Ed Sheeran is all set to come to India next year, as part of the Asian leg of his ‘+ – = ÷ x’ tour. Sheeran’s popular hit songs such as ‘Shape Of You’, ‘Thinking Out Loud’, ‘Photograph’, ‘Beautiful People’ have their own fanbases in India. So, it is not surprising that his fans are all excited to watch the popstar perform in Mumbai. In fact, people are reportedly even lapping up credit cards so that they can grab tickets to his tour for a cheaper price.
According to a report in The Economic Times, the upcoming tour has helped Kotak Mahindra Bank sell more cards. The lender that has tied up with the organisers of the Mumbai show, is now seeing applications to the tune of 30,000 per day, a huge bump from the usual 5,000-6,000 applications a day.
Ed Sheeran’s concert tickets priced at a minimum Rs 7,500 were available for Rs 5,500 for white credit cardholders on pre-sale, the daily reported. The presale for the tickets, ranging from Rs 7,500-30,000, were available on presale for two days.
