The tour will see Ed play shows across Ireland, the UK, Central Europe and Scandinavia, and will see him return to London’s Wembley Stadium for three nights in June/July.

Ed will kickstart his first tour since 2019 in Pairc ui Chaoimh in Cork on Thursday April 28th 2022.

He will then head to Thomond Park in Limerick on Thursday May 5th and Boucher Road Playing Fields in Belfast on Thursday May 12th.

Ed’s upcoming ‘+ - = ÷ x Tour’ will see Ed return to stadiums for the first time since his record-breaking ‘Divide Tour’: taking place from 2017-2019, it officially became the most-attended and highest-grossing tour, ever, by the time of its completion. On next year’s dates, fans will get to see Ed perform an array of tracks off his upcoming album, ‘=’, live for the first time, and they will also experience a new production set-up with Ed’s staging in the round, surrounded by the crowd in each stadium.

General sale for all territories commences on Saturday 25th September. Tickets for Cork, Limerick and Belfast will go on sale at 8am.

England, Wales and Scotland shows will be on sale at 9am, Austria, Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium, Poland and France at 10am and Denmark, Sweden and Finland at 11am.

Tickets will be available to purchase at

Fans are urged to use only official ticket vendors. For Cork, Limerick and Belfast this will be Ticketmaster. Fans will need to have a Ticketmaster account.

Once again, Ed and his team have a strict stance against anyone using unofficial secondary ticketing sites in order to try and stop fans being exploited when trying to buy tickets for his shows. The shows on this tour will use specially developed mobile digital ticketing technology which have safeguards in place to ensure genuine fans are buying genuine tickets, and to stop unofficial secondary ticketing sites, and unofficial ticket sellers, from being able to resell tickets at inflated prices and rip off fans. In order to make buying legitimate tickets easier on the day, fans are encouraged to sign up for an account with an official ticket vendor in advance of the on sale. Fans who become unable to go to the shows will be able to sell their tickets to other fans at the price they paid + a booking fee through the official fan to fan face value resale platform at the place they purchased the tickets.
