The 28-year-old British singer will set the all-time highest-grossing tour record with Friday's show in Hannover, Germany, according to Pollstar.

Pollstar forecasts the total gross to this point of $736.7 million will top the previous record of $735.4 million set by Rock and Roll Hall of Famers U2 in 2011.

In a statement, Sheeran calls it "amazing."
