castle on the Hill.” Last week, Billboard reported that the album was on target to become the year’s biggest debut on the Billboard 200 yet. The next Billboard 200 list will be released March 25.

“I want to do stadiums everywhere,” Sheeran recently told Rolling Stone. “Like George Strait’s level — he tours every four years, does a couple of stadiums and then [expletive] off again.”
