Harry Styles surprises fans with Stormzy at intimate London gig for 1500 fans

Harry Styles delighted fans by performing a secret intimate gig at London’s Electric Ballroom on Thursday, 19 December, and fans couldn’t get enough of hearing Fine Line live.

The singer, 25, gave fans the opportunity to bag tickets to the concert at the 1,500-capacity venue by ordering his album from his official website – a rare chance to see the singer up close and personal – and even get a surprise performance from Stormzy, too.

He may be more used to selling out arenas all around the world, so it’s no wonder the 1,500 tickets got snapped up like gold dust once they went on sale.

Details of the venue were revealed on the day, with fans even more hyped to get to see him at Camden’s Electric Ballroom venue, known for the personal nature of its gigs.

Hundreds of fans who didn’t manage to get tickets also queued up outside the venue in the hopes of nabbing a spare from someone else or getting a glimpse of Harry as he entered or left the venue.

The singer chose a pale yellow suit for his performance with a yellow scrunchie on his wrist, upping the formal factor with a black tie, and had his hair styled to perfection as only he knows how.

His performance of Canyon Moon was a favourite with the crowds, who sang along with every word (because, if you don’t know all the words to Fine Line by now, what have you actually been doing with your December?!).

Harry addressed the crowd as he took to the stage, saying: ‘My name is Harry, nice to meet you all. Thank you very much for coming tonight, it’s nice to see you.’

He also held a rainbow flag as he sang We’ll Be Alright and Treat People With Kindness as the stage behind him lit up in multiple colours, after beginning his set with Golden.

His cover of Lizzo’s Juice at BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge was one of the highlights of the fans’ week – so it was no wonder they went wild hearing it live in Camden.

As well as a Lizzo cover and tracks from his own album, Harry also treated fans to a surprise guest appearance from none other than Stormzy, who joined him on stage to sing Vossi Bop together.

As well as performing together, Stormzy had high praise for Harry, telling the crowd he’s ‘not just a popstar, but a brilliant artist’ – and fans were loving their unexpected friendship.

Harry’s new album has had high praise from fans and critics alike since it was released at the start of December, and he admitted that it felt like ‘giving birth’ when he finally released the record.

He told Kiss FM: ‘It’s a little bittersweet because you live with it for so long and it feels like it’s yours. Then you start giving it away.

‘That’s the most exciting part, having people hear it for the first time. It’s fun. I assume the pain’s not the same, but it feels a little like giving birth.’

It’s safe to say a lot of people are very jealous of the 1,500 that made it in to the Electric Ballroom for this gig.
