Halsey is no stranger to music’s top charts, and this time, the American pop songstress will be coming for her first ever solo show in Singapore. As part of her Hopeless Fountain Kingdom World Tour, the 23-year-old will be taking the stage at The Star Theatre for her very own full-fledged concert on 8 August. From new earworms to jam out to, to her electrifying stage presence, here are our top five reasons why you should catch the queen of the badlands in action.
#1 She’s been gone for far too long
The last time Halsey came to Singapore was for the Singapore F1 Grand Prix back in 2016. Undoubtedly, the highly-anticipated performance was one that left many wanting more. Case in point? Here are just some of the fan tweets that perfectly summed up her epic set.

With her surefire string of groovy hits, Halsey clearly left an itch since she was last here. Now, after two long years, fans of the ‘Colours’ singer can finally get their Halsey fix – and we have no doubt that she’ll deliver the same energy and ageless appeal to everyone come 8 August.
#2 She’s got some fresh tunes
A lot has happened since Halsey last visited. In that period, she has released Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, and with it came ‘Now or Never’ and ‘Alone’. And most recently, she teamed up with producer Benny Blanco and Khalid for ‘Eastside’ – a breezy, catchy radio banger that became a chart-topper faster than you can say “she used to meet me on the Eastside” (last we checked, the song stands at #1 on Spotify’s Singapore Viral 50 playlist). We can’t wait to hear Halsey’s live rendition of it!
#3 She won’t be alone
As much as Halsey has her own stellar discography, she’s equally famous for her killer collaborations too. Just look at ‘Closer’, ‘Him & I’, and ‘The Feeling’. More than that, Halsey will be accompanied by some special guests during her tour. Kehlani will join her for the Australia and New Zealand stops, while Lauren Jauregui from Fifth Harmony will swing by on the Latin America dates. For the Asia leg, we’ll be getting Indonesian R&B artiste Nicole Zefanya aka NIKI. Powerful women supporting each other!
#4 She’s fashionably unpredictable
Halsey’s not just making waves in the entertainment scene – her unabashed hairstyles over the years have commanded an equal amount of attention too. From lusciously blonde locks to rocking a bold buzzcut, you’ll never know what to expect from Halsey.
Here’s a fun game to play: see if you can correctly predict what hairstyle this style maven will sport during her Asia dates! No peeking on her Instagram is allowed.
#5 She’s got sick tour visuals
Lights, camera, action – the concert visuals for the Hopeless Fountain Kingdom Tour look almost like a work of art. From butterflies and flowers, to fire and lightning, her tour aesthetics game is through the roof. Get ready to be treated to a multi-sensory experience transcending beyond just her breathtaking vocals.
