NORTH AMERICAN “HALCYON DAYS TOUR” KICKS OFF JANUARY 16th
HALCYON, Goulding’s Sophomore CD, Enters Top 10 on the Billboard 200 and Debuts at No. 2 on U.K. Album Chart
October 22, 2012 --Santa Monica, CA – Cherrytree/Interscope recording artist ELLIE GOULDING hits the road this winter for a four week tour commencing January 16th in Miami. The Halcyon Days Tour visits major North American cities before wrapping February 12th in Los Angeles. Pre-sale is underway on Wednesday, October 24 and tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, October 26 on Ellie’s official website at http://elliegoulding.com/live-dates/.
"I'm so excited to start touring my new album Halcyon properly,” said Goulding. “I’m incredibly proud of this record and the reaction has been over-whelming. Touring and playing shows is my favorite part of what I do, and I really can't wait to get on the road."
The first single, “Anything Could Happen” along with the other tracks from Halcyon was written and co-produced byGoulding. The singer’s breakthrough #1 single, “Lights” cleared the path for Halcyon which debuted in the top 10 on theBillboard Top 200 Chart upon its release earlier this month.
Entertainment Weekly called Goulding “exactly the kind of art-pop outsider we like to import from the U.K.” and the The New York Times described Halcyon as “a deeply felt swirl of synthesizers, piano and slowly building crescendos.” “The hooks always go to town, and her voice mates gorgeously with electronics,” raved Rolling Stone.
Halcyon is the follow up to Goulding’s full-length debut album, Lights, which was the best-selling debut album of 2010 in the UK. The single, “Lights” has sold over 3.4 million copies in the US and topped the Top 40 radio chart for two consecutive weeks at #1.
