If the name Troye Sivan doesn't strike an immediate chord, you're not alone. Honestly, after a thorough Google search, we're still not 100 percent sure.
The 22-year-old Aussie first made waves as a YouTube personality (because that's a thing) and as baby Wolverine in the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It wasn't until he gained some popularity online and in Australian talent competitions that he signed to a major Australian label. Time named Sivan as one of the "25 Most Influential Teens of 2014," a category he shares with Sasha and Malia Obama and Kendall and Kylie Jenner. This year will see the release of his sophomore record, Bloom (Aug. 31) and a headlining North American tour.
The Bloom tour will kick off in Irving, Texas, in September and will wrap in Vancouver. Sivan will do his thing at the Fox Theater on Oct. 14 with special guests Kim Petras and Carlie Hanson.
Tickets for his Fox Theatre performance go on sale Friday, June 8 at noon and start at $29.50. Tickets can be purchased here.
