From the jump, 2023 has been a year for Harry Styles to shine even sparklier than his signature jumpsuits. After winning Album of the Year at the Grammys and the Brit Award for British Artist of the Year in February, later that month he was awarded Major Tour of the Year – for the second year in a row – at the Pollstar Awards.
The superstar also earned the Pollstar Award for Residency of the Year for his incredible 15-night run at New York’s Madison Square Garden, New York, the Per Cap Award and the Brand Partnership/Live Campaign of the Year in recognition of teaming up with Everytown for Gun Safety.
“The ‘typical’ hotel/Las Vegas residency model has been changed forever,” CAA’s Mitch Rose told Pollstar earlier this year, citing Styles’ “Harry’s House” runs – that also included stops at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena, Inglewood, California’s Kia Forum, Austin’s Moody Center and Chicago’s United Center – as the most impactful business success of the past year.
Styles launched 2023 with three nights at the Kia Forum in January (gigs that were pushed back from November 2022 because he had the flu) and two nights at the new Acrisure Arena in Thousand Palms, California, then headed to stadiums across the globe, starting with Australia and New Zealand. In March the superstar took “Love On Tour” to Asia and then kicked off a run of European dates in May.
As previously reported, the Live Nation-promoted “Love On Tour,” which began in 2021 (and that year sold the most tickets of any tour), will go down as one of the top 10 highest-grossing tours in history.
Since the trek launched in September 2021 at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena, Styles has played 152 shows and grossed more than $534.3 million with a total of 3,935,150 tickets sold as of June 10. Note that this figure doesn’t include Styles’ four shows at Wembley Stadium June 13-14 and June 16-17 or two nights at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
“Love On Tour” continues playing European stadiums through late July, including two nights at Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt, Germany; Ernst-Happel-Stadion in Vienna, Austria and Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys in Barcelona, Spain.
