"Shape of You" is now the most streamed track on Spotify, bumping Drake's "One Dance" down to the No. 2 spot.

So when tickets for Ed Sheeran's just-announced 2018 Minnesota show go on sale, don't be surprised if they're not available for long. 

The 26-year-old singer-songwriter will play U.S. Bank Stadium on Oct. 20, 2018, as part of an arena tour. It's one of 15 North American dates he announced Friday

He even donned a custom Vikings jersey in the announcement video.

He's only got one other date in the northern Midwest – an Oct. 17, 2018, show at the Fargodome. So if you really fancy the British crooner and are looking to see him twice, that's the shortest drive.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Oct. 20 of 2017. But there's an Oct. 16 presale if you sign up as a verified fan through Ticketmaster.

As mentioned above, Sheeran just overtook Drake as the Spotify streaming king (though honestly, we're a bit surprised it's not "Despacito" considering the year that track has had).

Sheeran's most recent studio release, Divide, has helped make him Spotify's current MVP, Billboard writes, with the album and first single "Shape of You" smashing records.

He just released the lyric video for his fourth single from Divide, "Perfect."
