Billie Eilish kicks off her next world tour in February 2022.

Billie Eilish shared news Friday that will make her fans happier than ever: The Grammy-winning Gen Z sensation will play North American and European arenas come early 2022.

Eilish, who was forced to call off her 2020 arena tour after three dates due to the coronavirus pandemic, will kick off her “Happier Than Ever, The World Tour” at New Orleans’ Smoothie King Center on Feb. 3, 2022, hitting major North American markets before wrapping with three shows at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., on April 6, 8 and 9, 2022.

Besides the Forum, Eilish’s only other currently announced multi-show run will take place at New York’s Madison Square Garden, where she’ll perform on Feb. 18 and 19. Other noteworthy stops on her itinerary include Atlanta’s State Farm Arena (Feb. 5), Chicago’s United Center (March 14), Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena (March 25) and San Francisco’s Chase Center (March 29).

From June 3 to July 2, Eilish will play European markets including London, Paris, Berlin and Amsterdam.

Tickets for Eilish’s dates go on sale on May 28, following a Verified Fan presale, which fans can register for until May 23 at 11:59 p.m. PT.

Eilish confirmed she will continue her partnership with sustainability organization REVERB, and a press release noted that the tour will be carbon-positive.

With her announcement, Eilish joins a list of A-list performers, including Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Kenny Chesney, Roger Waters and Bad Bunny who are waiting to stage full-fledged arena or stadium tours until 2022. 

Of course, Eilish fans across America will have the opportunity to see her perform before 2022. The star has been announced as the headliner for four festivals between August and October: Las Vegas’ Life Is Beautiful, Delaware’s Firefly, New York’s Governors Ball and, just yesterday, Austin City Limits in Austin, Texas.

The dates see Eilish seeking to regain momentum following the abrupt postponement, then cancellation of her sold-out 2020 arena tour due to the pandemic. Eilish began the sold-out tour at Miami’s American Airlines Arena on March 9, 2020, and subsequently logged dates at Orlando’s Amway Center and PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C. The two most recent Eilish performances for which Pollstar has box office data, sold-out October 2019 arena plays at Dallas’ American Airlines Center and Houston’s Toyota Center, each grossed $1.23 million.

In January 2020, Eilish swept the Big Four awards at the Grammys, taking home Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist on the strength of her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? Her anticipated follow-up, Happier Than Ever, arrives July 30.

Eilish’s agent, Wasserman Music senior vice president Sara Bollwinkel, appeared on the 2021 edition of Pollstar‘s Impact 50, revealed earlier this month.

Eilish “misses her fan in a major way,” Bollwinkel said, hinting that the performer’s future live shows are “going to be bigger and better than ever.”
