Not happy at all: Billie Eilish fans hit out at seating arrangement


‘I came to see Billie Eilish, but all I could see was an ant,’ says concert goer.

PETALING JAYA: Fans of Billie Eilish have taken to social media to criticise the organisers of the singer’s “Happier Than Ever, The World Tour” concert here last night over the poor seating arrangement at Stadium Bukit Jalil.

The fans, some of whom paid as much as RM508 for a ticket, did not mince their words, saying they could barely see the international superstar on stage.

A concert-goer, who identified herself as Aimy, said only a handful of people were allowed to watch the singer up close in the standing room area.

Tickets for the standing room area were priced at RM598.

“I came to see Billie Eilish, all I could see was an ant,” she told FMT.

Meanwhile, those on social media also said the sound system was of low quality and did not meet their expectations for a concert of this nature.

Concert-goer Rahmat Mohammad Did, who is also a representative of Music Addicts Malaysia, said this was because those seated were about “half a km” from the stage.

“There is no way the acoustics would allow the sound to go that far. That’s insane,” he told FMT.

He also questioned why the organisers had chosen a stadium for a concert, saying that overseas performances were held in arenas.

“The tour started in March. They had ample time to think about a proper venue and yet they chose a stadium.

“We don’t have big crowds but we want to follow what people are doing overseas and yet we do not understand the basics of acoustics. It’s embarrassing,” he said.

Eilish will be continuing her tour in Singapore on Sunday. - FMT
