DENVER (KDVR) — Ed Sheeran’s “+-=÷x Tour,” also known as “The Mathematics Tour,” is coming to Denver this weekend.

“The Shape of You” singer takes over Empower Field at Mile High Stadium Saturday, Aug. 19. The stadium show follows a separate sold-out performance set for Friday at the Paramount Theatre in Denver.

Fans can still purchase tickets to the stadium show from Ticketmaster, with prices starting at $49.

The Grammy-winning singer released his album “Subtract” in May. His tour setlist is available online so fans can prepare for the show.


Gates open at 4:30 p.m. for fans to find their seats and buy food, drinks and merchandise.

The show starts at 6 p.m. Khalid and Cat Burns will open the show before Sheeran takes the stage.

The venue cautions fans about heavy traffic between 4-8 p.m. around the stadium and suggests getting there early.

Merch trailer

Fans can get their hands on tour merchandise at a trailer on the Counties Gateway Plaza on Saturday starting at 2 p.m.

Once inside the venue, there will be six places to buy tour items.

Parking and transportation

Parking lots open at 2 p.m. and a pass costs $40 plus fees. Space is already limited, so plan to purchase parking ahead of time.

The stadium’s rideshare dropoff and pickup location is on Howard Place south of parking lot M. Scooter riders should park at the Broncos Bridge or the Ring Walk.
