Ellie Goulding Announces US Tour Dates in Support of US Debut Album "Lights" Due Out March 8th

CHERRYTREE/ INTERSCOPE ARTIST ELLIE GOULDING ANNOUNCES US TOUR DATES IN SUPPORT OF STATESIDE DEBUT LIGHTS OUT MARCH 8TH

 US INVASION COMMENCES AT SXSW


 

(Santa Monica, CA) UK singer and songwriter Ellie Goulding announced today that she will tour in support of her stateside debut, LIGHTS out March 8th on Cherrytree/ Interscope Records. The tour will commence with performances at SXSW and wrap at Coachella in Indio, CA.

Currently nominated for two 2011 BRIT Awards (for “British Female Solo Artist” and “British Breakthrough Act”), Goulding is gearing up for the Stateside release of Lights. “I’m really excited to come to America and visit new places and see new countryside,” she says. “I feel ready to introduce my music and see what people think of it there. I’m hoping they’ll like it and be inspired, the way I was when I first heard certain artists. I want to create that excitement you get when you’ve discovered something special and feel happy to have ever come across it in the first place.”

Having already conquered her native Britain with the best selling debut album of 2010, Lights -- premiering at No. 1 on the U.K. album chart, four hit singles she co-wrote, and a BRIT award -- singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding is ready to make a similar splash in America with her sparkling electro-folk-pop sound. This past December “Your Song” hit #2 on the charts and #1 on the iTunes Chart and the video has received over 7 million views. The focus track, “Starry Eyed” has already received over 13 million views on YouTube.

 

This past September, Ellie made her maiden voyage to the US in support of her EP, AN INTRODUCTION TO ELLIE GOULDING. She performed in New York and Los Angeles to rave reviews. The New Yorker called Ellie “the future of music” and the Los Angeles Times raved, “She can reel off some powerful drum and guitar chops and her voice is a serious and sure instrument in person.”

I'm so glad for Ellie to finally be hitting the US!

GOOD LUCK ELLIE!

Does anyone know what the presale password is for Toronto? There's no mention of presale passwords on any of the official websites except TicketWeb, but doesn't give details of how to get one.
