At a Halsey concert you should expect the singer to finish with “New Americana,” to do her famous back contortion, to change outfits, and to conduct the audience in an a cappella sing-a-long. There’s something else you should know if you have Halsey tickets. That something is you need to behave.
During a concert at the House of Blues, Halsey scolded her audience after an attendee passed out from the push of the crowd. She chided the audience for not acting like adults and threatened to cancel the entire Halsey tour if they didn’t behave. The singer then warned that she wasn’t “f***ing around.”
A few songs later, Halsey apologized. She said she just wants everyone to enjoy the show and to do so in a safe and secure environment. It’s hard to believe that such a diminutive singer as Halsey can also be so tough. So when you see her live, have lots of fun and make sure you behave.
