Fans went crazy for Billie Eilish pre-sale tickets.
If you stan Billie Eilish and you thought you might take off with the adrenaline rush of trying to book tickets to her 2022 Happier Than Ever tour in the pre-sale, you're certainly not the only one if the social media frenzy is anything to go by.

In just over a year, the 19-year-old singer will travel across the UK in support of her forthcoming second studio album Happier Than Ever, which is set to drop this summer two years after the release of her critically acclaimed debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?.
Naturally, Ticketmaster's servers went into meltdown for a short period this morning when UK fans attempted to purchase pre-sale tickets for the tour, and those lucky enough to get hold of them took to Twitter to share the experience - which was apparently equal parts terrifying and exciting.
Those who were familiar with the process of picking up hard-to-come-by tickets gave prompt advice to fans struggling to fulfill their dream, which just goes to show how wholesome the entire Billie fanbase is.
The Your Power singer was forced to cancel her 2020 world tour because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has only increased the fervour amongst fans.

The UK and Ireland dates kick off in Belfast's SSE Arena on June 3rd, and she will also visit Dublin, Manchester, London, Glasgow and Birmingham. The tour rounds off with shows in Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt, Cologne, Paris, Antwerp and, finally, Zurich on July 2nd.
This year, meanwhile, she's set to play a handful of festivals this Autumn, including Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas, Firefly in Delaware, The Governors' Ball in New York and Austin City Limits.
