ED Sheeran earned more than £181,000 a day last year through his lucrative world tour and extensive writing credits.
Newly published accounts reveal the Shape Of You hitmaker, 27, has made £38.8million in the past year from touring alone.
According to the Daily Mail the singer’s company Nathan Cable Touring – which handles his income from ‘live performance of music’ made £106,000 a day.
Meanwhile his separate company Ed Sheeran Ltd which channels income from ‘writing, recording and production of music’ showed earnings of an additional £75,000 a day.
Earlier this month it was revealed Ed smashed the all time record for the most cash made in a single year by a musician — hauling in a staggering £342million in the last 12 months.
He has sold 4.9 million tickets worldwide bringing in an astonishing £6.5million per week — with his pal Taylor Swift, 29, in second place after her tour Reputation earned her £244million in 2018.
US industry data compiled by Pollstar revealed the British singer has smashed his previous tour earnings — and is now on course for the most lucrative tour of all time.
His previous tour, Multiply, grossed £119m back in 2014/2015, but Sheeran has already more than doubled the amount with 50 shows still left to play.
It has only been seven years since the 27-year-old’s debut hit ‘A Team’ was released.
Sheeran has had a successful year away from touring as well.
He has won a Brit award, two Grammy awards, four iHeartRadio awards and had a guest star role on The Simpsons.

On top of this he has been rumoured to have married his long-term girlfriend Cherry Seaborn.
2019 is looking to bring the star more money and success with the end of the Divide tour and a feature in a Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis film.
All of this success means Sheeran could buy his very own castle on a hill.
