Khalid returns home for a spirited El Paso show

Sergio Muñoz
Khalid performs for a sold out crowd in the first of his two hometown shows at the Don Haskins Center on Friday, Sept. 14.

At the first of two 915 Hometown shows, El Paso singer-songwriter Khalid proved that his love for the Bordertown is beyond compare — even though he’s traveled around the world by now.

“I’ve traveled all over the world and they love the 915,” Khalid said. “But El Paso is by far the best and loudest city of them all.”

The show, which felt much more like a gig by a seasoned professional on a major label, featured the same “Scenic Drive 915” sign that was debuted at the 2018 Teen Choice Awards.

The night came with a few surprises, as Khalid brought along with him Billie Eilish and Atlanta R&B singer 6LACK. After performing “lovely” with Khalid, Eilish sang her hit single “Ocean Eyes.” 6LACK came out singing his own hit “Prblms” and later performed with Khalid a new track of his new album East Atlanta Love Letter called “Seasons.”

In addition to debuting two new songs and performing his recently released “Better,” Khalid also performed older hits such as “Location,” “Coaster,” and “Young, Dumb & Broke.”

Toward the end of the show, Khalid said his goodbyes, reminding the audience once again of his love for El Paso before the music stopped playing and the lights came up.

Stay tuned for our full review of Khalid’s 915 Hometown shows in this week’s issue of The Prospector.
