Billie Eilish announces two encore Los Angeles shows

Happier Than Ever, The Hometown Encore takes place this Dec

Billie Eilish has announced two special hometown shows — dubbed Happier Than Ever, The Hometown Encore — as a celebration to her highly successful global Happier Than Ever Tour this year. Produced by Live Nation, the two shows take place this December 15th and 16th at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, CA.

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 Sunday, October 23rd at 11:59 pm PT for the Verified Fan presale. Registered fans who receive a unique code will have access to purchase tickets before the general public on Tuesday, October 25th at 10 am PT though 10 pm PT. Remaining tickets will go on sale Wednesday, October 26th at 10 am PT via Ticketmaster.

With the release of her sophomore album Happier Than Ever debuting at No. 1 in the Billboard 200 in the US 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 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 US as well as 17 additional countries around the world upon release in 2019, and was the most streamed album of that year. Both album’s were critically acclaimed worldwide and were written, produced and recorded entirely by Eilish and brother Finneas.

Eilish has made history as the youngest artist to receive nominations and win in all the major categories at the 62nd Grammy Awards, receiving an award for Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Album, and is also the youngest artist to write and record an official James Bond theme song, “No Time To Die,” which won an Academy Award for Best Song this year.
