Billie Eilish announces dates for her ‘Happier Than Ever’ world tour

Pop-icon, Billie Eilish, has announced the tour dates for her ‘Happier Than Ever’ world tour.

To support the release of her sophomore album, Happier Than Ever, the multi-award-winning artist has announced that her world tour will be taking her across North America and Europe.

Comprised of 50 shows across two legs (with 32 of those being in North America), the tour will begin in New Orleans on February 3, 2022 and will conclude on July 2, 2022 in Zurich, Switzerland.

As of now, there has not been any news regarding if the tour will cover Asia, Africa, Australia or South America.

Fans who are lucky enough to be in New York City or Los Angeles will have the chance to see their idol multiple times with Eilish playing in Madison Square Garden and the Forum from February 18 to 19 and April 6 to 9 respectively.

However, in order to snag tickets, fans will need to act quick. According to Eilish’s Twitter, apart from “A Verified Fan pre-sale” which launched yesterday pacific time (PT), pre-sale tickets will be made available to the public between 12:00 pm and 10:00 pm PT on Wednesday, May 26.

Afterwards, any remaining tickets will go on sale on “Friday, May 28 (12:00pm local in North America … [and] 10:00am in the UK and Europe)”.

As well as using it as a chance to celebrate her music, Eilish is also set to use the tour as an opportunity to tackle social issues such as climate change and gender equality.

According to Billboard, the ‘Happier Than Ever‘ tour will see Eilish working with Reverb and other environmental organisations (many of which are women-led) to ensure that the tour is sustainable, both for the climate and the immediate environment.

It’s another huge step in the unstoppable career of Eilish. Her previous single, Your Power, debuted at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 while bolstering over 100 million streams during its first two weeks of being released.

Apart from winning two Grammy’s at this year’s awards, the 19-year-old also had her documentary, The World’s A Little Blurry, released on Apple TV+ to universal acclaim.
