Don’t be fooled by his skinny frame and elvish good looks — South African-born Australian singer-songwriter-actor Troye Sivan packs smooth vocals that are at once soulful and soothing. First spotted doing song covers on YouTube, Troye has since received a Golden Globe nomination for his song Revelation in coming-of-age film Boy Erased (2018). Set to perform his latest album Bloom, concertgoers can expect hits such as My My My!, Dance To This and Animal, but we’re hoping that the 23-year-old performs favourites including Youth and Wild.
Tickets cost upwards of $98.
