17 year old Billie Eilish made her Glastonbury debut yesterday and gave the crowd a performnace that will not be forgotten in a hurry. She gave a performance so unique that NME described her as a ‘once-in-a-generation star’ after the performance.
Billie Eilish‘s fans cut across age and gender and generations. At her age, her songs pack a lot of depth and take on issues of loneliness, depression and even suicides, but at her performance at the popular UK music festival, was a life-affirming one that got to the audience.
She performed in front of 40, 000 music fans at the same time that Miley Cyrus was performing at the festival in a different venue and it just goes to show how influential she is and how much her reputation continues to grow daily.
She started her set with “Bad Guy” and fans were alive to this, singing along, jumping and generally very excited about it in a performance that had Finneas, Billie‘s brother join her on Keyboards.
Billie Eilish was alive and spontaneous throughout the set, at one point, she even asked the audience to put away their phones saying: ““There’s no other time in the history of the world where all of us will have this experience, at this time, at this moment, at this age. We’ll never get this moment back.”
She’s still young and there’s still a long way to go, but Billie Eilish is already an enigma, fans are warming up to her and her performance at Glastonbury will not be forgotten by those present anytime soon. Watch the video below
