The pop star is set to bring her ‘Happier Than Ever’ tour to the UK and Ireland next summer, kicking off in Belfast on June 3.

The ‘Happier Than Ever’ tour will begin with a North American leg next February, with the first show taking place in New Orleans. Before that, Eilish will headline a handful of US festivals late this year, including Las Vegas’ Life Is Beautiful, Delaware’s Firefly, New York’s Governors Ball and Austin’s Austin City Limits.
On Friday (August 6), Eilish scored her second UK Number One album with ‘Happier Than Ever’.
The US pop star has gone straight in at the top of the charts with her new record, which was released on July 30 and was previously reported to be outselling the rest of the Top 10 combined in the midweek update.
In a five-star review, NME‘s El Hunt said of the album: “Though it’s unlikely that her place among their ranks was ever in doubt anyway, ‘Happier Than Ever’ fully establishes Billie Eilish as one of her generation’s most significant pop artists – and, better still, does so without repeating a single trick from the debut that turned her life upside down.”
