Ed Sheeran has broken a 32 year old record for ticket sales in Australia surpassing Dire Straits 950,000 ticket sale record of 1986 with over 1 million sales for his current Australian tour.

Michael Gudinski, head of Frontier Touring, said of the incredible achievement; “Frontier has toured some of the biggest names in music, including Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Paul McCartney, and The Rolling Stones, but I’ve never seen a tour like Ed’s. To sell one million tickets is simply phenomenal.

“Frontier has toured Ed from the beginning – from small theatres through to multiple stadiums and his outstanding work ethic, talent, passion and dedication to his fans has produced this incredible result – he is truly gifted. Since I’ve gotten to know Ed I’ve discovered his fondness for breaking records and I can absolutely say he’s smashed this one out of the park and I’m very proud Frontier Touring has been a big part of it.”

Sheeran’s Australian records include:

• Highest ticket sales for a single concert tour in Australia
• Highest ticket sales for a single concert tour in New Zealand
• Biggest stadium tour of Australia and New Zealand
• Venue record for most number of shows on one tour
Optus Stadium (Perth), Etihad Stadium (Melbourne), Suncorp Stadium (Brisbane), Forsyth Barr Stadium (Dunedin)
• Venue record for highest cumulative attendance on one tour
Optus Stadium, ANZ Stadium (Sydney), Etihad Stadium, Mt Smart Stadium (Auckland), Suncorp Stadium, Forsyth Barr Stadium
Notably, Dunedin cumulative ticket sales are close to equal of the city’s population!
• Venue record for highest attendance for a single show
Optus Stadium, Suncorp Stadium, Mt Smart Stadium, Forsyth Barr Stadium
