Ed Shereen is 2018's "king of the road," according to a new report from box office research group Pollstar. His recent "Divide" tour traveled four continents and sold more than 4.8 million tickets -- bringing in a record breaking $432 million gross.
Sheeran's numbers are well ahead of Taylor Swift's "Reputation" tour ($345.1 million) and Jay-Z and Beyonce's "On the Run II" tour ($254.1 million).
U2's "360" tour grossed $736.4 million, but those numbers are over the course of two years.
Pollstar also noted that the concert industry as a whole saw a record-setting amount of $10.4 billion.
