Ed Sheeran broke many records that day. The first day the album was released, it sold more copies than any other album in an entire week in 2016; the album sold about 232,000 digital and physical copies in the UK. The album also reached a total of 56.73 million streams worldwide on Spotify. The previous record of 29 million streams for “Starboy” by The Weeknd was broken.

The album sales continued to increase. In just three days, over 432,000 copies were sold. This was the biggest opening for an album since Adele released 25.

A couple of days later after the album release, Ed Sheeran announced the tour dates for the North American tour. As of now there will only be 48 shows (the Dallas show being on August 18, 2017 at the American Airlines Center).
