This past January, FINNEAS and Billie Eilish swept all major GRAMMY categories, including album of the year, song of the year, record of the year, and best new artist for the hit album "WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?" This past fall, FINNEAS’ solo release "Blood Harmony" drew widespread acclaim from fans and critics alike, while his recent collaboration with Billie Eilish on the new James Bond title track "No Time To Die" was hailed as a masterstroke in the genre. The OHIO Performing Arts & Concert Series will have tickets back on-sale for the evening performance starting Friday, July 24 at noon.
