Billie Eilish Celebrates First Arena Show in Over a Year
Billie Eilish celebrated her return to the live stage after more than a year.
The 19-year-old Grammy winner gave her first arena performance on Saturday (Sept. 18) during the 2021 iHeartRadio Festival at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. It's the first time she has played an arena since her Where We Do Go? World Tour was cut short in March 2020 due to the global pandemic.
A clearly excited Eilish told the crowd: "It’s been a year-and-a-half, what the f***! Let’s do this s***, let’s have fun!
"Forget everything that’s s***ty in your life and just have fun and dance and jump around."
During her five-song set, Eilish performed "My Future" and the title track from her sophomore album, Happier Than Ever, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in early August. She also played “Bury a Friend,” “Bad Guy” and “Oxycontin," from her 2019 debut album.
Other performers on the 2021 iHeartRadio Festival bill included Coldplay, Dua Lipa, Olivia Rodrigo, Yungblud, Saweetie, Lil Baby, Florida Georgia Line and others.
Early next year, she is also set to embark on a 32-date North American arena tour before heading overseas to perform in Europe and the UK.
