REYKJAVIK (CelebrityAccess) — Ed Sheeran continues his record-breaking run with two of Iceland’s largest-ever concerts.
Sheeran performed two shows at Laugardalsvöllur arena in Reykjavík on Saturday and Sunday, with more than 60,000 tickets sold across both events.
Sena Live, one of the promoters for the show, told the Iceland Monitor that the British singer-songwriter’s concerts set national records for ticket sales for the two shows.
“These are by far the biggest concerts ever held in Iceland. By far. They fly in all their equipment. They move sound, stage, and lights from abroad,” Ísleifur B. Þórhallsson, CEO of Sena Live told the Iceland Monitor. “This is the large stage he uses for major concerts abroad. They’re just bringing it to Iceland, which is amazing.”
All told, Sheeran brought in Fifty-five containers of equipment for the two concerts, including lights, a full sound system, and a stage.
“We thought it was a lot when Justin Timberlake brought five containers and Justin Bieber nine,” Ísleifur added.
Earlier this month, Sheeran’s ‘Divide Tour’ became the top-grossing tour in history, according to Billboard Box Score, with revenues of more than $737.9 million across 250 shows.
Following his performances in Iceland, Sheeran heads back to the UK, where he’s lined up to perform a handful of additional dates before closing the two-year tour out at Suffolk’s Chantry Park on August 26th.
