Fan tries to sell ‘Billie Eilish’s air’ for over £9k after attending gig

The item description was just great

A Billie Eilish fan tried to sell a bag of air collected from one of the singer’s gigs for over £9,000 – though it didn’t seem to go to plan.

We’ve all bought a t-shirt outside the gig venue in our time, or even a resale ticket, but this fan from Singapore is surely taking touting to another level.

The anonymous seller listed the item – if you’d call it that – on Carousell, a Singaporean buy-and-sell site. The air is “very rare”, according to the seller. So rare, in fact, that they believed it was worthy of costing 15,000 Singapore dollars (£9,117 / $10,805).

Anybody considering buying the oxygen for such a hefty amount may have been concerned about – er – losing it. But rest assured, the seller promised the item would be “kept in an air-tight container upon dealing to prevent leaking”.

The item description said: “I stood at the very front and managed to get her air in the plastic when she scream her lungs out during the concert! For those who missed the concert u can buy this!! Very rare air!!”

It turns out, however, that the sale did not go to plan, as the item has since been removed. Whether the air failed to sell for the expected price, or if the seller decided to keep the item for their own personal use, remains unknown.

It comes as the US star continues her Happier Than Ever tour across the world, which saw her perform in Belfast, Dublin, Manchester, London, Glasgow and Birmingham in June.

In the same months, the 20-year-old also became the youngest artist in history to headline Glastonbury’s main stage.

Eilish took the opportunity to call out the Supreme Court for their decision to overturn the Roe v Wade abortion law, meaning US states can individually decide whether or not to outlaw abortion.

In her set, Eilish said: “Today is a dark day for women in America. It’s all I’m able to say about it. I can’t bear to think about it.”
