Billie Eilish’s ‘Happier Than Ever’ tops this week’s online shows
With her tour scuttled until next year, Billie Eilish has settled into an empty Hollywood Bowl for “Happier Than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles,” which debuts Friday, September 3 on Disney +. The elegant 65-minute show features Eilish performing all the songs from her chart-topping new album “Happier Than Ever”, accompanied on some by her brother Finneas and drummer Andrew Marshall on some tracks, and others by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, Los Angeles Children’s Choir and the like – with animated footage because it’s, well, Disney.
