BRINGING THE DELIRIUM WORLD TOUR TO AUSTRALIAN & NEW ZEALAND ARENAS THIS SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER
with special guest ASTA (AU shows only)
Frontier Touring is thrilled to confirm that global phenomenon Ellie Goulding will bring the Delirium World Tour to Australia and New Zealand this September and October for her biggest shows to date! Joined by special guest Asta (AU shows only), Ellie is set to electrify arenas in Christchurch, Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
Celebrated as a force to be reckoned with for her first two albums Lights and Halcyon, Ellie Goulding firmly cemented herself as a superstar with the release of third studio album Delirium (Universal Music) in November last year. An expansive and dazzling collection of genre-defying bangers, Delirium scored immediate acclaim and climbed the top ten in no less than 14 different countries.
Delirium’s first offering was the Grammy-nominated chartbuster ‘Love Me Like You Do’ that swiftly broke the world record for most streamed song in one week, skyrocketing to #1 in 80 countries including both Australia and New Zealand where it was certified double and triple platinum respectively. The next cut from Delirium was ‘On My Mind’, a swagger-charged anthem that reasserts Ellie as one of music’s most surprising and confident performers. Last month Ellie served the one-two punch of ‘Army’ and ‘Something In The Way You Move’, the former a sweeping ode to authentic friendship and the latter an irresistible thumper - both tracks have critics applauding Delirium as her finest album to date.
‘Delirium goes straight for the pop jugular, unleashing a relentless barrage of bangers that almost always hit the spot’- ★★★★ 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
Alongside solo chart scorchers ‘Anything Could Happen’ and ‘Burn’, Ellie recently teamed with Major Lazer on the reggae-tinged smash ‘Powerful’ and collaborated with Calvin Harris on the multi-platinum selling singles ‘I Need Your Love’ and ‘Outside’.
In addition to an outstanding Grammys performance this week, the Brit Award winning singer-songwriter collected high praise for appearances at Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Glastonbury and an intimate, one-off show she performed 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 at her Australian performances will be Tasmanian-born indie queen Asta, who has swiftly stolen the hearts of Australia after winning triple j Unearthed High and coming in at #50 in triple j Hottest 100 with her debut single ‘My Heart Is On Fire’. After the release of follow-up single ‘I Need Answers’, Asta hit the road for 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 tear up airwaves on the infectious track ‘Dynamite’.
Having thrilled Australian and New Zealand audiences 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 guest Asta, these shows will be a blockbuster display of showmanship and raw talent.
