Billie Eilish announces 2020 UK tour dates

Hold onto your hats, Billie Eilish is coming back to the UK next summer. Although those rumours that she steals hats were never proven, or even discussed before I made them up about three seconds ago, and I don’t think you should go around repeating them. Shame on you.

And you shouldn’t be saying things like that about her, which are absolutely not true, because she’s a good person out there doing good things.

For example, fans attending the shows will be encouraged to bring their own refillable water bottles, rather than buying disposable plastic bottles at the venues. How will that work? She’s going to set up water fountains. She’s also banning plastic straws and at each concert there will be a Billie Eilish Eco-Village, offering advice on how to be less of a dick to the planet.

This all ties in with her recent ‘All The Good Girls Go To Hell’ video, which delivered a stark message calling for action on climate change. That’s the sort of thing young people are doing these days, don’t you know, while all the old folks sit around worrying that the kids caring about stuff might be bad for their profits. Old people are the worst. By which I mean anyone over 35. In case you wondered.

Anyway, tickets for these shows go on general sale on 4 Oct. Here are the dates:

21 Jul: Manchester Arena
22 Jul: Manchester Arena
24 Jul: Birmingham Arena
26 Jul: London, O2 Arena
27 Jul: London, O2 Arena
