On October 3rd, 2022, singer and songwriter, Ed Sheeran, released a minute long video skit announcing his 2023 North American Tour.

As she writes each symbol on the chalkboard a song from Sheeran’s corresponding album plays.

For context, the star released an album called “+” in 2011, “x” in 2014, “÷” in 2017, and “=” in 2021. Fans expect the release of an additional album, “-,” sometime this year. The video closes with the words “Ed Sheeran ‘+-=÷x’ Live Across North America” written across a black screen.

“+-=÷x,” nicknamed “Mathematics Tour,” will be Sheeran’s first tour since the “÷” tour, which began March 16th, 2017 and ran untill August 26th, 2019.

The tour, in North America alone, will run from May 6th, 2023 to September 23rd, 2023.

In total, Sheeran will perform 76 shows across the world as a part of his Mathematics tour. Sheeran has already begun his tour in Dublin, Ireland. It officially started on April 23rd, 2022.

“I’m super excited to bring this tour, it’s an insane looking tour,” says Sheeran, “We basically planned it from the end of the ‘÷’ tour.” Sheeran tells fans to expect “all the bells and whistles” from his upcoming tour.

The setlist has not yet been confirmed and will likely vary at each location. However, the show will feature songs from Sheeran’s albums, “+,” ”x,” “÷,” and “=,” as well as songs from his expected new album, “-.” It will be a mix of familiar fan favorites and some of the star’s more recent releases.
