Article: Harry Styles performs at the Garage
May 13th, 2017: Tonight Harry Styles performed for the very first time the full set of songs from his newly released album HARRY.STYLES at the the Garage in London; included in the setlist was also Ultralight Beam by Kanye West and One Direction’s Stockholm Syndrome.
While Harry’s album was released only yesterday, Harry has been performing songs off of it throughout his promo for the last month on different radio and TV shows in the USA, UK and France. A live show at a secret location for May 13th had been announced on his website earlier but no further details had been given. During the early hours of May 13th Harry tweeted about the show directing fans to his websites for details. The tickets were only available at the venue and were to be paid by cash, $10.00.
Harry also announced that all the proceeds from this show were going to be donated to Little Princess Trust, a charity that Harry has supported through the years, which provides real hair wigs to children that have lost their hair due to cancer treatment. When Harry cut his hair last year, he donated it to Little Princess Trust so that wigs could be made out of it. Read our article here about Harry donating his hair.
Harry chose to perform at the finest indie and rock venue in London. The Garage was founded in 1993 and it immediately established itself as the number one venue for emerging artists. Acts that have performed at this venue include Green Day, Muse, Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, Temples, Jagwar Ma, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Paramore, Oasis and My Chemical Romance. It is basically considered a right of passage for an emerging artist to perform at this venue. Harry Styles has had huge success with One Direction but this is his first album as a solo artist.
Photographs and videos of the performance immediately inundated social media. They show Harry wearing a pink embroided suit while performing several of the songs off his album which he accompanied on his guitar. Harry will continue his promo at the Late Late show with James Corden next week, where he is scheduled to appear for 4 days. Harry Styles live tour will kick off on September 19th in San Francisco.
