Harry Styles releases new ‘Love on Tour’ dates after delay3 min read
Harry Styles fans had been getting restless about when his “Love On Tour” dates would be finalized.
But now they’re singing “Adore You” to him, as the “Watermelon Sugar” singer just came out with an updated list. And Styles wants fans to know that he was working hard to get all of the COVID-19 disrupted dates rebooked.
“LOVE ON TOUR will be going out across the USA this September and I could not be more excited for these shows,” Styles wrote Wednesday on Instagram. “As always, the well-being of my fans, band, and crew, is my top priority. Safety guidelines will be available on the respective venue websites to ensure we can all be together as safely as possible. Please notice that some dates have changed, and new shows have been added.”
“To everyone in the UK, and across the world, I can’t wait to see you again, but for obvious reasons it is just not possible at this time,” he added. “I will be sharing more news soon about shows across the globe, and new music. I love you all so much. I’m very excited, and I can’t wait to see you. H”
Insiders also told The Post that Styles has been working non-stop to get “Love On Tour” back on track.
This announcement came just a few hours after Ticketmaster alerted fans that the Inglewood, California, shows would be postponed to mid-November, causing uproar on Twitter. Some fans were also quick to jump on Styles’ side during the ticket fiasco, stating that the singer himself was not the one organizing the events. Others blamed Ticketmaster for posting the announcement quietly “in the middle of the night” with no official announcement from Styles or his management team.
A number of shows that were slated for mid-August — such as one in Tacoma, Washington — were pushed back as well, making the new opening date Sept. 4 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
“Love On Tour” is the second concert tour by the English singer-songwriter, who gained fame as a member of One Direction. The tour was supposed to start in 2020 shortly after the release of his second album “Fine Line,” but it was pushed back to 2021 amid the coronavirus pandemic.
COVID-19 was detrimental to many musical artists and ensembles who had to cancel tours or push them online. Many beloved festivals like Coachella and Governors Ball were canceled in 2020, and drive-in concerts became the new entertainment trend across New York — at limited capacity.
But musicians have come up with creative ways to navigate the virtual world. Back in June, BTS brought together the band’s seven members for their highly anticipated, two-day livestreaming event, BTS 2021 Muster Sowoozoo. Central Park Summer Stage has brought live music back to the city, and in June, the Foo Fighters rocked the first Madison Square Garden show since COVID-19 began.
Styles will perform five times at Madison Square Garden in the fall — Oct. 3, 4, and 16 will be his regular “Love On Tour” stops, and Oct. 30 and 31 are dates for his Harryween Fancy Dress Party.
Verified fan registration to purchase tickets opened Wednesday and runs through Sunday, July 18. Presale registration for newly added dates can be found on Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform. The verified fan presale for select dates — including Nashville, Tennessee, Uncasville, Connecticut, and Milwaukee — begins on Wednesday, July 21. Tickets open to all fans on Friday, July 23.
