Ed Sheeran, a household name in the music industry, is bringing his North American ‘Mathematics Tour’ to Seattle next summer.

According to the pop star's website, he will be playing at Lumen Field on Saturday, Aug. 26, 2023 alongside Khalid and Maisie Peters. 

The "+–=÷x Tour", pronounced "the mathematics tour", is likely to be a concert that includes the best songs from his career. Each math symbol refers to the names of each of his studio-recorded albums. Fans will recognize the "÷" symbol as the album that broke the musician into the international spotlight with his 2017 hit "Shape of You". 

The key detail that is putting Ed Sheeran fans on the edge of their seats is the "-" symbol. Following his 2011 debut studio album "+", Sheeran released "x" in 2014, "÷" in 2017, and most recently "=" in 2021. 

According to an article from Radio X, Sheeran's "-" album is expected to be released sometime in 2022. Also, once it is released, Sheeran is going to put an end to the mathematics theme.
