One of the events that was to be held on the same Sunday was Harry Styles’ concert, as part of his Love On Tour world tour. The show was scheduled to take place at the Royal Arena with a sell-out of around 17,000 tickets. However, the altercation forced the show to be cancelled for the safety of the audience
Harry Styles’ concert in Copenhagen was scheduled for this Sunday at 21:00 at the Royal Arena. Just an hour before the event was due to start, a shooting took place at Field’s shopping centre, 650 metres away
Initially the organisers had assured that the concert would go ahead, however, they have finally decided to cancel. The British singer had sold all the tickets and the fans who were inside the pavilion were still hoping to see their idol, making waves, singing great hits such as ‘We are the Champions’ or some One Direction classics. It was then, at around 21:40 hours, that the cancellation of the performance was communicated through the loudspeakers. Styles himself wrote on Snapchat that he was “shocked” and said that he and his team were praying for all those affected.
Copenhagen experienced a shocking incident on Sunday 3 July. A shooting took place in a shopping centre in the city, killing several people and injuring several others. The police have already arrested the main suspect in the incident, a 22-year-old man. The incident has paralysed the town with the anguish and uncertainty of not knowing exactly what caused it.
Harry Styles has been deeply affected by what has happened and has expressed it on his social media: “I am heartbroken along with the people of Copenhagen. I love this city. The people are so warm and full of love. I am devastated for the victims, their families and all those who suffer”.
An altercation that comes at a time of great anticipation for the Brit’s fans and which has been dampened by the sight of his city ending the week with a huge scare and several people affected in the first person
The British will also be in Spain with his Love On Tour, and he will do so this month. On 29 July he will play songs from his Harry’s House at the Wizink Center in Madrid. A concert that will be very special, after having been postponed due to the pandemic, and which is sold out.
