AceShowbiz - Harry Styles fans were banned from queueing until 12 hours before his show at the O2 Academy Brixton. While the former One Direction singer is playing the iconic London venue on Tuesday night, May 24, his admirers were told they wouldn't be able to camp out to try and land a spot at the front of the crowd.
According to a sign outside the venue, "queueing for the Harry Styles show is strictly prohibited until 8am on Tuesday, May 24." Over the weekend, the venue explained the rule was down to other concerts "on the preceding nights."
The team tweeted: "IMPORTANT NOTICE If you're lucky enough to have tickets to @Harry_Styles, we're as excited about this show as anyone but we have other gigs on the preceding nights so we must stress that you won't be able to queue for it until 8am on Tue 24 May. Thank you for understanding."
The "As It Was" hitmaker dropped his third solo album 'Harry's House' on Friday, May 20 and he's playing the one-off Brixton gig to celebrate the release. The record is currently leading the charge to top the charts this week, and the LP has broken further records on Amazon Music.
The collection already smashed the record for the most first-day Alexa album requests for a male artist in Amazon Music history, while it also had the most first-day Alexa album requests so far this year.
In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, the 28-year-old star explained how the album gives fans the chance to spend "a day in my mind." Harry explained, "When I took that title, put it to the songs we were making, it felt like it took on this whole new meaning and it was about, imagine it's a day in my house. What do I go through? A day in my mind, what do I go through in my house?"
"I'm playing fun music. I'm playing sad music. I'm playing this, I'm playing that. Feeling stuff. Kind of like a day in the life. I like all of that stuff," she shared. "And I think while it obviously is a lot more electronic in a lot of places than anything I've made, it's also so much more intimate to me. And so much more intimately made."
