16-year-old music sensation Billie Eilish is back in Toronto, this time selling-out two back-to-work shows at The Phoenix! The L.A.-born and raised Singer, who consistently has been filling concert halls all her Tour, arrived at the venue prepped with barricades, making a big entrance, diving into her adoring fans only to get yanked away by her security as soon as fans began rushing her.
She played an hour-long set highlighting her understated repertoire and dynamic emotive voice, including viral hit ocean eyes, bitches broken hearts, you should see me in a crown, idontwannabeyouanymore,lovely (performed originally with Khalid) and her latest, when the party’s over. If you haven’t heard her Music, think an even more minimalist Lana Del Rey.
Despite not feeling well, she was kind enough to come out in the rain and hug fans after her Show. We were lucky to get a Snap, which upset her bodyguard. She told us to be good to ourselves! The pic doesn’t do the blue-haired Songstress with a maturity beyond her years, any justice. But it’s Halloween!🎃

He’s definitely the future. 19-year-old Texas-born Singer/Songwriter Khalid has developed an ardent fan base rapidly over the past year and he’s showing no signs of stopping any time soon.
Touring in support of his U.S. Billboard Hot 200 Top Ten-charting debut disc AMERICAN TEEN, he consistently has sold-out venues, delivering his unique Alternative/Electronic twist on R&B, adorned with his smooth Texan-inflected Baritone.
He brought his American Teen tour to Toronto’s trendy Rebel on the waterfront, bringing a majority late-teen-to-twentysomething crowd to their feet. Many were seen dancing on the club’s cozy couches and shoulder-riding. The experience was enhanced by sophisticated LED visuals and a high-energy duo of back-up dancers – Khalid himself full of moves.
Dressed in a sharp gingham two-piece with pants which ripped mid-set, he left the stage momentarily but got back into the groove quickly in a “Black Creatives Matter” t-shirt and track pants.
Khalid was front and center in a high-energy, compact set highlighting his short but promising catalog of material including American Teen, Let’s Go, Location and Young Dumb and Broke, striking a deep chord with many Millennials who sang along start to finish.
We had the pleasure of meeting Khalid after his show, him taking the time to meet some of his Fans, many bearing handmade gifts and letters to him, which he looked genuinely appreciative to receive, full of hugs.
The nominee for Best New Artist at the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, tells me he is devastated by the loss of his beloved suit, but perhaps he will retire it as a pyjama. But this isn’t an invitation to snooze… check out some of Khalid‘s Music below:
