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.
