One of the live recruits for this year’s Future Music Festival tour, UK singer-songwriter (and former Skrillex muse) Ellie Goulding has found time for a show on the side. Following the rapid sell-out of her promo shows here last year, don’t expect tickets to last long for this single show at the Metro Theatre. Tickets on sale Monday 25 February through Ticketek.
Having made her name with debut album Lights, Goulding recently released her sophomore album, Halcyon, preceded by early single Hanging On, a collaboration with Tinie Tempah. Her promo tour in November 2012 was to spread the word on the album’s single Anything Could Happen. “Hood up, like Darth Vader in a boxing ring, she punches her way through the best tracks from new album ‘Halcyon’,” NME wrote of a recent Goulding show. “‘Anything Can Happen’ is the natural successor to her 2010 single ‘Starry Eyed’, while ‘Only You’ is a stuttering, jittering stomp.”
