The ‘Eyes Open’ singer brought pyrotechnics and incredible vocals to her Saturday set.
Halsey’s Gov Ball set on June 2 took place before sundown, but by the time she came out (at 6:52 PM) a more than sizable crowd had gathered. To kick things off, an enormous white curtain that covered the whole stage was dramatically ripped away, and the pop singer launched into an energetic performance of “Eyes Closed.”
Though she had just one backup dancer, Halsey managed to fill the stage with her strong voice, and by strutting around in a red bikini and iridescent cargo pants. A staircase on stage flickered with light in time with the beat, and periodically, pyrotechnics and smoke cannon jets came into play, elevating the otherwise minimalist set. During “Castle,” orange lights glowed behind the smoke, making it look like the whole stage was aflame.
Halsey also gave her LGBTQ friends and fans a shout-out before performing the Lauren Jauregui-assisted hit “Strangers.”
