Concert halted

The “bad guy” singer, 20, is currently on her Happier than Ever world tour, which runs until the end of September. “Are you all ok?” she asked the audience, according to the BBC. “People were fainting and getting pulled out. It’s hot, I know.”

Following complaints from fans that they were “squished”, Eilish stopped the music for around three minutes and asked everyone to give each other some room. “Take a step back, give everybody some space,” she said. “If someone looks a little woozy, just tell someone… Don’t try to save feelings.” She later thanked “all the security, all the staff” at the venue, telling them: “I appreciate you.”

Eilish had reportedly asked O2 security staff to hand out water to the fans. The singer has a good reputation when it comes to crowd safety.
