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

Notably, Dunedin cumulative ticket sales are close to equal of the city’s population!
