Billie Eilish is accepting the reality of the situation and letting fans know that her highly-anticipated tour is going on an indefinite hold amid the rising numbers of COVID-19. The singer has been waiting all year to be able to bring fans her “Where Do We Go?” tour, which was set to begin back in March just as the world was entering full coronavirus pandemic. After postponing dates and holding on to hope, Eilish is finally throwing in the towel and giving fans back their money.
The “bad guy” singer took to Instagram late Thursday night and broke the sad news to fans, after many around the world have eagerly been waiting for rescheduled dates after cancellations due to COVID-19.
“Hi guys, I wish that I could have seen you on tour this year. I’ve missed performing for you and being on stage so much I can’t even tell you,” the 18-year-old star wrote on her Instagram stories.
As she has been postponing shows all year, no refunds were yet given as Eilish and her crew were waiting on clearance to be able to perform for fans.
Unfortunately, the Grammy-winner’s dreams were dashed after another wave of COVID-19 pandemic has caused more lockdowns across the United States and the rest of the world.
“We’ve tried as many different scenarios as possible for the tour but none are possible, although I know so many of you want to hold onto your tickets and vip passes, the best thing we can do for everyone is to get the money back into your hands as soon as we can,” Eilish wrote about the refunds.
The “Where Do We Go?” tour was originally slated to kick off on March 9, 2020 in Miami, Florida at American Airlines Arena and was planned to wrap up on September 7, 2020 in Jakarta, Indonesia at the Indonesia Convention Exhibition.
Though 2020 has been a killer for concerts and singing with an audience, Eilish was able to scratch a little itch during a recent performance at the AMAs where she debuted her new single, “There I Am” in an intense showing.
