It’s been a disappointing year for live music fans as the global lockdown has seen numerous events cancelled up and down the country. However, as restrictions begin to ease, it seems there is finally light at the end of the tunnel.


Some artists have begun to announce their tours for 2021 and is Ellie Goulding is one of them. The Love Me Like You Do singer confirmed her 2021 UK tour for April and May next year. Goulding's Brightest Blue tour follows her album of the same name, which is due for release 17th July this year.

The album reportedly has two very different halves, one reflecting vulnerability and the other fearlessness.

Speaking of the first half, the singer said: “It acknowledges a complex world where relationships still dictate our happiness and heartbreak and can still be the most painful thing in the world.”

However, she goes onto explain that the album’s second half, “encapsulates my confident, brave and fearless side and features all my recent collaborations”.

Goulding described the album as a “passion project” which has been five years in the making. During this time she had clear ideas about what she wanted the tour to be like.

“Throughout the entire process I’ve been able to picture exactly what the live staging would look like – intimate, stripped back, honest, yet incredibly visual and special. I can’t wait!”

Ellie Goulding announced the pre-sale for her tour with a personal video on her official Twitter page:
