Halsey was also due to perform at Hong Kong’s now cancelled Clockenflap music festival. It was originally scheduled from Nov 22 to 24 but was canned due to the escalating political tensions in the city.
Halsey, who performed in Singapore at The Star Theatre in 2018 and at the Singapore Grand Prix in 2016, is known for solo hits such as Bad At Love (2017), Without Me (2018) and Colors (2015). She also sang on hits with music stars, including on American electronic dance music duo The Chainsmokers’ Closer (2016), K-pop stars BTS’ Boy With Luv (2019) and on Eastside (2018) with American R&B singer Khalid and producer Benny Blanco.
She has released two albums – Badlands (2015) and Hopeless Fountain Kingdom (2017).
