Apart from Singapore, the 'Thinking Out Loud' singer will be also be performing in other Asian cities like Dubai and Kuala Lumpur.
The tickets for the Singapore concert will be priced from S$108 to S$248 and fans can book their slot at www.sportshubtix.com. ÷ (divide) is Sheeran's third album, and it debuted at number one in the UK, the US and other major markets with the first two singles—'Shape of You' and 'Castle on the Hill'—breaking records in a number of countries, including the UK, Australia and Germany. Sheeran also became the first artist to have two songs on the top ten list of the US charts. He was also named as the most influential people in the UK in Debrett's 2017 list.
The album sold 232,000 physical and digital copies in the UK in its first day of release. And eventually, the numbers reached 672,000 during its first week, making it the nation's fastest-selling album by a male artist and the third highest opening behind Adele's '25' and Oasis' 'Be Here Now.'
Meanwhile, in an interview with Kirsty Young on Desert Island Discs, the 26-year singer revealed that he uses song writing as therapy for when he feels low. He said: "I think [song writing] is a form of therapy, to be honest. Any time I've ever got down or ever felt low the one thing that picks me up from that is writing a song about it because at least you've got a positive experience out."
