Ellie Goulding announces Sydney sideshow

Last time she was here, in November last year, she played an Oxford Art Factory show that sold out like a tray of sweet, ethereally-voiced hotcakes.

Now Ellie Goulding is back in Australia again in a couple of weeks – we can’t keep her away. And who’s complaining?

This time, in a one-off Sydney sideshow when she performs with Future Music Festival, she’s in bigger surroundings at the Metro (but still a hell of a lot smaller and more intimate than a Future stage) on the 8th of March.

The ooh-oohs are probably still rattling around your head from ‘Anything Can Happen’, the addictive standout off her debut album Lights which – fun fact – put her in two’s company with Adele, as the only other person to simultaneously top the BBC’s Sound of 2010 poll while also taking out the Brit Critics’ Choice Award – a resounding critical and POP success.

Now her second album Halcyon is out, her first single an intense cover of Active Child’s emotionally charged ‘Hanging On’, accompanied by Tinie Tempah.

Her latest single is a trembling electro-pop ballad called ‘Figure 8’ – watch it below.

Tickets for her one-off Metro sideshow go on sale in at 9am on Monday, 25th of February via Ticketek – that’s in two days! One for the diaries, popsters.
