Billie Eilish says she won’t do a three-hour show for upcoming tour: “That’s literally psychotic”

Billie Eilish has said that she won’t be doing a three-hour long set when she takes to the stage on her upcoming tour.

The singer recently dropped her third album ‘Hit Me Hard and Soft’ and announced a world tour to celebrate the release, but has told fans she won’t be performing hours’ worth of material during the show.

Speaking to fans on the app StationHead for a Q&A, the artist shared her thoughts on the idea of her performing an especially lengthy concert.

“I’m not doing a three-hour show, that’s literally psychotic,” she said, according to an audio snippet shared on X.

She continued: “Nobody wants that. You guys don’t want that. I don’t want that. I don’t even want that as a fan. My favourite artist in the world, I’m not trying to hear them for three hours, you know what I mean? It’s far too long.”

While the likes of Guns N’ Roses, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen have performed infamously long shows over the years, the subject of lengthy concert running times has resurfaced as a big talking point in recent months, since Taylor Swift‘s ‘Eras’ tour is over three hours long, while Beyoncé‘s ‘Renaissance’ tour was between two and a half to three hours long.

Eilish’s thoughts were shared on X by a Swift fan account, leading some fans to speculate that she was referring to the pop star’s record-breaking tour.

It comes after the ‘Lunch’ singer responded to backlash against her recent comments on artists releasing multiple vinyl variants.

While some outlets interpreted Eilish’s comments as a dig at Swift, who is known for releasing multiple variants of her albums, the artist said she “wasn’t singling anyone out”, and reasserted that she too was guilty.

She’s not the first artist to speak out about long concerts. Last year, Paul McCartney quipped that he “blames” Springsteen for increasingly long stage times.

NME praised ‘Hit Me Hard and Soft’ as a “bold, brilliant and somewhat brighter” album in a four star review, adding: “On the US star’s third album, there are upbeat bangers and a clear vision established for her artistry in the years to come.”
