Dubai (Aletihad) - Ed Sheeran will be performing in Dubai for two successive days – January 19 and 20 – as part of his Middle East leg to a world tour from early next year.

The global superstar singer is scheduled to perform with his record-breaking Mathematics Tour in Asia, Middle East and Europe. The event is supported by Coca-Cola Arena and Dubai Calendar and brought together by All Things Live Middle East (ATL).

However, the show will be hosted at The Sevens stadium, making it the largest open-air concert to take place in Dubai and promises to be an unforgettable experience for tens of thousands of residents and visitors alike.

Sheeran will perform in ‘the round’, his signature format featuring a central stage, allowing fans to surround the musician and enjoy an unmatched immersive close-up experience. The ‘Shape of You’ singer-songwriter is returning to perform in the UAE for the first time since 2017.

Thomas Ovesen, CEO of ATL Middle East, said: “We look forward to welcoming back one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time to the Sevens Stadium to perform his record-breaking Mathematics show. Fans will be treated to Ed Sheeran performing in the round, and for the first time in Dubai since 2017, having already wowed over 3 million fans with an incredible repertoire of music in the Mathematics ‘+ - = ÷ x’ Tour.”

Sheeran’s upcoming Asia dates will be his first since 2019, the Middle East dates will be his first since 2017 and the European shows following on from his stint on the continent last year.

The news comes hot on the heels of his record-breaking USA tour, where Sheeran set multiple attendance records including Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium and New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium; the latter seeing Ed secure the largest single day concert attendance in the USA, ever.

This year alone, Sheeran released two albums, ‘- (Subtract) and Autumn Variations, both of which flew to No.1 across the globe. Released to critical acclaim in May and September respectively, Sheeran worked with The National’s Aaron Dessner on both LPs.
