Billie Eilish Pauses Concert to Aid Asthmatic Fan

Over the weekend, singer/songwriter Billie Eilish held a concert at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia as part of her “Happier Than Ever” world tour. The show was going as normal, though at one point, while looking out into the crowd, she noticed someone who seemed to be in distress.

“Do you need an inhaler?” she asked a young woman who seemed to be experiencing an asthma attack. Turning to the stage crew, she asked “Do we have an inhaler? Can we just grab one?”

The stage crew quickly arrived with inhaler in hand and gave it to the fan, while Eilish kept the crowd calm. “It’s OK, you got one. Guys, give it some time. Don’t crowd,” she said while assuring the rest of the crowd everything was okay.

“We’re taking care of our people, hold on. I wait for people to be OK until I keep going,” she said, getting assurance the fan was okay before resuming the show.

That last comment, whether intentionally or otherwise, is being perceived as many as an indirect stab at rapper Travis Scott, who is still under legal investigation for the crowd crush deaths and injuries that occurred during his Astroworld performance back in November. Since that incident, performers have been attempting to be more conscious of the health of their fans at concerts, with one example being SZA pausing a show last month after a fan passed out to get them medical care.
