Coronavirus: Harry Styles postpones European tour until 2021

He'll hit the road early next year instead.

Harry Styles has become the latest artist to postpone their tour as the coronavirus pandemic continues across the globe.

The ‘Fine Line’ singer was set to begin his European tour in Birmingham next month, before following it with dates in Sheffield, Dublin, London, Manchester and Glasgow.

But he has now announced that the European leg of the tour will be pushed back to February and March 2021, in order to prevent the spread of the virus.

“Anyone who knows me, knows that performing has always been my favorite part of working in music,” Styles wrote on Twitter.

“However, during times like these, the safety and protection of touring crew, fans, and everyone else around the world is an immediate priority.”

The rescheduled dates can be seen in full below. All tickets remain valid for the new shows.

He joins the likes of Dua Lipa, who also announced details of rescheduled shows yesterday as the virus continues to spread across the globe.

Meanwhile, Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks recently said Harry Styles is inspiring her to write new music as she listens to his second album ‘Fine Line’ to get through the crisis.

“I am getting all my paintings and drawings out – listening to music (mostly Harry Styles’ ‘Fine Line’) and being inspired by him to write some new songs and poetry,” she wrote.

“Way to go H – it is your ‘Rumours’.”
