Troye Sivan took his talents and his music to Shanghai, China, with his “Bloom Tour” for the second time this year, selling out the Mercedes-Benz Arena both times. The 24-year-old pop prince posted about his triumph on Instagram in his latest update directed at his 10.9 million followers, which include fellow musicians Ariana Grande and Sam Smith.
The Australian hitmaker, who began his celebrated career as a YouTuber and has since collaborated with Charli XCX, has been headlining “The Bloom Tour” around the world for the past year and a half, with only one more stop to go. After he and his band perform in Chengdu, China, Troye will be on to the next event.
Meanwhile, Troye said his current gig has been “life-changing” and “dream shattering” in his latest Instagram update. The highly energetic entertainer showed highlights of his Shanghai concert in which the crowd was fully charged — many fans held up their lit phones as massive amounts of confetti fell on them while the main act did their thing onstage.
As he headed into the arena, Troye greeted Shanghai while wearing a plain white T-shirt underneath a shimmering dark-colored jacket. He paired that part of his ensemble with dark skinny jeans, wearing his mop-top hair in its natural brunette color — as opposed to the bleached-out strands he often prefers — as he rocked out to a crowd of about 18,000. They had gathered in the popular venue — formerly known as the Shanghai World Expo Center — which is located in the vibrant city’s Pudong district located on the East Bank of the Huangpu River that runs through Shanghai.

SHANGHAI by @joachimjohnson. Genuinely one of the best nights of my life. Can’t believe I’m saying this but we sold this venue out with the same show twice in 6 months - which is a testament to the incredible work of my band and crew putting on this show every night, imo. We’ve been on the bloom tour now for a year and a half now and Chengdu coming up will be our last show - this tour and all of you guys have become like family to me. It’s been a life changing, dream shattering year and a half. thank you!! ❤️
