Let's put in to perspective how many people are going to see Ed Sheeran

It’s looking like 400,000 people will be seeing him

AS WE ALL know, Ed Sheeran did the unthinkable, and managed to sell over 300,000 tickets for his Irish stadium tour.

And honestly, fair play to him. No begrudgery here.

But c’mere, that’s an awful amount of tickets, when you think about it.

With two new dates at Parc Uí Chaoimh in Cork and Phoenix Park in Dublin just announced, that number is expected to increase to just over 400,000.

400,000 people …

That’s roughly the population of Canberra

Yes we can indeed.

It’s how many people it took to get Apollo 11 on the moon

According to this book anyway.

Could Ed set his sights on the moon next?

Can’t imagine people queuing up for that gig.

Grim enough.

No pushing to get to the barrier. You’ve been warned.

If you multiplied (see what I did there?) his Instagram followers by 34 and a quarter, you’d get his tour attendees

His Instagram followers are slacking, clearly.

They made this legit – and utterly bizarre – video to celebrate.

It’s how many minutes there are until the tour starts on May 4th

Well, give or take a few days … And not that anyone’s counting, or anything.
