If you are like me, you were really excited when multiple Grammy Award-winning global superstar Ed Sheeran announced the details for his North American arena tour included a return to Orlando’s Amway Center on Thursday, August 31.
The tour celebrates Sheeran’s landmark third studio album, “÷.” The album – pronounced “divide” – includes the universal hit singles, “Shape of You” and “Castle On The Hill,” both of which made incredible chart entries after their simultaneous January release. “Shape of You” debuted at number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 – Sheeran’s first time atop the overall chart and has remained there for six weeks total. Meanwhile, “Castle On The Hill” entered the Hot 100 at number six, establishing Sheeran as the first artist to ever have two singles make simultaneous top 10 debuts in the chart’s 58-year history. “Shape of You” was quickly certified double-platinum by the RIAA, while “Castle on the Hill” earned gold — the first two songs released in 2017 to achieve RIAA certifications this year.
