Love Me Like You Do singer Ellie Goulding is heading to Dubai next year. The British songstress is set to perform at the Coca-Cola Arena on Friday, January 10.

Tickets for Night Lights with Ellie Goulding go on sale tomorrow at 9am. A portion of the tickets will be set at just Dh195.

Goulding was last in the UAE back in 2015, when she took to the stage during Dubai Music Week at Dubai World Trade Centre. She also performed at Sandance on New Year's Eve in 2012.

At her Dubai Music Week, she seemed to go down a storm. Of the gig, The National wrote: "After just a few songs, the crowd were chanting the singer’s first name in their thousands.

"Goulding, for her part, seemed genuinely touched – perhaps relieved after her last UAE gig experience. 'I do a lot of shows, perhaps 1,000 in the last 100 days – if that’s possible,' she tells the rapt audience, “and it really makes a difference when you’re performing to people who are really engaged.'"

Expect her to belt out her back catalogue of hits, including 2010's Starry Eyed, 2012's Anything Could Happen and 2016's Still Falling for You. In 2019, she has released three singles, Flux, Sixteen and Hate Me.

For Christmas 2019, Goulding has covered Joni Mitchell's River for Amazon Prime:
