Harry Styles debuted two new songs as he kicked off his world tour in Basel, Switzerland, on Sunday night.
The 24-year-old belted out “Anna” — mashed up with snippets of George Michael’s “Faith” — and “Medicine”, as well as tracks from his self-titled debut solo album, which was released last year.
Fans went wild for the new songs, with many taking to social media to share clips from the show.
Despite Styles playing an array of smaller venues towards the end of 2017, he’s now back performing arenas. His latest tour will see him take the stage in Toronto, London, New York, and Washington before finishing up at the Los Angeles Forum on July 13. For the full list of dates click here.
Styles spoke about his new album after its eagerly anticipated release date and insisted that although he recognizes that a lot of his fans are young women, he asked, “Who’s to say that young girls who like pop music have worse musical taste than a 30-year-old hipster guy?”
The heartthrob told Rolling Stone, “Music is something that’s always changing. There’s no goal posts. Young girls like the Beatles. You gonna tell me they’re not serious? How can you say young girls don’t get it? They’re our future.
“Our future doctors, lawyers, mothers, presidents… they kind of keep the world going. Teenage-girl fans – they don’t lie. If they like you, they’re there. They don’t act ‘too cool.’ They like you, and they tell you, which is sick.”
