Crazy For Harry


Via Madison Square Garden

Emily Barbire, Editor

Pop superstar Harry Styles made history this past week as he wrapped up his fifteenth consecutive show at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Since September of 2021, Styles has been traveling the globe performing “Love on Tour.”

After the release of his new hit album, Harry’s House, Styles and his team added another leg to the tour – one in which he would break records. From August through September of 2022, Styles sold out Madison Square Garden fifteen times, a massive accomplishment for the rising star and something that has never been done before. 

Throughout his lengthy run at MSG, Styles never disappointed with his electric performances – something I got to experience on his tenth night at the venue. He kept fans on their toes over what his outfit would be on a particular night or whether he would sing his unreleased song, Medicine, which makes fans go crazy.

He remained lively during all fifteen nights, running back and forth from film festivals for premieres of his two new films, Don’t Worry Darling and My Policeman, to the arena. And, of course, Styles made sure to showcase his dance moves and interact with his fans, giving them a little glimpse of the person he is outside of all the fame and glory. 

On September 21, Styles took the stage for the last time at the Garden. As the fans entered the arena, Styles gifted each person in attendance a feather boa – a tribute to the boa shortage that has spread throughout the tri-state area due to fans purchasing them to top off their funky outfits influenced by Styles himself.

However, the surprises did not stop there.

At the show’s end, he sang an old song from his debut album, Ever Since New York, and to top off the night, a banner was lifted for Styles that will permanently reside in the arena. 

The banner was gifted to Styles by CBS Morning Show Host Gayle King, on behalf of Madison Square Garden. King gave a speech about the grammy-award-winning singer, saying, “Thank you… We don’t want to say goodnight to you, Harry,” a cheesy nod to his hit song As It Was, which features a voicemail from his goddaughter.

The banner now sits at the top of the arena, next to similar signs for artists such as Billy Joel and Phish. Filled with emotion, Styles thanked the fans, reminding them of his gratitude for allowing this to happen to him. During his speech, he said, “…remember it’s because of you. This is ours.”  

This is not the only major accomplishment Styles will be experiencing in the coming weeks. Riding off an electric high from the Garden, he will next travel to Texas and Chicago, where he will play six shows in each location. Then, Styles will make history for a second time while playing fifteen consecutive nights at the forum in Los Angeles, California. All this will take place while his hit song As it Was breaks records at fourteen weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 and his film Don’t Worry Darling tops the Box Office Charts.
