He teased the tour with projections across UK landmarks, including Battersea power station and the Angel of the North.

The tour is entitled the Mathematics tour, or + – = ÷ x, named after a string of his studio albums. He is currently gearing up for the release of =, which comes out on 29 October.

Its first single Bad Habits has spent 11 weeks at No 1. He is expected to knock himself off the top today, with new single Shivers.

Tickets for the Mathematics tour go on sale on Saturday 25 September.

In 2019, he broke U2’s record for the highest-grossing tour of all time, generating £567m ($776m) from 260 concerts and 8.5m tickets sold.
