Ellie Goulding Announces North American Headline Tour in Support of US Debut


(Santa Monica, CA) Cherrytree/Interscope recording artist ELLIE GOULDING returnsstateside this summer for her second headline tour in support of her critically acclaimed solodebut LIGHTS. Aptly named, “THE LIGHTS TOUR” begins July 23 in Atlanta and wraps inlate August. “I am really excited about the next tour,” says Ellie. “This time we are ready; weare better prepared. Every city brought something new and I learned a lot playing to differentcrowds. It is a learning curve. America get ready -- we're coming and it's going to be huge!”

Having already conquered her native Britain with the best selling debut album of 2010, singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding has won over the US audience garnering rave reviews. Lights is, asthe New York Times put it, “a happy car crash of signifiers: part electro-pop, part soul, part blues,part indie rock, part folk” that mixes heartfelt emotion with other-worldly atmospherics and theLos Angeles Times raves, “plenty of ethereal hooks, the album carries a dark overcast with ahandful of emotionally raw tracks.” Rolling Stone calls Lights, “sweet, sexed-up folktronica”and Entertainment Weekly affirms “anthemic dance-pop confessional.”

This spring, Ellie made headlines when she was personally asked by William and Kate to play atthe royal wedding. May followed with performances on Saturday Night Live and Live With Regisand Kelly. Check out Ellie live on “THE LIGHTS TOUR”:
