The tour announcement comes on the heels of the acclaimed singer/songwriter’s triumphant night at the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards, where Sheeran was nominated for three awards, including the prestigious “Album of the Year” for his RIAA platinum-certified album “x” (pronounced multiply).
Sheeran’s other nominations were in the categories for “Best Pop Vocal Album” and “Best Song Written For Visual Media” for his song “I See Fire” from the feature film The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
Already proving to be one of the biggest songs of the year, Sheeran’s latest single “Thinking Out Loud” has skyrocketed to #1 on the Hot AC radio chart and #2 at Top 40. Likewise, “Thinking Out Loud” stands tall at #2 on Billboard Hot 100, earning Sheeran the highest charting U.S. single of his career so far.
“Thinking Out Loud” is the third single from “x” following back-to-back RIAA-certified Platinum singles “Sing” and “Don’t.” Already a global smash, “Thinking Out Loud” has gone to #1 in nine countries around the world.
