Billie Eilish in Cologne: Voract shocked with allegations of abuse
Normally, the conditions are clearly regulated: the opening act heats up the hall, but as soon as the actual star of the evening enters the stage, he is quickly forgotten. It would probably have been the same with Jessie Reyez. But the 31-year-old Canadian, from Megastar Billie Eilish with after Köln was taken managed to be remembered even after their last song with a chilling story.
Shortly before the end of her set, Reyez announced that it was an extremely important, emotional topic that she now wanted to talk about. Such an important topic that she wanted everyone in the packed Lanxess Arena to Köln it understand. That’s why the singer asked a young “Billie Eilish” follower for short-term support.
Billie Eilish in Cologne: Voract Jessie Reyez shocked with frightening allegations of abuse
She may translate her story. A few years ago, if she hadn’t shared the stage with stars like Billie Eilish, Reyez reports. As a street musician, she tried to inspire people. Then she met a well-known producer. A huge opportunity, as she thought at the time. But the only thing that came from him was the backroom announcement: “If you want to be successful, you have to suck cock.”
These are terrible accusations against the music industry. And as crude as it sounds, the perfect transition to Billie Eilish. A young woman who is pretty much the opposite of what the smooth pop world embodied for many years.
Billie Eilish in Cologne: “Don’t be an asshole”
No model body, no scandals…Billie Eilish is just Billie Eilish. No more, but definitely no less, as she was able to prove in Cologne.
The woman, who already enchanted the pop world with songs like “Ocean Eyes” or “Six Feet Under” at the age of 13, bounced like a bouncy ball through the humid Lanxess Arena for almost two hours.
That is Billie Eilish:
- Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell was born on December 18, 2001 in Los Angeles
- At the age of 13 she wrote her own song with her brother Finneas
- Her first hit “Ocean Eyes” became a mega success
- Billie Eilish is currently on her “Happier Than Ever” world tour
- On Thursday (June 30, 2022) the megastar will play in Berlin
Now at 20, Billie Eilish has already released two platinum records and can afford to make her own rules for her concerts. There are three in number, the singer revealed at the beginning of the evening: “Don’t be an asshole. Don’t judge anyone – I don’t want ‘judgy eyes’ and have fun.”
The fans in the hall, which had been sold out for weeks, really had fun. The Californian really delivered, played all her mega hits, even acoustically enchanted with the song “Your Power” with brother Finneas, floated through the hall on a lifting platform, let a mobile phone light Laola waft through the hall and burst out laughing when her a fan threw a rubber breast onto the stage.

Eilish managed to get her audience on her side in her own unique way. “It’s hard to describe how much you mean to me,” said the 20-year-old shortly before the end of the concert.
Just before confetti rained down on the fans, just before thousands of blissful people left the hall and were once again struggling with the problems of everyday life such as congested and delayed trains. It’s a phrase you’ve heard many superstars say. You just want to believe Billie Eilish.
