Sivan’s show did not start until 7.30pm that night but that did not stop the crowds from gathering outside the venue for their chance to see the former Carmel School student before his performance.

The 20-year-old, named GQ Magazine’s 2015 Breakthrough Solo Artist, was joined on stage by his brother and DJ Tyde Levi at the show. It was his first Australian performance.

Sivan’s first EP, TRXYE, topped iTunes charts in 66 countries and made its debut at number five on the US Billboard album charts.
