An absolutely amazing experience. I feel so fortunate to have attended Halsey’s free concert. Not only is it amazing that the entire thing was free, but it was also an incredibly unique concert style that I have never seen repeated. The venue was fantastic, and Halsey herself was phenomenal. I wish I could replay this night over and over. Thank you to Halsey and the Armory for putting on an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime event.

The singer-songwriter, who has also been open about her bisexuality, made headlines with her groundbreaking performance alongside dancer Jade Chynoweth on the talent show’s finale last year. Having hit back at the homophobic backlash of the time, she has now open up about threats she received.

So the main reasons that Halsey might be popular include her music, her lyrics, her identities, her intelligence, and the fact that people are invested in who she is as a person and what she believes in. There are probably many other reasons, as well. Yet these are probably the main ones. Halsey is definitely very talented and deserves all of her popularity and more.

It was one thing for Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, a kid from New Jersey, to have 14,000 friends on MySpace at age 14 and 16,000 subscribers on YouTube at 18. But it’s quite another for Halsey, Ms. Frangipane’s pop-star alter ego, to have taken that innate 21st-century talent for self-presentation — not to mention songwriting — from her bedroom to arena stages in a mere year since signing with a record label.

On Sunday, Sept. 29 “Bad At Love” singer Halsey released a new music video for “Clementine” on her 25th birthday, and the premiere is a present to her fans. The singer and her brother Sevian dance in front of an aquarium exhibit in the music video, both wearing matching white jumpsuits printed with a clementine logo and Converse sneakers. Both siblings also have orange glitter makeup on for the routine.

The musician’s big break came in 2014 when Frangipane uploaded the song Ghost” to her SoundCloud page. The track soon became popular online and caught the attention of a number of interested labels. The singer subsequently signed with Astralwerks who issued her debut EP Room 93” in October that year. Introducing the singer’s emotive vocal delivery and songwriting, reminiscent of British singer Ellie Goulding, the record catapulted Frangipane to online notoriety. Featuring the single Ghost”, the EP also spawned four accompanying videos, garnering significant attention on music video platforms.

Radio smashes “Bad at Love” and “Without Me” also made her short but sweet setlist, as did the feminist rager ” Nightmare” And to cap it off, Halsey performed ” Graveyard ” — a new single from her forthcoming album, Manic — for the first time, giving the vulnerable breakup song a jolt of energy onstage.

Yet every date on that spring 2015 run sold out in less than 30 minutes, and Halsey soon graduated to an arena tour, opening this summer for the million-selling rock band Imagine Dragons and often packing the front rows despite being first on the three-act bill.

Halsey is typically oppositional about the single’s prospects. Everyone thinks it’s going to be a cultural revolution, but I don’t think it’s that good,” she said plainly. As for Ghost,” which Astralwerks may yet push to pop radio, I’m so over that song,” she said, and it only made the album as one of her few concessions to the label.

At the tender age of 18 Ashley Frangipane, who made an anagram of her first name to form her stage name Halsey, began performing in clubs to pay her rent. She had been diagnosed with bi-polar disease just a year before and was struggling financially to keep herself afloat. She also posted videos of herself performing covers of big hits on YouTube, famously her rendition of Taylor Swift‘s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’. She recorded her first original song ‘Ghost’ in 2014 and got herself a record deal with Astralwerks. Her debut EP ‘Room 93’ was released soon after and she embarked on a tour with indie band The Kooks. The following year she supported Imagine Dragons on their Smoke + Mirrors tour and recorded her debut full-length album ‘Badlands’. Her second album, ‘Hopeless Fountain Kingdom’, was released in 2017, with its lead single ‘Now Or Never’ reaching number eleven in the mainstream Billboard Charts.

The foundation, after all, was hers. In March, Halsey had her industry coming-out party at the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Tex. But at an event all about manufacturing the appearance of buzz, Halsey’s needed no fluffing: Amid the label types, teenage girls stood rapt at the front of a small stage, many of them holding up cellphones and beaming the performance via video chat to tearful friends at home.


In addition to the song’s official music video , Haley released a time-lapse video for the song, in which she paints a large self-portrait. On the 28th of February 2020, we will have the pleasure to welcome Halsey for the first time in the Verti Music Hall in Berlin.

Halsey rings in her 25th birthday like a true pop star, giving fans what they ultimately want: more music. Halsey performed it live for the first time at the iHeartRadio Music Festival 2019.

This show was my 4th time seeing Halsey perform live in Minnesota, but there was something truly special about this go around specifically. Not only did Halsey herself KILL it, per usual, but the way the crowd responded to her was otherworldly. While I’ve seen Halsey in both big venues and small, this medium sized event was somehow the most massive AND most intimate thing ever. She’s a powerhouse through and through and genuinely cares about her fans.

Sharing is caring!
