Ed Sheeran is inarguably one of today’s most successful entertainers. Per Forbes’ 2020 assessment of celebrities’ net worths, his “÷” tour raked in a whopping $776 million alone. (It was the highest-grossing tour of all time—that is, until Taylor Swift broke that record with The Eras tour.) He’s also the winner of four Grammys, seven Brit Awards and eight Billboard Music Awards. Plus, he’s nominated for a 2024 Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album. 

Ed Sheeran’s net worth (clocking in at $200 million) might not make him a billionaire just yet, but it’s safe to say that with all his upcoming gigs, he’s well on his way. Keep scrolling for details.

1. What Is Ed Sheeran’s Net Worth? 

Per Celebrity Net Worth, Ed Sheeran’s net worth is estimated to be $200 million. The site speculates that when on tour, the Yorkshire, England, native can rake in anywhere from $70 million to $100 million. Though touring makes up a sizable chunk of his earnings, Sheeran also makes money via collaborations, guest appearances and songwriting, most famously for the likes of Rihanna, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd and now-defunct One Direction.

When asked about “Love Yourself,” the hit song he wrote for Bieber, he told Jack Antonoff, “People always [ask], ‘Why didn’t you keep it?’ And to be honest, he was on such a roll at that point that I think it wouldn’t have been as big if I’d sung it. He had his whole period of his life that was a know what I mean…and America loves a comeback story.”

Over the years, he’s appeared on The Voice, Game of Thrones, Red Notice, Yesterday and a ketchup commercial with Heinz for undisclosed fees. The GOT cameo was supposed to be a surprise for Maisie Williams, his friend, on her last season, but castmate Sophie Turner let it slip. Though he clearly has many talents, Sheeran maintains that live shows are where his true passion lies.

“I’m in the music industry to play live,” he said at a London event reported by The Guardian. “That’s why I make records, that’s why I do radio interviews, that’s why I do Amazon events, that’s why I put things on Spotify. Having recorded music is fantastic, but playing live is where I buzz the most.”

3. What Are His Latest Accomplishments?

The artist’s latest album, Subtract, was released in May 2023, which included the song “Eyes Closed.” Two days before Subtract dropped, a docuseries, Ed Sheeran: The Sum of It All, debuted on Disney+.

Of the doc, he told Billboard, “I’ve always been very guarded in my personal and private life; the only documentary I’ve ever made has been one that focused on my songwriting. Disney approached me to make a four-part documentary, and it felt like the right time to open the door and let people in. I hope people enjoy it.”

4. What’s Next for Ed Sheeran?

He casually revealed that he has five albums planned, including one to be released posthumously. “I want to slowly make this album that is quote-unquote ‘perfect’ for the rest of my life, adding songs here and there,” he told Rolling Stone. “And just have it in my will that after I die, it comes out.”

Though we hope, of course, that he lives a long and happy life, we’re totally curious and can’t wait to hear it.
