Multiple GRAMMY Award-winning, global superstar Ed Sheeran will perform at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts as part of the North American leg of his “+ – = ÷ x Tour” (pronounced “The Mathematics Tour”).

The tour will visit stadiums across the continent for the first time since his history-making “Divide Tour” in 2018, which officially became the most-attended and highest-grossing tour of all time by its completion. 

Dates begin on May 6th at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX, before wrapping up on September 23rd at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA (see attached itinerary).  

Main support on a majority of the dates comes from multi-platinum artist Khalid (May 6th-September 2nd) with rapper/singer-songwriter Russ rounding out the tour (September 9th-23rd); Dylan, Cat Burns, Maisie Peters, and Rosa Linn alternate as first of three. 

Khalid and Rosa Linn will join Sheeran at Gillette Stadium.

Sheeran recently wrapped the UK/European leg of the “+ – = ÷ x Tour,” performing in front of over 3 million people in 6 months and highlighted by a five-night stand at London’s Wembley Stadium.
