Taylor Swift's "Eras" tour set a new record for attendance at Lumen Field, but Ed Sheeran's "Mathematics" tour just broke it.
According to Lumen Field's X account, 77,286 people saw Sheeran perform during his one night trip in Seattle
Even if the actual attendance was half of what Sheeran's crew had stated, it would have been enough to break Swift's record.
Swift performed on the 22nd and 23rd of July, a little over a month ago. Her team reported that 72,141 people showed up to the event on Saturday, surpassing U2's previous record
More over 70,000 people showed up to see U2's "360" tour at Lumen Field in 2011. Swift then shattered that record a month before Sheeran did.
She'll get back out there in November for a few shows in Argentina and Brazil. Her "Eras" tour will take her all over the world in 2024, including stops in Europe, Japan, and other countries.
Ed Sheeran is now on the road for his "Mathematics" tour, named after the mathematical symbols that appear on each of his five studio albums. The SoFi Stadium concert in Inglewood on September 23 will be the tour's final stop after starting back in April
Sheeran's upcoming album, Autumn Variations, is scheduled for release on September 29. After the release of Subtract on May 5, this will be Sheeran's second album of the year.
