Global superstar Ellie Goulding reveals the dates of her forthcoming Brightest Blue Tour a special intimate run of dates set to hit the U.K. and Ireland in 2021, her album " Brightest Blue" was released in 2020. Ellie Goulding has had eleven Top 10 hit singles in the UK, including three number ones. ------------------ A sold out show for Ellie Goulding tonight. ELLIE GOULDING arrived on stage at 9pm and played for 1 hour 45 mins. Ellie Goulding is wearing a stunning sparkly jumpsuit, that had huge cuffs/butterfly wings. Amazingly she kept it on all night, so she must have been sweating buckets. The stage can barely contain Goulding, who is flanked by a simple drum set and a keyboard. She stomps, skips and sways with the enthusiasm of a glam rock aerobics instructor. There are three backing singers and two violinists playing along with the band. The first set is mainly low key vanilla tracks from the current album, and most of her big hits are played in the second half of her set. A big screen shows slogans including some sympathy for climate change. An electro-pop show that gradually got better and better....enjoyable. Full ELLIE GOUlDING setlist played tonight...
