Even at the tender age of 15, Billie Eilish is preparing to take over the world.
After a momentous 2017, which included the release of her critically acclaimed debut EP dont smile at me as well as sold out headlining tours across North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, impressive national daytime and late night television appearances in the States, as well as being recently appointed as VEVO dscvr Artist To Watch in 2018 and long listed for the BBC’s Sound of 2018 (following Apple’s Up Next Artist campaign this autumn), 15-year-old Billie Eilish continues to ascend and as she sets her sights on 2018.
This month, Billie Eilish announced her forthcoming 2018 ‘WHERES MY MIND’ headlining tour across North America and Europe. Set to start on February 14th at the popular 1,000+ capacity venue Heaven (which sold out in a day), the tour will include stops in Paris, Milan, Stockholm, Berlin (amongst other European cities), then onto North American shores where Billie will be starting on the west coast, then embarking on a 17-date tour across the country. For a complete list of tour dates see below. For tickets and more information, please visit http://www.billieeilish.com
Earlier this month, Billie surprised fans with the unexpected release of the soulful bitches broken hearts via Soundcloud. The song reached #1 on HypeMachine, racked up an impressive 600k+ streams in under a week, was hailed by Pigeons & Planes who praised its “woozy blend of electric piano, vocal samples, and sparse percussion.”
Billie is most definitely the pop movement’s biggest up-and-coming star from the way she handles herself on TV and radio to her real and relatable music, Eilish is already a star and we know her second tour is only the start of what will be an epic career for her.
