Billie Eilish Briefly Interrupted Her London Concert. She Was Worried About Her Fans
Singer Billie Eilish briefly interrupted her show at London's O2 arena after several fans were in trouble due to the heat, BBC reports.
"Are you OK?" she asked several fans on Saturday night, at the concert.
After fans replayed they were "exhausted", Billie Eilish decided to stop the music until the pressure in front of the stage eased.
Billie Eilish told them to take a step back, and give everyone space.
Earlier, the famous American singer asked the O2 security team to distribute water to the audience.
It's Not The First Time Billie Eilish Interrupted A Concert
It's not the first time the singer has stopped a concert to check on her fans.
In February, she cut short her "Happier Than Ever" tour in Atlanta after noticing someone struggling to breathe and refused to continue until she could access an inhaler.
Later that month, Billie Eilish also cut short a show in New York's Madison Square Garden, telling fans, "If you want to sit down, you're allowed. Come on, you're fine. Sit down, breath."
People Died At The Astroworld Festival
The issue of crowd safety has been in the spotlight ever since 10 people died at the Astroworld festival in Houston last year.
Fans in the audience later criticized the emergency services' response and questioned why the organizers didn't stop the concert.
An investigation is now looking into the circumstances surrounding the tragedy.
At the O2 on Saturday night, fans took matters into their own hands. One group, after noticing a fellow concertgoer in trouble, formed a protective circle and turned on their phone lights to alert the security team.
Billie Eilish resumed her performance after three minutes, and later thanked "security and all the staff" at the arena.
According to Britannica, Billie Eilish (born December 18, 2001, Los Angeles, California, U.S.) is an American singer-songwriter who first gained recognition in 2015 for the song "Ocean Eyes" and became, in 2020, the youngest person ever to win a Grammy for album of the year.
