The Year of Harry Styles
Harry Styles, a member of the British boy band One Direction, has officially begun his solo career. After a year of anticipation since One Direction’s announced hiatus, Styles finally stepped back into the spotlight and impressed critics and fans alike. Zayn’s departure from the band left One Direction with one less member and a bruised reputation. Each embarked on their individual lives, starting solo careers or families of their own. However, Styles remained quiet. Wearing his quieter, aura-of-mystery persona, nobody knew what to expect from Harry Styles in the coming years.
Finally, Styles put on a debut solo performance on Saturday Night Live in April. He performed his lead single from his self-titled debut album that will drop on May 12th. “Sign of the Times,” dropped a few days prior to the performance, leans towards an ’80s rock, David-Bowie vibe that demonstrated the depth and difference of Styles’ solo career from the pop sound of One Direction. He also performed a second song on SNL titled “Ever Since New York,” another song off of the upcoming album.
Styles then announced limited dates for his “Harry Styles Live On Tour” 2017 World Tour. There are thirteen North American dates so far, and the tour strays from the huge arenas of One Direction’s tours and towards more intimate settings at some of the most iconic venues in the country. Tickets go on sale to the public on May 5th. Get your tickets here at TicketNetwork.
