TROYE SIVAN THE BLOOM TOUR SINGAPORE

South Africa-born Australian singer-songwriter Troye Sivan  has blossomed with his second album, Bloom (2018). The lead single, My My My!, hit No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart and the record was named on several best-of-2018 lists, including by Rolling Stone and Time magazines.

AllMusic website said: "At a taut 10 tracks, Bloom is an unambiguous statement from Sivan, clear in its intent to celebrate the highs and lows of queer love through the eyes of a proud pop star in the making."
