Numerous videos emerged on TikTok showing audience members passing out in the standing pen area of the National Stadium during Billie Eilish’s concert on 21 August.
In one video, a fan had fainted during the concert, prompting those nearby shouting “HELP! HELP!” and trying to get the attention of Eilish.
The singer, who was in the middle of a song, stopped halfway and immediately called for security to attend to the fan who fainted.
Concert-goers were allegedly squeezed together, couldn’t breathe
Netizens who were at the concert, pointed out that there were in fact several fans passing out the National Stadium concert.
One netizen claimed that about 9 people fainted near the barricades, with another netizen saying that security was carrying fainted audience members from the venue during “almost every song”.
Paramedics also struggled to reach the victims, as they had to squeeze through the massive, massive crowd to get to those who had fainted.
Netizens said that the audience members had fainted due to everyone being squeezed tightly together, on top of the heat, and they had not much room left to breathe.
