Pop star Billie Eilish (20) will hold a concert in Korea on August 15th, which is the National Liberation Day of Korea (Independence Day), at the Kochok Skydome in Seoul.
Hyundai Card announced that Billie Eilish will hold “Hyundai Card Super Concert 26 Billie Eilish” at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on August 15th at 8:00 pm. This is Hyundai Card Super Concert, which will be held for the first time in 2 years and 7 months since the performance of the British band QUEEN in January 2020.
This performance in Korea was realized as part of the world tour of the 2nd album “Happier Than Ever” released in May last year. Billie Eilish will perform a variety of stages at this concert, including songs recorded on vinyl and songs that have already been released.
Billie Eilish initially promoted the performance in Korea in 2020, but has postponed the schedule due to Korona-ka.
In addition, all seats on the tour that started in the United States in February this year have been sold out, and this performance in Korea also announced fierce advance competition.
Advance tickets will be sold at Interpark and Yes 24. For those who have a Hyundai card, advance advance sales will start at noon on the 5th of the following month, and general advance sales will start at noon on the 6th of the following month.
Hyundai Card said, “Billie Eilish is regarded as an artist who has both popularity and musicality at the same time.” “The songs she released have been played over 73 billion times on music sites around the world.” “
Billie Eilish will donate a portion of the proceeds from the ticket sales for this concert to the environmental group “REVERB”. One dollar (about 135 yen) will be donated for each ticket. REVERB plans to use the raised amount to solve climate change, such as reducing greenhouse gases.
Billie Eilish, who made her debut at the age of 13, was the first album released in 2019, and at the 62nd Grammy Awards the following year, she won the “Best Newcomer Award,” “Best Record Award,” “Best Song Award,” and “Best Album Award.” There were 5 crowns including 4 divisions.
