Ellie Goulding by the Numbers: From Lights and Halcyon to Ex-BF Skrillex
A few months before releasing what would be her biggest U.S. hit, EDM fans in America learned the name Ellie Goulding for reasons almost entirely unrelated to her music. She had snagged the arm of dubstep dynamo Sonny John "Skrillex" Moore. Unfortunately, though, their love wasn't destined to last. The distance between them and full-time touring schedules forced Ellie and Sonny to call it quits -- albeit on good terms. The radio-friendly relationship lasted only one year.
On October 11, 2012, Goulding set out on her second world tour in support of Halcyon with a kickoff show in New York City. And ultimately, over the course of eight months, she will have made 53 stops across the U.S. and Europe. Her performance at the Fillmore will be the 14th show, but it's gonna be the first of 2013, so you know her voice should be rested and in good shape. Of Ellie's 40 remaining appearances, 12 concerts have already sold out!
Thankfully, there are still some tickets for Goulding's Fillmore gig. And if you buy tix ahead of time, the total price tag comes to $40 via livenation.com. So you might as well snag a pair now. After all, as Ellie sings: "Anything Could Happen."
