A third Dunedin show has been added for Easter Sunday, making it Sheeran's sixth and final show and if it sells out like the others have, will see him play for up to 250,000 fans.


Compare that to Adele, who recently broke New Zealand records with her three massive Mt Smart Stadium shows, performing to 130,000 fans.

With additional dates in Dunedin and Australia, Sheeran has smashed the Australasian record for the largest number of stadium shows on one tor, taking his total to 18 dates.

Sheeran said in a statement: "I've always loved coming to Australia and New Zealand. So many amazing musicians have toured there and I am humbled to have broken these records."

Michael Gudinski, head of Frontier Touring says: "I'm Living the dream - it's the most incredible thing I've ever seen in my life it's the biggest tour in Australia and New Zealand.

"It's just absolutely mind boggling to me to see how he's captured such a huge audience. It never ceases to amaze me".

Gudinski says Sheeran isn't leaving anything out when he brings his show downunder, bringing his own staging, lighting, sound and everything.

"Not one piece of show is compromised...he's an artist that cares about his fans, I've noticed that right from when I first met him."

Sheeran will perform at Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium on March 24, 25 and 26, and at Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium on March 29 and 31, and April 1 (Easter Sunday).

Tickets to the new Dunedin show go on sale Thursday, June 1 at 1pm. See FrontierTouring.com for details.
