Like a pious priest coming face-to-face with the unfathomable image of God, men and women alike avert their gaze when they encounter the charismatic beauty of Harry Styles. He's so handsome it's almost painful. The tangled mass of his brunette locks, those come hither tattoos, the chin that looks as if it were chiselled by Michelangelo on one of his horndog days. My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my love as deep. The more I give to thee, hunky Harry, the more I have, for both are infinite.
Thousands more panting fans will be secretly hoping Styles will marry them when he takes to the stage on the UK leg of his Love On Tour gigs, taking place throughout June. In typically effusive fashion, Styles unveiled the tour dates on Instagram, writing, 'I'm so excited to see you. Thank you, I love you. H.' What a dreamboat.
These shows are guaranteed to sell out in a matter of minutes, so to help you nab tickets we've whipped up this handy guide. Read on to find out when and where Styles is playing, when tickets go on sale, what presales are available, who'll support him on the tour, when he'll release his third album, and more.

Where and when will Harry Styles be performing in the UK?
Harry Styles will play three brand new dates in the UK as part of his partly rescheduled Love On Tour trot around the globe. Kicking off on Saturday 11 June at Glasgow's Ibrox Stadium, the UK leg of the 32-date tour will then hit Manchester's Emirates Old Trafford Stadium on Wednesday 15 June and culminate on Saturday 18 June at London's Wembley Stadium.
Here's a detailed list of his UK tour dates:
Saturday 11 June – Ibrox Stadium, Glasgow
Wednesday 15 June – Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester
Saturday 18 June – Wembley Stadium, London

Where can I buy tickets for Harry Styles' tour?
How much will tickets for the gigs cost?
The price of tickets for these three dates are yet to be announced, but ranged from £40-£75 in the UK for his cancelled tour in 2020, with VIP options costing upwards of £159.50.
We don't know if this price will increase or not given Styles' ever-soaring stardom, but this is a solid ball-park figure. A maximum of four tickets per person applies and tickets in excess of four will be cancelled.
Who'll be supporting Harry Styles on the tour?
US indie guitar sensation Mitski will support Styles on every date of his UK tour, and we'd argue she's a more exciting force in the music industry than Styles himself. Five albums deep into her career, she's become highly regarded as a writer of unbeatable melodies with self-lacerating lyrics on love, loneliness and the travails of twenty-something life.
Mitski's been stanning Styles for a long time in interviews and editorial pieces, even recording a cover of One Direction's 'Fireproof' to raise funds for charity in 2017. In an article on Styles for pop culture website Talkhouse, she wrote, 'I would stand like an ant in an arena crowd just to witness his magnetism; his expansion as a performer since his beginnings in One Direction.' Read the full piece here.
Mitski will also be embarking on a tour of her own this April, if you want to see her give a headline performance in more modest settings. In the meantime, wrap your lugs around her electrifying new single 'Love Me More' and enjoy:
Elsewhere in the world, Styles will be supported by laidback popster Arlo Parks in Ireland, emotive rockers Wolf Alice on select European dates and Jamaican singer-songwriter Koffee on all Latin American dates.
What'll be on Harry's setlist?
The beginning of this run of Love On Tour begins at an intersection in Styles' career, the ecstatic success of Fine Line receding into the distance and the as-yet unfulfilled promise of his eagerly anticipated third album twinkling brightly on the horizon.
Where that leave Styles' setlist, then, is anyone's guess, but we'd bet our house that he'll play the future classics 'Watermelon Sugar', 'Sign Of The Times' and 'Adore You' on every date of the tour. If you're lucky, there may even be a light sprinkling of One Direction tunes to keep fans happy (although let's pray that he doesn't pull out their execrable cover of 'One Way Or Another', which seems machine-tooled to make ears bleed).
Is Fine Line any good?
By most metrics, Styles' second solo outing Fine Line is an unmitigated success, pleasing fans and critics alike for its squeaky-clean production, Radio 1-friendly hits and its tentative toe-dipping into a panoply of musical genres. Although it never veers into avant garde territory, Styles happily experiments with an array of styles in this sophomore effort, from the twinkling synths of 'Sunflower, Vol. 6' to the bustling harmonies of 'Golden'.
He fired in a lot of directions for Fine Line, but hit the bullseye with 'Watermelon Sugar', a charming single that became ubiquitous on its release in 2019. Have a listen to it below and bathe in its pre-pandemic naivety:
When will Harry release his next album?
Whispers of a third Styles album have been gaining traction throughout the past few months, with members of the former One Direction star's inner circle slating it for release at the start of the year.
An inside source told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column, 'Harry started working on the album in early 2020 and had a few writing sessions under his belt before the pandemic really took hold.
'As a result plans were put on ice but most of the record ended up being recorded in the UK.
'Right now exact details are top secret but the track listing should be decided soon.
'Harry is really excited about the album.'
Beyond this quote, details on the album are sparse. But expect plenty more to emerge long before this infuriatingly handsome megastar hits the road.
