Finneas has announced details of his first ever headline show in the UK.

The producer and brother of Billie Eilish will headline London’s Electric Ballroom on August 30 for a special “one night only” show.

Since releasing his debut album ‘Optimist’ in late 2021, Finneas has been relatively quiet, though returned last year with new single ‘Naked’.

He also wrote songs with Eilish for the soundtrack to Disney’s new film ‘Turning Red‘. The brother-sister duo were approached by the makers of the film to write songs for the fictional boyband 4*Town that protagonist Meilin “Mei” Lee and her friends are obsessed with.

Tickets for the new Electric Ballroom gig go on sale on Friday (August 4) at 10am BST, and you can buy yours here.

In Rolling Stone‘s three-star review of Finneas’ debut album, writer Jon Dolan said: “Finneas’s full-length debut shows just how grand his songwriterly ambitions can get, suggesting a tunesmith who’d rather create his generation’s ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’ or pen the next Dear Evan Hansen than burnish his resume as a Top 40 song doctor.

“Album opener ‘A Concert Six Months From Now’ is his clever entrant into the canon of Covid-themed pop, going from spare acoustic sketch to stagey sturm and drang as the hopeful act of buying a ticket to a concert in 2022 becomes a metaphor for his against-the-odds dream of saving a botched romance. ‘The Kids Are All Dying’ is equally sweeping, proudly offering a melodic debt to Elton John and making ample space for Finneas to unfurl an athletic falsetto as he wonders about whether it’s right to sing about love and sex in an age of global warming and school shootings.”
