The English musician has been on the road with his Divide Tour for more than two years, and has racked up an incredible number of shows throughout that period.

Since launching in Turin, Italy in March of 2017, Ed Sheeran has played 246 dates around the world, stopping off in EuropeAsiaAfrica, North and South America and Australia.

For those keeping track, that’s every continent except for Antarctica, although surely it’s only a matter of time before he brings his guitar down there as well.

After last night’s show in OdenseDenmark, the Divide Tour had grossed $737.9 million, surpassing a record that has been held by U2 since their  360° Tour of 2009-2011.

According to Billboard, he has sold 8,503,496 tickets for the tour, which is really not too shabby.

“Thanks so much for each and every one of you who have come to a show,” Ed Sheeran said in an Instagram post. “12 shows left, will never forget it.”
