Performing live in Hong Kong for the very first time, teenage sensation Billie Eilish will be taking over the stage at AsiaWorld-Expo on August 30.
In case you don’t know who she is, this 18-year-old music genius exploded onto the pop music scene a few years back. Just last year, Eilish earned herself the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 with Bad Guy, a top-hit from her first full studio album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?. With over 55 million monthly listeners on Spotify, the singer has already clocked more than 17 billion global streams combined. And if that’s not enough to get you wondering what the hell you were doing when you were 18 years old, Eilish has also been nominated for six awards at this year’s Grammys, including Album of the Year and Best New Artist.
Known to her fans as the “Avril Lavigne of our era” (dyed hair, check. Baggy pants, check. Angsty attitude, check.), her other chart-topping hits include When the Party’s Over, Bury a Friend and her debut hit, Ocean Eyes in which she sings of romantic longings. Pre-sale for the concert starts on February 4 (10am to 11.59pm) for Live Nation members, while general ticket sales begin at 10am on February 5.
