Your Pop Alternative Source
We were lucky enough to see Ellie live at Webster Hall in New York City, and she didn't disappoint! The bleached blonde singer came out like a rockstar, in ripped black tights, black jean shorts and a black mesh top. She played her hit UK album Lights in its entirety, adding three new songs to her energetic set for her US fans—including her stripped-down, acoustic cover of Elton John's "Your Song." And between strumming on her guitar, dancing around stage and repeatedly telling the screaming crowd "Thank you so much," Ellie also showed off her amazing drumming skills on songs, "Under the Sheets" and "Starry Eyes."
CG: Describe what this US tour has been like for you?
EG: It was all kind of a big shock to me. We started off at SXSW which was a bit mental. It was a lot of fun. There was music in every single venue, which was really bizarre but amazing. And then we branched off. Knowing that I have a fan base in all of these cities is incredible! I can't believe that there are people who know every single word. It's insane and really overwhelming, actually. But I just hope it keeps going and that I can build up a fan base over here.
