Billie Eilish is a big deal right now. Her meteoric rise to fame is amazing considering she’s only 17-years-old. The sound of her music has been described as brooding with a combination of genres that touch on pop, EDM, and even jazz. She’s one of the youngest people to ever make the charts on the Billboard 200. Her song, “Bad Guy” was a number one hit. Let’s look at where the newest darling of the music scene comes from and how you can see her perform live at a festival or concert site near you.
Billie Eilish’s Rise to Fame
In 2016, a 14-year-old Billie Eilish was just a kid that liked to sing and dance in her hometown of Highland Park, Los Angeles. One night she decided to upload one of the songs she had written and performed on the music streaming service, SoundCloud. The song was called “Ocean Eyes” and she immediately gained a massive following from it. She co-writes and collaborates many times on musical projects with her older brother, Finneas O’Connell, who is 21-years-old. Both of them were homeschooled by their parents which allowed them to spend more time together to strengthen their bond. This sibling duo is creating classics every time they step in the studio.
From there she released her first EP, Don’t Smile At Me, in 2017. She only got more popular. Billie does have a very unique fashion sense with looks that lean towards punk with a distinctly British vibe. Her clothes are baggy and she often changes her hair. Most recently she had shockingly bright neon green roots with black ends for her musical appearance on Saturday Night Live. However, even though her outfits are always outlandish they can never overshadow her musical talent.
When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
When she released her first full album, five of the singles were in the top 40. Those include the songs, “Wish You Were Gay,” and “When The Party’s Over.” The sound of her voice is whispery and high, with a musical style that many people can’t quite put their finger on except to describe it as “different.” It’s a compliment to Billie to be able to come onto the music scene to completely reinvigorate the genre. Her fans are very excited about the future of her music.
Tickets for an Extended World Tour
Billie has basically been on tour since April 13, 2019, with the When We All Fall Asleep Tour. This is a global tour that had Billie in Europe, Australia, and various parts of North America. It started at the Empire Polo Club that was a venue for Coachella performances. This tour is scheduled to go through November 17, 2019, with an end date in Mexico City. Before that, you can catch her in cities like Dallas, Houston, Boston, and Austin during the month of October, including two dates at the Austin City Limits Festival Weekend on October 11 and 12th.
The Where Do We Go World Tour is scheduled for 2020. The starting date is March 9, 2020, in Miami, Florida and ends July 27, 2020, in London, England. Clearly, this is a musician that aims to get as much notoriety and success as possible by touring extensively to reach her fans all over the world. Her live shows are engaging and just as unique as she is!
