Disney+ Announces Billie Eilish Concert Special​

Everything you need to know about Billie Eilish's concert on Disney+.

On Thursday, Disney+ announced Happier than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles, a Billie Eilish "cinematic concert experience."

According to the press release, the pretaped concert takes place at the iconic Hollywood Bowl and features the singer belting out every song off of the pop star's new album Happier than Ever.

"Disney is incredibly iconic, so to collaborate on something like this is a huge honor," said artist Billie Eilish. "To be able to present my album in this way and dedicate it to the city that I love and grew up in is so exciting to me. I hope you love it," Eilish said of the concert.

Directing the concert is veteran director Robert Rodriguez (Desperado and From Dusk Til Dawn) and Oscar-winning animator Patrick Osbourne. The concert will also have cinematic elements like animation to help tell the story.

"We are all huge admirers of Billie and Finneas here in our household. They are such impressive, world class talents that it's a real honor to work with them on this film. The way the narrative story and animated pieces weave through her incredible concert performance, makes this a spectacular event that is truly unique," Rodriguez said.

Happier than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles will be Eilish's debut on the Disney streaming service, and Disney executives are equally enthused.

In a statement, Disney+ and ESPN+ president Michael Paull said:

"Billie has captivated fans around the world with her soulful voice and raw, honest lyrics, and we are proud to bring this incredibly cinematic and unique concert experience to Disney+."

Gary Marsh, the president and chief creative officer of Disney Branded Television agrees and said:

"Billie's musical evolution, coupled with her singular vision in crafting this special, establishes her as one of this generation's premiere artists and storytellers. She delivers a concert experience like no other!"

The concert and album come off the heels of Eilish's whirlwind of a year that culminated in seven wins at the 2021 Grammy awards for her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?.

In addition to performances from Eilish the concert will include "FINNEAS, the Los Angeles Children's Chorus, the Los Angeles Philharmonic conducted by Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel, and world renowned Brazilian guitarist, Romero Lubambo, with Orchestra Arrangements by David Campbell."

Happier than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles will begin streaming September 3 on Disney+.
