In a surprise twist for the music and concert scene, Billie Eilish has announced that she will be heading to Manila really soon — this coming August 13 at the Mall of Asia Arena to be exact. This marks the first time that the artist will grace and visit the country to hold her own concert. Manila will also be the first stop for The Billie Eilish “Happier Than Ever” World Tour.

The announcement was made on Thursday, June 23 by both Eilish herself on her Instagram account and by Live Nation Philippines, the concert promoter for her Manila leg of the tour. This came to the surprise of fans of the artist since there will only be a little over a month before Billie Eilish makes her way to Manila. This is in comparison to other international artists such as Justin Bieber and KPop artists such as Red Velvet who have a leeway of a couple of months before their arrival.
