Who's ready to enter Harry's House?!
We are sick of getting major FOMO from clips of Harry Styles' concerts but finally, it's our turn! We're fizzing to see what outfit he wears, what songs he sings and tbh just be in his presence.
Hazza was supposed to come back to NZ in 2020 until COVID ruined everything, so it's been a long time coming. We hope you've got your outfits planned, feather boas purchased, and practised the boot scoot.
Below is EVERYTHING you need to know in order to have the best night of your silly little life.

5pm – Gates open
6.30pm – Show starts (Wet Leg are opening)
* Note: Timings are subject to change without notice. It's recommended fans arrive at least two hours before Harry Styles is set to take the stage, so they have enough time to make their way to their seats in time for the first song.
