By Airi Nakamoto
On Friday, April 1st, Ellie Goulding kicked off the North American leg of her Delirium World Tour in Vancouver. In case you missed it, here’s our recap of the delirious night.
The night began with New Zealand pop-duo Broods energizing the eager crowd. Their performance that night was raw and intense – From their captivating vocals to their intimate stage presence. Singing their hit song “Bridges”, the duo carried out an unforgettable performance that electrified the crowd before Goulding made her appearance.
True to form, Ellie Goulding satisfied the arena of fans with her charming performance presence. The UK singer-songwriter performed a two-hour long show that showcased hit radio regulars from her musical career, with an emphasis on her latest album, titled Delirium. She dazzled the crowd with chart hits like “Something in the Way You Move”, “On My Mind”, “Burn” and “Anything Could Happen”.
Goulding left the crowd breathless with her vocal prowess; That distinct tone filled Rogers Arena. Her allure peaked during her touching performance of her track “Army”, in which she dedicated to her best friend. In a moment of fan connection, she asked audience members to “raise their hand if they were with their best friend”, in which the crowd keenly replied. During the performance, photos of the singer’s friend backdropped the stage on the big screen, creating an atmosphere of friendship and devotion that set the song apart from the rest of the night.
Saving one of her most recognizable songs for last, Goulding wrapped up the entertaining night with “Love Me Like You Do” while the crowd was showered with gold confetti, making for an impressive blend of artistry and spectacle.
