Ed Sheeran returned to Toronto’s Air Canada Centre for two sold out shows over the weekend as part of his North American tour in support of his 2017 album, Divide. Prior to the show, Sheeran was presented with multiple award plaques for the album and its singles by Warner Music Canada.
The UK singer-songwriter was first presented with a custom Double Platinum award plaque for Divide, which also showcases his multiple certified tracks from the album including “Castle On The Hill (Triple Platinum),” “Galway Girl (Platinum),” “Perfect (Gold),” and “Happier (Gold).”
