Billie Eilish in Concert at PPG Paints Arena (Tues., 2/8/22)

When Billie Eilish hit it big on the national scene in 2019 with her first studio album, When We Fall Asleep Where Do We Go, it shinned the spotlight on a very interesting person. She spoke about how her brother Finneas is a strong collaborator with her on her music. And that she also has Tourette syndrome, synesthesia, and had experienced depression and even contemplated suicide at one point. Luckily she has held up during her personal trials and continued to create hit songs like “Bad Guy” with it’s electro-pop beats and strong chorus hook. The song reached the no. 1 spot on the Billboard 100. Four other songs from the album reached the top ten on the singles chart. Eilish has garnered an impressive amount of award hardware including seven Grammys. Her follow-up 2021 album, Happier than Ever, picked up right where the previous one left off, reaching number one in 25 countries and will possibly be nominated for Grammys. The theme song for the James Bond film, No Time to Die, was co-written and performed by Eilish too. Currently she has the golden touch and you can catch her at PPG Paints Arena. Special guest is Willow. 1001 Fifth Ave., Uptown. (R.H.)
