The former One Direction member turned solo star was set to appear at the FlyDSA Arena on April 17 as part of a series of dates called ‘Love on Tour’ – but now the show has been pushed back by 11 months until March 17 next year.
Tickets purchased will be valid for the rescheduled gig. The arena’s policy on refunds states: “You can attend the new date with your original tickets or return them to the point of purchase for a full refund of the tickets and in most cases booking and facility fees.”
Styles said on Twitter: “During times like these, the safety and protection of touring crew, fans and everyone else around the world is an immediate priority."
Styles’ tour was booked to promote his latest album Fine Line, which includes the singles Lights Up and Adore You. The LP debuted at number three on the UK Albums Chart and number one on the US Billboard 200 – making it his second consecutive number one album in the US.
The Covid-19 outbreak has had a dramatic impact on the music industry. Concerts and festivals across the world have been either cancelled or delayed – the biggest casualties include Glastonbury, the Isle of Wight Festival and California’s Coachella Festival, which has been moved to October.
All shows due to take place at O2 Academy venues until the end of April have been postponed.
