Ed Sheeran sold over 300,000 tickets to his Irish concerts yesterday — the highest number of tickets ever sold by an artist in Ireland in one day.

All but one of the singer-songwriter’s gigs sold out in under eight hours. As of this writing, there were still a limited number of tickets available to his concert in Dublin, Phoenix Park on May 13, 2018.
