On Tuesday, Academy and seven-time Grammy award-winning artist and songwriter Billie Eilish announced two special hometown shows – “Happier Than Ever, The Hometown Encore” – as a celebration to her successful global tour this year. Produced by Live Nation, the shows take place Dec. 15-16 at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, California.
To ensure tickets get into the hands of fans, the tour has partnered with Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform for these shows. Fans can register through 11:59 p.m. PT Sunday, Oct. 23, here for the Verified Fan presale. Registered fans who receive a unique code will have access to purchase tickets before the general public at BillieEilish.com.
With the release of her sophomore album, “Happier Than Ever,” debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in the U.S. and in 19 countries across the globe, the 20-year-old Los Angeles native remains one of the biggest stars to emerge in the 21st century. Since the release of her debut single “ocean eyes” in 2015, Eilish, her team said, “continues to shatter the ceiling of music with her genre-defying sound.”
Fast forward from her humble breakout, her album “WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?” also debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in the U.S., as well as 17 additional countries around the world upon release in 2019, and was the most streamed album of that year. Both albums were critically acclaimed worldwide and were written, produced and recorded entirely by Eilish and brother FINNEAS.
