Get deliriously thrilled as global phenomenon Ellie Goulding brings her Delirium World Tour Down Under this October for her biggest shows to date. Ellie is set to tear up arenas in Brisbane, Sydney, stopping by Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth with her electrifying music.
Ellie has indeed gone so far after her first two albums, Lights and Halcyon. She has now slithered her way up to superstardom with the release of her third studio album, Delirium under Universal Music, in November last year. Boasting a collection of expansive and dazzling bangers, Delirium met rave reviews and skyrocketed to the top ten in more than 14 countries.
Delirium’s carrier single, the Grammy-nominated worldwide hit ‘Love Me Like You Do’, easily dusted off world record for most streamed song in just a week, landing at no. 1 in 80 countries including both Australia and New Zealand where it was certified double and triple platinum respectively. Meanwhile, the song ‘On My Mind’, still from the album, secures Ellie’s spot as one of music’s most confident performers. Last month, Ellie dropped ‘Army’ and ‘Something In The Way You Move’, the former delving with authentic friendship and the latter tearing up airwaves with thumping beats – both tracks convince critics that Delirium is her finest album thus far.
“Delirium goes straight for the pop jugular, unleashing a relentless barrage of bangers that almost always hit the spot” – Five stars, The Guardian
“Delirium grounds Ellie Goulding’s penchant for spectacle in tightly-written pop songs. Her evocative storytelling and ability to craft great dance music is all here… making a mature pop record that feels like a natural progression” – Pitchfork
Apart from having solo chart scorchers ‘Anything Could Happen’ and ‘Burn’, Ellie also collaborated with Major Lazer on the reggae-tinged smash ‘Powerful’ as well as with Calvin Harris on the multi-platinum selling singles ‘I Need Your Love’ and ‘Outside’.
Having just done a standout Grammys performance, the Brit Award winning singer-songwriter left fans at Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Glastonbury swooning for more. She also staged an intimate, one-off show at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre in October of last year.
“Last night’s show proved that Ellie Goulding is a sheer pop powerhouse and it will be a show that I’m sure will be talked about by fans for quite some time.” – Renowned For Sound
“Goulding gave everything she had in the last 20 minutes of her show, bringing the house down with her hits You My Everything, Love Me Like You Do and Burn and finally calling it an end with her new banger On My Mind… She ended things in style and did not disappoint.” – Project U
Joining Ellie Goulding as guests will be UK electronic virtuosos Years & Years who have impressed fans with their debut album Communion (out now through Universal Music). The album contains the chart scorcher tracks ‘King’ and ‘Shine’.
Tasmanian-born indie queen Asta, Winner of triple j Unearthed High and coming in at #50 in triple j Hottest 100 with her debut single ‘My Heart Is On Fire’, will also be supporting Ellie. After the release of follow-up single ‘I Need Answers’, Asta immediately embarked on her first national tour that included appearances at Pyramid Rock & Falls Festival and a lauded supporting slot at Ellie’s Enmore show last October. Astra also teamed with up with Australian hip-hop prodigy AllDay to mastermind the infectious track ‘Dynamite’.
Leaving Australian audiences’ jaws dropped time and time again, Ellie Goulding’s arena Delirium World Tour promises her most exhilarating performances to date. Bursting with hits and joined by special guests Years & Years and Asta, get yourselves ready for a showstopping display of showmanship and raw talent.
