Billie Eilish is going on her Happier Than Ever worldwide tour after canceling her “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” tour due to coronavirus in 2020, according to Variety. She comes to Los Angeles in April 2022 and tickets are already sold out on her website.

Her new album shows a new side of her that she has only recently begun to show. Eilish used to wear baggy and more casual clothes, even to award shows; this became her signature style. She later revealed that she dressed with clothes that were not fitted to try and stray from fans body-shaming her, according to PopSugar.

In her grown confidence, she has begun to dress in more fitted clothing. Her new style was revealed in her Vogue cover in a corset top. She also wore a very elegant dress inspired by Marilyn Monroe to the Met Gala. 

Pitbull:

Pitbull is also on his “I Feel Good” tour and is touring with his special guest Iggy Azalea after a two-year pause. His popularity has spiked recently due to many of his songs resurfacing on TikTok.
