Ed Sheeran’s just broken the record for most ticket sales for a single concert tour in Australia, clicking over 1,000,000 today!
It’s really no surprise, he was just named by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) as the world’s best-selling recording artist of 2017.
The record was previously held by Dire Straits, when they sold over 950,000 tickets over 32 years ago in their 1986 tour.
