Why Harry Styles’ surprise ‘Love On Tour’ dates have fans upset

Although Harry Styles preached “Treat People With Kindness” on his album “Fine Line,” some fans think he has done anything but that.

After months of uncertainty about whether Styles’ much anticipated Love On Tour was actually happening, fans across the world were taken aback — again — after Ticketmaster announced a number of rescheduled dates for some performances.

Love On Tour is the second concert tour by the English singer-songwriter who gained fame as a member of One Direction. It’s now set to begin on August 14 in Tacoma, Washington, and features 85 announced dates. The tour was supposed to start in 2020 shortly after the release of his second album “Fine Line,” but it was pushed back to 2021 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

So far, there has been no official announcement on the status of Love On Tour — and some disgruntled fans are giving Harry hell about it.

Since Styles and concert organizers had remained silent about many of the tour details, many fans had no clue whether or not the 27-year-old pop star would actually go on tour in the first place.

Last week, one Twitter user asked, “Is my love on tour show happening in october or not lmao if you have time to travel italy in a yacht i feel like you could spare 30 seconds to update us.” They continued, “Most us are not millionaires with private jets that can plan a trip in 2 days mf do i need a plane ticket or not.”

Some fans were quite quick to criticize Styles for remaining silent about his tour while he was on vacation in Tuscany with Olivia Wilde. One user stated, “I’m not even going to one of the concerts and I’m so mad for y’all that he hasn’t even said anything like we don’t have the money to book hotel rooms plus air flights like all that is expensive asf and we don’t have the money to book everything and at the end he cancels or som yk.”

Another called out Styles directly by tweeting, “You need to do your job RIGHT, this is important and you know that. people spend their money, cancelled plans all for this and now they’re still in uncertainty so stop focussing on your stupid stunt and do something important thank you.”

Others took to defending Styles, stating that it was his management who was to blame for the lack of communication and inconvenience.

On Tuesday, Ticketmaster notified ticket holders for Styles’ late August concerts in Inglewood, California, that the shows have been pushed to mid-November. This announcement has left fans with hard-to-get tickets at other venues on edge.

“The only reason I’m upset about my date being changed is because his team and himself never tweeted or told any of us that he was going to reschedule,” one fan griped. “We know nothing about what’s going on with tour and this is the first thing we’ve seen.”

“Is harry or hshq gonna post about the new tour dates cuz like i feel like they should since it’s there tour,” another commented. “It’s so messed up. Kinda glad there is no tour in my country for now,” said a third.

Others have called today “Love On Tour Chaos Day” as Twitter continues to blow up with angry, anxious and disheartened fans — as well as those looking to capitalize on people selling their tickets. However, many will likely continue holding onto their tickets, even if they were postponed from a Friday to a Wednesday.

A few users were actually elated over the news, due to safety concerns or dates being conveniently postponed to birthdays.

Styles will be performing five times at Madison Square Garden this October — Oct. 3, 4, and 16 will be his regular Love On Tour dates, and Oct. 30 and 31 are dates for the Harryween Fancy Dress Party.
