Harry Styles has postponed the first leg of his world tour because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Like many artists who have been left with no choice but to postpone their own tours, Harry Styles has also followed suit.
The singer announced on social media that he is moving the European leg of the tour to February next year. It is now set to start on February 12 in Bologna, Italy. The first leg of the world tour was supposed to start in Birmingham, UK on April 15.

Anyone who knows me, knows that performing has always been my favorite part of working in music. However, during times like these, the safety and protection of touring crew, fans, and everyone else around the world is an immediate priority. For obvious reasons, the upcoming tour in the UK and Europe will be rescheduled to 2021. Tickets already purchased will be valid for these shows. In the meantime, we will be closely monitoring the situation around the world and will continue updating you in the months to come. For the safety of yourself and others, please self-isolate. We’re all in this together. I can’t wait to see you out on the road as soon as it’s safe to do so. Until then, treat people with kindness. H
