Billie Eilish Stops Her Concert To Get One Of Her Fans An Inhaler
| Last updated
This is the moment Billie Eilish stopped her Atlanta gig to make sure one of her fans was ok and to ask for an inhaler:
The 20-year-old musician can be seen on the catwalk part of the stage at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, when she spotted the concertgoer having a bad time.
According to reports, the fan had got caught in a pit close to the front of the stage and they appeared to need medical assistance.
With little hesitation, Billie stopped the gig to ask her fan: "Do you need an inhaler?"
She then went on to look around the venue and ask: "Do we have an inhaler? Can we just grab one?"
As the venue's security approached the fan, Billie continued to direct them on what to do, saying: "Give her some time... don't crowd."
Reports suggest that the singer went on to say: "I wait for people to be OK before I keep going," with some people believing that to be a reference to Travis Scott's performance at Astroworld Festival.
The 30-year-old rapper was on stage at the festival in November, in Houston, Texas, where ten people died and many were left injured during a crowd crush.
Replying to the video of Billie Eilish, one person wrote: "Travis Scott should learn something from this," while another commented: "Travis Scott should take notes."
Some didn't think what she said was a slam at Travis, with one explaining: "She’s been stopping shows for years. Nothing [about] travis or Astroworld came out of her mouth. Stop dragging Billie when she’s the one who did the right thing."
However, others defended the Astroworld rapper with one writing: "She performed in front of a small ass crowd so it’s easier to hear an see everyone," they went on: "Travis performed in front of at least 20000 people it’s physically impossible to keep a eye on everyone."
In his first interview since the tragedy, Scott sat down with Charlamagne Tha God and insisted that he didn’t know how bad things were in the crowd.
He explained: "I didn’t know the exact details until minutes before the press conference [after my set].
“And even at that moment you’re like, ‘Wait, what?’ People pass out, things happen at concerts, but something like that…"
He went on to add: "It’s so crazy because I’m that artist too - anytime you can hear something like that, you want to stop the show.
"You want to make sure fans get the proper attention they need. Anytime I could see anything like that, I did. I stopped it a couple times to just make sure everybody was OK. And I really just go off the fans’ energy as a collective - call and response. I just didn’t hear that.”
