Ed Sheeran confirms special guests for summer stadium shows: Maisie Peters (UK) + Budjerah (AU)26 Oct 2022
With hundreds of thousand tickets already sold, Ed Sheeran’s upcoming stadium + - = ÷ x Tour (pronounced ‘The Mathematics Tour’) is shaping up to be one of the biggest live music events in Australian and New Zealand history!
Frontier Touring is today excited to announce that Sheeran will be joined by two incredible artists in February/March 2023 – one of the UK’s hottest rising talents, Maisie Peters, will perform at all shows, while joining the unforgettable run in AU only is ARIA Breakthrough Artist winner Budjerah.
One of the UK’s hottest rising talents, prodigious 21-year-old Maisie Peters has earned 845 million streams and counting to date worldwide, 37 million of those in Australia alone (her fifth largest streaming territory). In October 2022, she dropped single ‘Not Another Rockstar’ – her latest offering in a string of arresting hits. Signed to Sheeran’s Gingerbread Records label, Peters’ innate gift for storytelling has seen her earn millions of fans worldwide, including famous names such as Taylor Swift, Phoebe Bridgers and Sam Smith. The West Sussex-born singer is currently working on the follow-up to her acclaimed UK #2 debut album, You Signed Up For This. Making her first ever visit to Australia and New Zealand for the tour – and performing seven intimate headline dates while down under – Peters recently completed 54 dates on Sheeran’s UK / EU run, with five more shows confirmed for North America in 2023.
Back in 2020, Australia was introduced to the spectacular voice of Budjerah: a new, homegrown kind of R&B star, who shot onto the scene with his debut single ‘Missing You’. Possessing song writing ingenuity and old-soul wisdom, the 20-year-old Coodjinburra singer is charging forward in 2022, armed with a new set of songs that show off his range and heart-wrenching voice. With a debut EP under his belt as well as an ARIA Breakthrough Artist award from 5x nominations (including Best Solo Artist, Best Australian Live Act and Best R&B/Soul Release), Budjerah has honed his skills performing alongside Vance Joy in the UK, Australia and North America, and sharing the stage with Thelma Plum, The Avalanches, and Lime Cordiale, not to mention a collaboration with PNAU. In May 2022, the musical visionary commenced his global assault, most notably featuring on a remix of Sheeran’s hit single ‘2Step’. His second EP Conversations continued the rise, while he just released a Harvey Sutherland remix of anthemic hit ‘Ready For The Sky’.
“I can’t wait for this tour, it’s gonna be crazy! I’m super grateful for this opportunity, I never thought that I’d get to be a part of something like this. Thanks Ed Sheeran!” – Budjerah
