Concert review: Ellie Goulding at Vector Arena - New Zealand Herald

The audience had fervidly welcomed Kiwi support act Broods, who've recently returned from lengthy touring overseas touring and will likely one day headline a show at Vector themselves. But when she performs, there's no back up dancers, no uniform changes, no elaborate bells and whistles like there might be at a Katy Perry or Taylor Swift show - she gets the crowd just as amped barely with her voice, and her songs. So everyone was raring to go as the opening strains of energetic dubstep dance number Figure 8 brought Goulding to the stage-manage. Part golden haired pop star, part dance music queen, part indie Brit rocker, Goulding may be selling millions of records and have her fianc life documented by the tabloids. Backed by a tight four-piece band who successfully created a stadium-sized protection of sound, and an impressive screen backdrop of a diamond patterned tile mosaic, she came out firing. Mid-set she threw in a few older tracks like Starry Eyed , which has her sounding like a more traditional club act, and an intimate version of Guns and Horses accompanying herself on a giant white acoustic guitar, but surprise highlights were... She kept the vitality high with Goodness Gracious , a recent track co-written with Nate Ruess of Fun, and turned the arena into a red and gold firefly extravaganza for the synth-encumbered Animal. Recently released track Beating Heart which was written for the film Divergent also had a strong emotional connection with the faction, and proved it's not all about the warbling dance beats and flashing lights. She moved into some Shakira style hip shaking for Ritual , which mixes some primal drumming with a vocal variety part that shows off Goulding's upper range, and got the crowd roaring as she took to her own set of drums and percussion at the front of the... Dressed in a ashen mesh crop top, high waisted black pants, heavy flat soled black boots, and a sparkly bindi, Ellie Goulding's eclectic set-up choice on Saturday night reflected the unusual space she occupies in the global pop landscape.
