Ellie Goulding lights up Uptown Amphitheatre


Ellie Goulding’s devotion is keeping the Delirium World Tour on its rails at the moment.

The talented vocalist hit a rough patch in mid-May, when her opening band Years and Years abruptly decided to cancel their involvement in the remainder of the tour according to Mirror. The band didn’t divulge into thorough details as to why, but did reveal that Olly Alexander was “ill.”

Furthermore, Ellie Goulding’s admitted anxiety attacks add to the adversity.

Regardless, the show goes on and amidst the misfortune, the English singer has found a way to deliver sparkling performances as the tour progresses. Both the Houston Press and the Tampa Bay Times admitted that the transitioning pop star gave her all which was more than welcomed by her audience. Additional reviewers have even stated that Ellie Goulding’s shows are worth every penny.

These kind sentiments may come as as shock to some considering what’s been on Ellie Goulding’s plate recently. However, although it’s easily forgotten, Ellie Goulding is a veteran in the scene. The alluring vocalist presents an unrivaled musical style and irresistible vibe. Her most recent album, Delirium, which she called an “experiment” is arguably her best piece of work to date and pop-infused songs are sure to have the audience moving from left to right.

The long anticipated spectacle arrives with enthusiasm as Charlotteans have waited months for the Delirium World Tour to stop through North Carolina. While other superstar music acts continue to cancel shows in the state, Ellie Goulding’s devotion to the craft and fans is a breath of fresh air. She’s kept the tour together in the thick of adversity and has set an example for her fans. While she braves her own setbacks, Ellie Goulding’s positive attitude is sure to please the sold-out crowd Thursday night.
