Billie Eilish Announces 2020 ‘Where Do We Go?’ World Tour
Scott Legato – Billie Eilish
Despite her walking boot, Billie Eilish jumps and bounces onstage at Music MidTown on Sunday, September 15 in Atlanta, Ga.
Billie Eilish announced an expansive 2020 world tour on Friday, including a North American arena tour.
The 17-year-old pop sensation’s 2020 itinerary, titled the “Where Do We Go?” world tour and produced by Live Nation, begins with a 22-date North American leg in March and April. The string kicks off at Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena on March 9, and concludes April 11 at Vancouver’s Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena.
Along the way, Eilish will hit some of the continent’s premier arenas, including New York City’s Madison Square Garden (March 15) and Barclays Center (March 20), Chicago’s United Center (March 24), San Francisco’s new Chase Center (April 7) and the Los Angeles-area Forum, where she’ll play two nights (April 4-5).
Notably, Eilish’s North American leg ends April 11 – and, this year, Coachella takes place April 10-12 and April 17-19.
About a month later, Eilish will travel to Latin America for seven dates. The leg begins at Arena VFG, in Guadalajara, Mexico, on May 25, and concludes two weeks later at Bogota’s Movistar Arena on June 7, making stops at venues including Mexico City’s Palacio de los Deportes (May 27) and Sao Paolo’s Allianz Parque (May 30) in between.
Come July, Eilish will take her show to Europe, playing major venues, such as Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome (July 13) and Berlin’s Mercedes-Benz Arena (July 14), and festivals, including Lisbon’s NOS Alive (July 10) and Lollapalooza Paris (July 18). The European string concludes with two nights at London’s O2 Arena July 26-27.
The tour announcement continues the mammoth year for Eilish, who appeared on Pollstar‘s cover in March. After releasing a smattering of singles and EPs, Eilish released her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? in late March, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s albums chart and spent two other weeks atop the chart in early summer. Eilish’s inescapable single “Bad Guy” was also the song to finally supplant Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” after its record-setting 19 weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100.
On the road, Eilish has been similarly strong. On May 31, she sold 12,364 tickets and grossed $659,427 at Moda Center, in Portland, Ore., and on June 19, she sold 5,941 tickets and grossed $411,070 at New York’s Radio City Music Hall.
“There is no artist more emblematic of music in 2019 than 17-year-old wunderkind Billie Eilish,” Pollstar wrote in a review of her sold-out June 20 show at Washington, D.C.’s Anthem, which moved 6,000 tickets and grossed $302,907.
“She has that kind of connection where she’s crucial to her fans and they’re crucial to her,” Paradigm agent Sara Bollwinkel, who has represented Eilish with Tom Windish since the performer was 14, said in Pollstar‘s March cover story. “It’s a bond unlike anything I’ve seen with any other artist. She would have it no other way. I wish I had Billie when I was young.”
After a series of pre-sales, Eilish’s tour goes on sale to the general public on Oct. 4. Find a complete list of dates below.
But, before any of that, Eilish will make her Saturday Night Live debut as musical guest on the show’s season premiere tomorrow night.
