Thousands of Australian Harry Styles fans have been crushed after the pop sensation canceled his Australian concert dates for 2022.
The pop star announced new dates for shows in the UK, Europe and South America, but unfortunately Australia was left out of the list.
Fans who have been clinging to their tickets to ‘Love On Tour’ shows for almost two years got the bad news Thursday morning.
“Due to the continuing challenges of international touring, Harry Styles’ ‘Love On Tour’ is unable to be relocated to Australia and New Zealand in 2022,” Live Nation Australia announced this morning.
The promoters said that although this tour has been canceled, they will be working towards a new Australian tour.
They also assured all current ticket holders that they would receive a full refund.
In a message to his fans, Harry Styles said the Australian tour was just “not possible” at the moment.
“To everyone in Australia and New Zealand, I can not believe that four years have passed,” he said.
“I can not wait to see you again, but unfortunately it is just not possible at the moment.
‘I can not wait to see you again, but unfortunately it’s just not possible at the moment’ – Harry Styles
“I will soon be sharing news about new shows, I love you all so much – I miss you and I can not wait to see you.”
Heartbroken fans have since called the singer up and taken to social media to express their disappointment after the decision.
Tickets for the arena shows were originally scheduled for November 2020 and went on sale in March 2020, just as the pandemic hit.
Styles announced in September that shows would be postponed, with thousands still clinging to their tickets in hopes that the tour would still continue on the rescheduled dates.
