Harry Styles thrills fans with a surprise London gig
The singer announced the charity show hours before hitting the stage in north London.
Singer Harry Styles has delighted UK fans by announcing a surprise charity gig in the capital on Saturday.
The performance comes the day after the One Direction star released his debut solo album, Harry Styles.
According to the 23-year-old’s official website, a “very limited number of tickets” went on sale on Saturday morning.
Hi, i'm playing a show in London tonight. Tickets are available now, details here.. https://t.co/iu0yKzMJse— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) May 13, 2017
See you later. H
Hopeful fans, strictly over the age of 16, were asked to travel to the venue in Highbury, north London, for the chance to buy a single £10 ticket.
Proceeds will go to the Little Princess Trust, which provides real hair wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment.
It comes months before he launches his first solo tour, playing at UK events on four dates later in the year.
British fans complained about Harry’s limited attention to his home country when the events were unveiled last month, but he has since been making up for it with a series of surprise appearances to promote the new record.
On Thursday he dropped in on fans attending a screening about the making of the album in west London’s Electric Cinema and on Friday he met crowds waiting for him at BBC’s Broadcasting House as he arrived for a series of morning radio shows.
His London-based greetings are of little use to his hordes of overseas followers, who have taken to Twitter to beg the singer to travel further afield.
