Billie Eilish postpones more tour dates amid coronavirus outbreak

Billie Eilish has postponed yet more Where Do We Go tour dates amid the current coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier this week the 18-year-old singer postponed the first leg of her North American dates due to coronavirus, stating: “It is with great sadness to announce the following North American tour dates have been postponed until further notice,” Eilish said while posting on social media while cancelling the 11 shows in March which includes dates in Philadelphia, New York, Brooklyn, Chicago, Nashville and more.

“Details on postponed dates to be announced soon. All tickets will be honoured for the new dates.”

She added: “I’m so sad to do this but we need to postpone these dates to keep everyone safe. We’ll let you know when they can be rescheduled. Please keep yourselves healthy. I love you.”

Now, as the pandemic grows and the United States begins more aggressive actions against the virus, the singer has put more live shows on ice. See the effect shows, below.

The ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease was first officially identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei in China. As of 16 March, more than 173,000 cases of COVID-19 have been officially confirmed but the actual number is thought to be much higher due to substantial under-reporting of cases.

With more than 6,600 people having died from the virus, COVID-19 has now spread into more than 150 other countries—including mainland Europe, South America and North America. Given the exponential growth in cases in countries like Italy and Spain, the WHO have now stated that Europe was the current centre of the pandemic.
