Ellie Goulding Hiatus to Follow ‘Delirium’ Tour; Last Chance to Buy Tickets on Sale
If you love Ellie Goulding, this spring and summer may be your last chance to see the English singer live for quite some time. Although Goulding is set to launch her Delirium Tour on April 1 in Vancouver, the pop star has recently announced that she'll be taking a hiatus from music once it wraps on June 21 in New York City.
The break will come after a jam-packed summer for the 29-year-old singer who is also slated to appear at a handful of festivals this summer as well, including Firefly in Dover, Delaware, Hangout Fest in Gulf Shores, Alabama, and Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. Tickets to see Ellie Goulding have hit the secondary market, and fans should expect to see prices rise as dates get closer.

It's uncertain whether or not Goulding's recent hiatus announcement will impact the ticket demand, but tickets are already expensive regardless. Across all of her performances, resale tickets are averaging $124, with the highest price points in Houston, Grand Prairie and Los Angeles. Tickets for her Houston show on April 18 are currently averaging $147, with the cheapest ticket priced at $83. Goulding's least expensive stop is scheduled to be her June 14 stop at the Constellation Brands Performing Arts Center in Canandaigua, New York, where tickets are averaging just $63, with the cheapest ticket going for only $36, according to data provided by TiqIQ. The upstate New York show is considerably cheaper than her stop in Manhattan on June 21, where tickets are averaging $121, with a get-in price of $44. Fans traveling to see Goulding's stop in New York City can secure parking in Manhattan through parkwhiz.com, where rates begin as low as $5.
Goulding's performances at Hangout Fest and Bonnaroo, although padded with dozens of other huge touring acts, are by far the priciest dates the singer will see this summer. 3-day passes to Hangout Music Festival are averaging $580 with the cheapest pass up for grabs for $265, while a 4-day pass to Bonnaroo is currently averaging $494 with the cheapest pass going for $346.
A pending break from music is warranted for Ellie Goulding. In a report from Bustle, the singer explained that she has been touring for "seven years non-stop," and needs additional time to recover from her breakup with McFly bassist Dougie Poynter, whom she was in a relationship with for two years.
