Muse, The Killers and Weezer bring down the house at iHeartRadio ALTer Ego… but Bishop Briggs steals the show

Being the only girl on the bill wasn’t the only thing that made her stand out.

Bishop Briggs stole the show at an epic iHeartRadio ALTer Ego in LA on Saturday night, more than holding her own against heavyweights Muse and The Killers.

The jam-packed line-up at barely stopped for a breath as Twenty One Pilots, The Revivalists, Rise Against and Weezer pumped out crowd pleasers to a delighted and energetic audience at The Forum.

‘I’m the woman on this lineup,’ the 26-year-old Briggs told the group, prompting a quick collective mental check of the line-up followed by screams of appreciation.

‘There was the Women’s March today,’ she declared, getting emotional for a moment, ‘and I just want to thank iHeart and 98.7 for representing female musicians.

The Brit, totally owning a new buzzcut hairdo and rocking a pink tracksuit, belted her way through The Way I Do,’ breathing with relief that ‘the first song is always the worst’ at the end.

Whatever nerves she was feeling she certainly wasn’t showing it, even when her band hit a technical snafu and the crowd bellowed for her just to sing a cappella, which she didn’t have to in the end but certainly had the power to.

By the time she finished with her River anthem, everyone was on their feet and headbanging along with her.  

‘Oh my gosh well this is my first time ever being on ALTer Ego, it’s so surreal,’ she said on the red carpet before the show. ‘I’m just fangirling while being here. I just happen to be performing, but I would be here regardless, so I’m really excited.

‘I think it’s always exciting when its a concert with multiple artists one one night and the sets are shorter, it kind of makes it exciting,’ she added. ‘There’s a pressure on the artist to give the best show that they can give.’
