It was only really a matter of time before Ed Sheeran was going to hit the road again. Coming off the release of his stellar new album ÷ last week, when better than now? Today, the British pop star announced a staggering, 59-date run through some of North America’s finest basketball and hockey arenas. The run is set to kick off at the end of June in Kansas City and will take him all across both the U.S. and Canada before closing in October in Nashville.

As ambitious as this new tour is, Sheeran already has bigger designs in his mind going forward. “I want to do stadiums everywhere,” Sheeran told Rolling Stone. “Like George Strait’s level – he tours every four years, does a couple of stadiums and then fucks off again.”
