Following the announcement of her upcoming album Brightest Blue, double Brit-award winning superstar Ellie Goulding has announced her forthcoming Brightest Blue Tour. Playing in April and May 2021, the tour will see Ellie perform at intimate venues across the UK and Ireland.
Tickets go on sale this Friday (3rd July) at 9am via LiveNation.co.uk, but fans who pre-order the album from Ellie’s official store before 5pm on Tuesday, June 30 will be given access to an exclusive pre-sale starting on Wednesday, July 1 at 9am.
Speaking on the tour announcement Ellie said:
“I’m so excited to get back on the road and do what I do best. This album has been such a passion project over the past five years and throughout the entire process I’ve been able to picture exactly what the live staging would look like – intimate, stripped back, honest, yet incredibly visual and special. I can’t wait!”
Explaining her thoughts behind the first half of the record Ellie explain that it “reflects my vulnerability… it acknowledges a complex world where relationships still dictate our happiness and heartbreak and can still be the most painful thing in the world, no matter how enlightened you are. The tracks also symbolise growing up and becoming a woman.” While the second half of the album “encapsulates my confident, brave and fearless side and features all my recent collaborations.” Ellie elaborates, “I often find myself writing about my thoughts and emotions in a way that I know will be catchy and memorable. I will always seek to use my voice in ways that no one would ever expect and look to collaborate with the least likely, exciting and eclectic group of other artists.”
