The day after Harry Styles solo album debuted, and he had a ton of radio promotion to do, he played a secret show in London where tickets were sold for 10 and all proceeds went to The Little Princess Trust. Needless to say, we found yet another reason to adore Harry…not that we needed one…he’s got us wrapped around his finger already.
He’s set up the secret gig at The Garage and in addition to fans, friends and family of Harry attended as well. He’s played a few songs since his solo debut, but this was the first concert like experience that he’s had on his own. The support he felt must have been immeasurable; not just by those in attendance, but those keeping up with it on social media as well.
The Garage housed about 600 fans so those who got tickets beat the odds. In addition to a small venue, you had to get the ticket in person, and the fans who were able to make it happen experienced a bit of history last night.
In addition to the songs on his album, Harry sang ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ and ‘Ultralight Beam’ – yep, he took on a Kanye song and did so beautifully.

While all of the songs on Harry’s album are incredible, and they sounded just as fantastic live. There was an incredible level of energy when he sang ‘Woman’, ‘Kiwi’ and ‘Carolina’. A more somber energy when ‘Sign of the Times’ ‘Two Ghosts’ and ‘Meet me in the Hallway’ were played. Harry put a lot of himself into the album, and his reaction to fans enjoying that was incredible.
Some fans in attendance took home pink posters with a close up of Harry alongside the date and location of his secret show but every fan in attendance took home memories that will undoubtedly last a lifetime.
