Billie Eilish has temporarily cancelled 11 of her Where Do We Go? tour dates in the US due to Coronavirus.

Billie Eilish has postponed all of her March tour dates following concerns over the recent, worldwide Coronavirus outbreak.

Earlier this week (Mar 9), Billie Eilish began her highly-anticipated Where Do We Go? tour. The initial concerts have been met with widespread praise from fans and critics alike. Not only does Billie perform over 20 of her most popular songs (including 'bad guy' and 'ilomilo'.), but she also floats above the stage (!) and calls out slut-shaming with a powerful video interlude.
