Billie Eilish will perform live ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ gigs at Glastonbury in 2022.
U.S. singer-songwriter Billie Eilish has been booked as the headliner for the 2022 edition of England’s Glastonbury Festival.
The festival was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that the incredible @billieeilish will headline the Pyramid on Friday at next year’s Glastonbury Festival, becoming our youngest solo headliner ever,” festival representative Emily Eavis tweeted Monday. “This feels like the ideal way to welcome us back, and I can’t wait!”
Last month, the 19-year-old Grammy winner made headlines for her stunning entrance at the Met Gala in New York City in a pink ballgown. She was also a presenter at the MTV Video Music Awards and performed at the Global Citizen Live concert.
Danny Elfman, the composer, announced on Friday that Eilish will star in a live stage adaptation of Tim Burton’s cartoon masterpiece The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Elfman wrote on Twitter, “It’s my joy to announce that special guest star @billieeilish will be joining the nightmare gang to sing Sally for our upcoming Nightmare Before Christmas events at the Banc of California Stadium.”
