The pop star began the run of shows in Miami on March 10, but it was then announced that the month’s remaining shows were being postponed, after earlier reports suggested all Live Nation tours could be cancelled. The ‘Where Do We Go’ tour is being promoted by Live Nation.
Now, the April shows on the tour have officially been postponed and “are actively being rescheduled.”
A statement on Eilish’s official Twitter account said: “Following last week’s announcement and in light of the ongoing CDC restrictions and guidelines, all of Billie’s remaining ‘WHERE DO WE GO’ North American tour dates are actively being rescheduled & will be announced soon. All tickets will be honored for the new tour dates.”

At the opening date of the ‘Where Do We Go?’ world tour in Miami, the singer delivered a powerful message about body shaming in a video aired during the interlude. Narrating the visuals — which present Eilish wearing a hoodie before she then strips off to her bra and sinks into water — she called out those who have body-shamed her, asking: “The body I was born with – is it not what you wanted?
“If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I’m a slut. Though you’ve never seen my body, you still judge it and judge me for it. Why?”
Eilish is the latest musician to postpone or cancel tour dates over the coronavirus outbreak. Artists including Avril Lavigne, The Who, Green Day, Pearl Jam, My Chemical Romance, Madonna and Foals have all cancelled or postponed upcoming shows in the last few days due to the disease.
