After her headlining set at Glastonbury, Billie Eilish appeared on The Late Late Show. Eilish spoke with host James Corden about how much things have changed since she first began performing in the U.K.
She appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden following her headlining set at Glastonbury Festival 2022 on Monday night (June 27).
In her interview, Billie described how much her career has evolved since she first performed in the UK.
Billie Eilish recounted one of her first London concerts, during which a fan waited outside to meet her. “I saw this girl and her mother standing outside and I was thinking, ‘What are they doing here?'”
“Why would they do that?” she recalled. “I remember pulling up and she looked at the car funny, and I remember thinking, ‘That’s weird.'” “Who is that?” she asked. Why would there be someone there? “I opened the door and she greeted me with a smile, looking so happy and surprised.”
Billie Eilish added, “She was the first person ever to stand in line for me.”. I gave her the biggest hug and I took a picture with her and we just held each other and it was so sweet. That moment was really special.”
In her early days of performing, Eilish used to make it a point to meet every fan who arrived at her show. With stadiums selling out and festivals selling out, it isn’t possible to meet them all. “I miss it so much,” she said.
Currently, the late-night talk show is filming in London, a city that holds special memories for the singer-songwriter since it was where she held her first-ever headlining show back in July 2017, in the 130-seat Courtyard Theatre.
Also in support of her sophomore album, Happier Than Ever, Eilish is currently wrapping up the European leg of her world tour. Later in the year, she’ll perform in Berlin, Antwerp, and Zurich before heading to Australia, New Zealand, and Asia.
