Grammy award-winning artist Billie Eilish kicked off her Happier Than Ever tour on Thursday 3 February in New Orleans, Louisiana, performing to a sold-out crowd. During her second tour performance in Atlanta, Eilish stopped the show to assist a fan who had trouble breathing.
She may have shaded Travis Scott following his Astroworld tragedy saying: “I wait for people to be okay before I keep going.”
BILLIE SHADES TRAVIS SCOTT
Billie performed in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday 5 February but stopped the concert after one fan was getting “crushed” in the pit in front of the stage and has trouble breathing. According to TMZ, Eilish became aware of what has happening and instructed her team to bring an inhaler for the fan.
Eilish also seemed to take a dig at Travis Scott following his Astroworld festival tragedy.
“I wait for people to be okay before I keep going,” said Eilish.

Billie Eilish opened her Happier Than Ever tour in New Orleans, Louisiana on 3 February. Eilish, who is an animal rights activist, made Happier Ever After her second eco-friendly tour ever. The first was her Where Do We Go world tour in 2020.
Eilish partnered with REVERB, an organisation that tackles pressing environmental and social issues through concerts and music festivals. According to One Green Planet, REVERB will encourage Eilish’s fans to help climate change through the Billie Eilish Action Village that’ll be set up at every concert.
The Billie Eilish Action Village will also host BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) and woman-led environmental organisations. Concertgoers will also be encouraged to dig into the plant-based menu and switch to a plant-based diet for a month.
‘HAPPIER THAN EVER’ TOUR REVIEWS
Eilish opened the world tour with her hit song Bury a Friend from her 2019 album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? Rolling Stone reports that there was a “gloominess” to the 20-year-old during her 2019 tour, but this time around, she was “flirty, floating and dancing through the songs on her own and gyrating at the pit to get a rise out of it.”
“The pacing was masterful. For such a young artist, still at the dawn of what is likely a long career, the show was packed with already memorable songs,” wrote the publication.
