The pop star showed up at the band’s show in Mexico City to sing along to songs like “Jersey’ and let her inner scene kid thrive.
You can check out the clips she posted to Instagram below.
Halsey also recently relived her scene days by sharing a photo of her as a child, sporting an Evanescence shirt and playing the violin.
“so much to unpack here. the evanescence shirt. the hot topic pants. the look of determination. the Costco glasses. the secondhand violin that got me into music. this post is a whirlwind,” she wrote.

Honestly, we can relate to this. Also, we love seeing the throwbacks of Halsey before she was a huge international star.
She’s previously defended her emo upringing with her love of My Chemical Romance and talked about her love of bands like blink-182, Taking Back Sunday and Fall Out Boy. She even cites those groups as influences behind her song “11 Minutes” with YUNGBLUD and Travis Barker. She’s also bragged about getting to see Bring Me The Horizon when she was just 14 years old.
“I grew up on the Warped Tour scene and I had my ears stretched like an inch wide, I was all over Myspace,” Halsey said. “I was like, not even a scene kid, like a hardcore kid.”
So this only proves once a scene kid, always a scene kid, and we’re proud of it.
Forever The Sickest Kids, Set It Off, Every Avenue, Four Year Strong and Emo Nite will appear as special guests. Grayscale, Oh, Weatherly, Jetty Bones, Ashland, Shortly, Worriers and World’s Greatest Dad are also on the tour, having been announced most recently.
