Harry, who is nominated for four BRIT awards this year: Mastercard Album of the Year, Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and Pop/R&B Act, joins the already announced Wet Leg and Sam Smith & Kim Petras.
With the title of the best selling UK album and single of 2022, Harry Styles has established himself as one of the biggest and most influential artists in music. Released in May last year, Harry’s House debuted at No. 1 on the UK Album Charts, US Billboard 200 and over 12 countries around the world – and has remained in the UK Top Ten Album Chart since its release. His self-titled solo debut album became one of the world’s top ten best-selling albums of the year and had the largest first week sales by a male artist in history. His second album, Fine Line, topped the Billboard 200 when released, becoming Harry’s second number-one album in the US, and made chart history with the biggest sales week for a male solo artist since Nielsen Music began electronic trading in 1991 of sales data. Since the beginning of his solo career, he has won prestigious accolades including two BRIT awards, a Grammy award, an Ivor Novello Award, an American Music Award and many others around the world, in addition to being the first man to solo on the cover of Vogue Magazine.
Harry is equally known as an incredible live performer. His Love On Tour shows began in the US in September 2021 and since then he has played to a combined audience of over two million people. Love On Tour will go global this summer, arriving in Europe in May, supported by Wet Leg, hitting UK shores on June 11 in Glasgow and playing four nights at Wembley Stadium.
