The Harries among us will soon have the opportunity to thirst in person. Harry Styles announced on Wednesday that he (and his enormous white sailor pants) is embarking on a world tour—aptly titled Love on Tour—in 2020. The global takeover will follow the release of his new album, Fine Line, on December 13 and his hosting and musical-performance duties on this weekend’s SNL. All this while I’m still recovering from the “Lights Up” video.
Adding to the mania are the artists that Styles, regular breaker of the internet and boy with the pearl earring, has chosen to open for him: In the U.S. he’ll follow indie dream girl (and former Troop Beverly Hills star) Jenny Lewis; in Europe the rising queer pop goddess King Princess; and in Mexico reggae songstress Koffee.
The response from Harry fans is a resounding “Please take all my money and control of my 2020 calendar too.”
Last year King Princess—who counted Styles as an early supporter when she released her first single, “1950”—said no to opening for Styles because she wasn’t quite ready. That has clearly changed, as King Princess (given name: Mikaela Straus) shared her excitement about Love on Tour in no uncertain terms on Wednesday, tweeting: “I’m fully hard and excited to destroy the stadiums of Europe with my bro.” Same?
North American fans are already threatening to procure transatlantic tickets to see this electric duo live; some frankly can’t decide who will be the more attractive act.
Others point to Styles’s support for the LGBTQ community—“We’re all a little bit gay,” he has said—and his selection of King Princess is proof the tour will be gloriously queer.
One thing’s for sure: Given Styles’s penchant for fashion—including the cheeky heels included in Wednesday’s tour announcement—it’s probably best that we all start outfit planning now.
