Billie Eilish has announced a world tour in support of her new album, Hit Me Hard and Soft, out May 17. This will be Eilish’s third studio album, which her team calls her most daring body of work to date. The album was written and produced with the singer’s brother, Finneas.

The tour kicks off in Canada on Sept. 20, with the first show in Québec City. Other Canadian locations on the tour are Toronto and Vancouver. The Canada and U.S. shows run until Dec. 17, with the final stop on the Canada-U.S. leg being Los Angeles.

Eilish restarts the tour in Australia in February 2025. In April 2025, the final leg of the tour kicks off in Europe, ending in Dublin on July 27, 2025.

Vancouver is the closest Canadian option for Calgarians, with that show is scheduled for Dec. 3, 2024. Other shows relatively near to Calgary are Denver on Nov. 19 and 20, Seattle on Dec. 5 and 6 or Portland on Dec. 8.

Eilish is prioritizing sustainability on this tour, continuing her partnership with environmental non-profit, reverb. The partnership aims to make a climate-positive tour, eliminating more greenhouse gas emissions than it creates.

This partnership also extends to the production and distribution of Eilish’s new album, using eco-friendly and recycled materials for the vinyl editions. Eilish will be releasing eight variants of vinyl, all containing the same track-listing.

According to Eilish’s website, “the standard black variant is made from 100% recycled black vinyl. The remaining 7 colored vinyl will be made from ECO-MIX or BioVinyl. The former is created using 100% recycled compound made of leftovers from any color which cannot otherwise be used. These pieces are recycled and re-used for production of future discs; therefore, every disc will be unique and look different from the last.” BioVinyl helps reduce carbon emissions by 90% as opposed to virgin vinyl by using non-fossil fuel materials.

Tour merchandise also falls under Eilish’s eco-friendly expectations, with the clothing being made from recycled materials with non-toxic dyes and water-based inks.

Presale runs April 30-May 1. Tickets go on sale to the general public May 3.
