ELLIE GOULDING – LIVE AT ULSTER HALL, 28.11.2010

Headed to the Ulster Hall last night to see Ellie Goulding’s second concert in Belfast this year, having previously played Spring and Airbreak in March.

The change, to a much bigger venue, is an indicator of the success she has had this year, and she currently sits at Number 2 on the Singles Chart, with a cover of ‘Your Song’

She first caught my attention late last year with the excellent ‘Under The Sheets’, which wasn’t the chart success it should have been, with follow-up singles ‘Starry Eyed’, ‘Guns and Horses’ and ‘The Writer’ getting higher placings.

Like her discography, this concert began with ‘Under The Sheets’, a song led by a hypnotic drum beat, which Ellie replicates on stage, beating in time to her band’s drummer.

With only a back catalogue to work with, this was never going to be a long concert, but Ellie made every second count, keeping talking to a minimum and playing her hits.

Her current single, a cover of Elton John’s ‘Your Song’, brought the house down.

To be honest, i’m not that big a fan of the song (I’m not even that big a fan of the original, as Elton John has done far better songs), but Ellie, with only a pianist for company, had the crowd in her hand.

She finished off with an encore, playing her hit ‘Starry Eyed’

A concert well worth missing X-Factor for. You didn’t need to watch UTV to see the UK’s next big music star, she was playing in our own city.
