Billie Eilish Hits Three-Hour Concerts: ‘That’s Literally Psychotic

Billie Eilish fans should not anticipate three-hour shows in the foreseeable future. “Hit Me Hard and Soft” was the Grammy and Oscar winner’s third studio album. After its release, the singer came to the music app Stationhead to address fan questions live.

A fan asked Eilish whether she would ever do a three-hour concert like Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour or Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, and Eilish said, “I’m not doing a three-hour show, that’s psychotic.”

“Nobody wants that,” she said in recordings broadcast on X, the former Twitter. “You guys do not want it. I do not want that. I don’t like that as a fan. I’m not attempting to listen to my favorite performer in the world for three hours.

While Eilish did not mention any specific artists, some Swifties wondered whether she was mocking the “Fortnight” singer, who is presently on the European leg of her Eras Tour, which lasts more than three hours. However, Eilish has previously commended Swift and Beyoncé for their ability to deliver lengthy performances.

“I find it hard to play stadiums,” the singer of “What Was I Made For?” told the Los Angeles Times in October 2023. “Beyoncé and Taylor Swift are untouchable superstars; the fact that they can put on a show that long, and it’s filled with so many incredible moments, is amazing.”

"Billie Eilish expresses her views on three-hour concerts, deeming them 'literally psychotic' during a recent interview."

Other performers, like music luminaries Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney, have been delivering hour-long performances for years. Last year, on the Conan O’Brien, Needs A Friend podcast, the Beatles frontman even said that he “blames” Springsteen for the increasingly extensive stage lengths that musicians are required to perform nowadays, as opposed to the 1960s.

Eilish was also questioned on the Stationhead app whether she intended to play every song from Hit Me Hard and Soft on her next world tour, which begins in September and ends in July 2025. The “Lunch” singer said that she “can’t do that” since the performance would be “like a million years long” owing to the famous songs from her past albums that she intends to play.
