Ed Sheeran’s playlist

Ed Sheeran has an outing planned for North America and it is going to be a big one.

Scheduled to kick off on June 29 and run into October, the 48-date arena tour will chase the massive success of the British superstar’s third album ÷ (pronounced divided).

Since its release on March 3, ÷ rocketed to No.1 on iTunes charts in 102 countries and has so far sold 4 million copies worldwide.

The album’s double lead singles “Shape of You” and “Castle on the Hill” paved the way to the top after making phenomenal chart entries following their simultaneous release in January.

“Shape of You” has soared to No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the Billboard Canadian Hot 100, and has achieved 5x platinum status in Canada, while  “Castle on the Hill” is certified platinum with over 80,000 copies sold in Canada alone.

Speaking of Canada, Ed’s tour of the continent will include a number of Canadian stops. He couldn’t sweep through the US and not pay a visit to his adoring fans north of the border.

“Canada is a very special country for me,” Ed says. “Canada was one of the first places outside of the UK to accept me.”

Ed recalls performing in Montreal as the supporting act for Snow Patrol back in 2012 and the welcome he received blew his mind.

“I remember walking out on stage and the reception I got, I never got that for being an opener, let alone a headliner.”

Now fans in Toronto, Quebec City, Montreal, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton and Vancouver will all have the chance to roar for Ed this summer.

To highlight Ed’s Canadian tour dates, here is a playlist of tracks by the superstar’s two favorite Canucks: Drake and Avril Lavigne.
