And there’s a warning about purchasing from ticket resellers…

Global megastar and British crooner Ed Sheeran is making his way to Dubai to serenade us all for two exclusive nights as part of his ‘+ – = ÷ x’ Mathematics Tour. All set to perform at The Sevens Stadium on January 19 and 20, the musician will take the stage, with tour guest Calum Scott, to deliver some of his biggest, record-breaking hits, as well as tracks from his new albums, Autumn Variations and ‘-‘(Deluxe), released in 2023.

This stop is part of the Asia and Middle East leg of his smash-hit tour, and will be the first time the singer will be performing in the city since his first concert back in 2017. He will perform in ‘the round’, his signature format featuring a 360-degree central stage, giving the fans a chance to surround the musician and witness his set in an immersive, close-up experience.

Brought to the Emirate by All Things Live Middle East and supported by Dubai Calendar and Coca-Cola Arena, the show at The Sevens Stadium will be the largest open air concert to ever taken place in Dubai.

Fans can expect to hear some of the biggest tracks from his six studio albums, including smash-hit singles from the archives like A Team, Thinking Out Loud, Castle On The Hill, Shape of You, Perfect and Photograph.

Tickets? Tickets.

Tickets are still available to purchase on and are priced from Dhs595 per ticket. The different categories include the standing tickets on the pitch, with the best view of the 360-degree stage, the East and West unreserved seating in the grandstands and the cushioned reserved seating.

The official venders and organisers have been ver clear about their stance on “unethical secondary ticketing and ticket resale” and have taken measures to prevent these activities, so that the real fans can get to see Ed live. These measures (taken from the Platinumlist website) include the requirement of a ‘Lead Purchaser”.

“A Lead Purchaser is the name of the cardholder or the name input during the booking process.[MB1]  You can find the name of the Lead Purchaser in the confirmation email and on your ticket.

It is important that the Lead Purchaser arrives with their group and their matching, valid photo ID to enter the event.”

And “To gain access to the concert you are required to bring your ticket with a clear and undamaged barcode visible. You may be required to produce your email booking confirmation and a valid form of photo ID that matches the name on the confirmation. Accepted forms of photo ID are – A current original driver’s licence (including provisional licence), a current or recently expired original passport (provided the picture is a good resemblance of the holder) or the original Emirates ID.”

Even if you’re buying tickets as a gift, the website confirms: “The matching photo ID with the surname of the Lead Purchaser will be an entry requirement, the other tickets bought by that person can be used for other people as long as they ALL arrive with the Lead Purchaser.  If you want to buy as gifts then you’ll also have to attend to get your recipients into the show.”
