Ed Sheeran is dividing and conquering.

The singer’s “Divide Tour” has broken the record for the highest-grossing tour of all time. According to figures from Billboard Boxscore, the global trek has grossed a whopping $737.9 million and sold 8,503,496 tickets.

Since launching in Turin, Italy, on March 16, 2017, Sheeran has played 246 shows across Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, and North and South America. His Aug. 2, 2019 show in Odense, Denmark pushed him over the edge, grossing $6,862,620 in one night.

The record was previously held by U2. The band’s “360° Tour” grossed $736.4 million during its 2009-2011 run. They are followed by The Rolling Stones’ “A Bigger Bang Tour” ($558 million), Guns N’ Roses’ “Not in This Lifetime… Tour” ($529.6 million), Coldplay’s “A Head Full of Dreams Tour” ($523.3 million), AC/DC’s “Black Ice World Tour” ($441 million), and Madonna’s “Sticky & Sweet Tour” ($408 million).

Sheeran’s record-breaking trek, which comes in support of his 2017 album Divide, has nine dates left before wrapping on Aug. 26 in Ipswich, England, with a projected gross of $770-775 million.

Last month, he released his No.6 Collaborations Project. The star-studded project, which features collaborations with Cardi B, Eminem, and Travis Scott, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
