At just sixteen years old, Billie Eilish had the sold-out El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles wrapped around her finger. Eager teenagers that mimic her iconic style belted every lyric with an unmatched passion.
The “Wheres My Mind Tour” set began with her band shooting “1 Billie-on” dollar bills at the crowd with Supreme brand money guns. She ran onstage moments later to perform “bellyache,” an obvious crowd favorite.
Her fans are committed to say the least. Young teens at the barricade were sharing all about their experience meeting her and how much they genuinely love being a fan of hers. They had waited all day to see Eilish perform and whipped out self-made signs the second she took the stage.
Billie Eilish is a performer above all. While her voice is spectacular, it is her stage presence that makes her live shows so remarkable. As a former dancer, Eilish bumps and jumps to every beat with ease.
She is a badass—simple as that. Eilish is not afraid to share her opinion and does so with utmost confidence. After performing a track, she paused to let everyone know that she was thinking about “how ugly Donald Trump is” throughout the song, much to the crowd’s amusement. Later, she laughed about accidentally ripping her Gucci shorts while dancing her heart out.
After seeing Billie Eilish play a much smaller venue in Massachusetts, this show was an entirely different experience. She has increased the value of her live show all while staying true to herself as an artist, something many people twice her age struggle with doing.
