Billie Eilish Got Emotional After This Warm Welcome To New Zealand: Watch

Fresh off a pair of high-energy Coachella sets, Billie Eilish trekked to New Zealand and Australia for a handful of shows Down Under before returning to the States for a sold out North American tour. On Tuesday (April 23), the anti-pop star landed in Auckland Airport and was surprised by a very special welcome. When she de-boarded the plane, she was greeted by New Zealand's Hātea Kapa Haka group, which treated her to a Pōwhiri + Waiata of her own haunting hit, "when the party’s over." Stunned, the 17-year-old was overcome with emotion. She covered her mouth with her hand as she watched the beautiful performance, and tears glistened in her eyes.

Watch the sentimental moment below.

 

Eilish heads back to the U.S. at the end of May and will spend the first half of the summer traversing the continent. Take a look at a full list of North American tour dates below.
