Amazing Stage Fabrics in Motion

Ellie Goulding

Delirium World Tour
April 2016

How to dress up a rock ‘n’ roll stage with flexible and eye-catching set pieces? Get creative with decorative fabrics by ShowTex! And that’s exactly what the set designers of Ellie Goulding’s latest Delirium World Tour did.

Remember the opening act, where two golden LurexVoile 100 glitter fabric drapes by ShowTex are shining and sparkling in the middle of the stage waiting for the right moment to reveal the one and only star of the evening?

At the push of a button and blink of an eye, a ShowTex Kabuki system drops the curtains kicking off the show with a big bang-like surprise while a mood of euphoria swept through the audience.

During "Explosions", Ellie appears on stage in a white wedding dress graciously dragging two large-scale elastic bridal veils in PolyStretch P8 CS Matt behind her. Eventually, Ellie spreads her wings when the elegant bespoke decorative stretch fabrics are fully stretched out to its their original shape resulting in a very powerful visual effect.

The elastic wings seem to vanish into thin air by releasing another Kabuki 50 drop system, after which they are quickly removed from stage ready for another change of scenery.

ShowTex provided multiple fully customised colourful banners for the hit song "Keep on Dancing" in combination with flame-retardant fabric Spinnaker and glow in the dark fabric PhosphorFoil strips for the ultimate psychedelic special effect.

Ellie Goulding’s Delirium Tour is simply bursting with Amazing Stage Fabrics In Motion and this proves that soft goods can work magic on top performer’s stage.
