Ed Sheeran smashes sales records for Australian tour

He's the English superstar who's performing some of his biggest hits Down Under this month.

And as he prepared to kicked off on the Australian leg of his Divide tour,  Ed Sheeran was snapped at a media call at Perth's Optus Stadium on Thursday.

The 27-year-old looked every bit the rockstar as he cut a casual figure in a black T-shirt and khaki pants as it was announced he had smashed ticket sales records.

With sales of more than one million tickets, Ed had broken the previous record of 950,000 tickets held by Dire Straits since 1986.

Ed was all smiles as the media event and looked ruggedly handsome sporting full facial hair. 

The red-haired hitmaker's tattooed sleeves were on full display in his casual ensemble and he accessorised with a wrist watch and navy cap.
