This Digital Writer was lucky enough to see Billie Eilish close Reading Festival last summer and, what a performance it was!


It's easy to forget that the seven-time Grammy award winning artist is 22-years-old with the string of hits to her name, such as Bad Guy and What Was I Made For, and the captivating stage presence she has. If you're yet to see Eilish live in the UK, the Los Angeles born singer has a surprise for you: she's bringing her Hit Me Hard and Soft tour to British and Irish cities next summer.

Eilish was just 15 years old when she had her breakthrough, with the hit song Ocean Eyes. Riding the wave of the 2016 single, Eilish released her 2019 debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, which features the smash singles You Should See Me In a Crown, Bury a Friend, and When the Party's Over. The success of this debut album meant Eilish (rightfully so) swept up at the Grammys, winning awards for Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best New Artist.

The American singer songwriter's sophomore album, Happier Than Ever, became Eilish's second consecutive album to enter at number one on the Billboard 200. To add to her growing list of accolades, Eilish won her first Academy Award in 2022 for the James Bond theme song, No Time to Die.

The Hit Me Hard and Soft tour, which will visit America, Australia and Europe, is in support of her third studio album of the same name. The album is scheduled for release on 17th May this year, and the Going Out team can barely wait!
