Glass Animals Deliver Dreamy Performance Of “Heat Waves” On Billboard Music Awards

Last night, Glass Animals delivered their first-ever U.S. awards show performance, as they took the outdoor stage at Billboard Music Awards in Los Angeles to perform their global smash hit “Heat Waves” live. The band has been delivering some of the most colorful and creative live performances throughout quarantine, and last night’s did not disappoint. Featuring a pastel art sculpture by French artist Cyril Lancelin titled “pyramid pillows,” the band gave a signature, high-energy performance to a live audience of vaccinated fans. Not only was this Glass Animals’ first-ever U.S. awards show, but it was also their first live U.S. performance since their last show pre-Covid lockdown in March 2020 at Los Angeles’ iconic Troubadour.

The Billboard Music Awards performance caps a very exciting week for the band. Last Thursday, they released a collaboration with fast-rising UK popstar Bree Runway on their huge track “Space Ghost Coast To Coast,” taken from their acclaimed 2020 album Dreamland. The band also recently dropped a trippy video for the song. Not to mention, last week Glass Animals were announced as a performer on Good Morning America’s 2021 Summer Concert Series lineup—tune in on Tuesday, July 20th on ABC.

Glass Animals are gearing up for their North American “Dreamland Tour,” which sold over 130,000 tickets in just 3 days and is quickly selling out with new shows being added. The run kicks off August 30th in Lewiston, NY and takes the band across North America well into 2022. The shows add to their already sold-out UK tour dates, previously announced 2022 Red Rocks shows and confirmed festival performances at Bonnaroo, Life Is Beautiful, Firefly Festival, Outside Lands and more.
