There are rumours around a feud between Taylor Swift and Billie Eilish.

These days, three hour concert length seems to be a common thing among touring artists like Taylor and Bruce Springsteen. During a pop-in chat with fans on the Stationhead app over the weekend, Billie was asked if her audience can expect that kind of length show from her on the upcoming Hit Me Hard and Soft tour.

Her response

“I’m not doing a three-hour show, that’s literally psychotic,” Billie said as per fan recordings during a chat with fans on the Stationhead app, per a report on People.

“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. That’s far too long.”

Billie announced the tour, which is in support of her latest album, on April 29. It will kick off in September in North America. She will also tour in Australia, Europe, the UK and Ireland.

Shade at Taylor Swift

While Taylor and Billie have maintained that they are cordial with each other, some are now convinced that a feud is brewing following her latest statement. That’s because Taylor’s Eras Tour spans an average of three hours and 15 minutes.

Taking to X, one user wrote, “I'll start out by saying I'm a Billie fan over Taylor's music & I've also been to thousand's of live concerts. More than anyone I personally know. I disagree with her statement wholeheartedly. I most Def want to see an artist i love for 3+ hours." While a second added: “That’s how long concerts should be.” “Billie Eilish’s fans most likely go to concerts without chaperones. They’re young. That’s probably why she’s not into having three-hour shows,” wrote one.
