HOUSTON – Pop star Harry Styles has officially postponed his Houston concert due to Tropical Storm Nicholas.
Unfortunately, due to the approaching storm in Houston, I’ve been advised that tonight’s show at the Toyota Center can’t happen. Safety must take priority, so please go home and be safe.— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) September 13, 2021
I’m so sorry, thank you for understanding.
I love you all. H

There were hundreds of fans already in line outside of the Toyota Center when the announcement was made.
According to fans who spoke with venue security, there were multiple indicators (i.e. the stage was not yet set up, the merchandise was being returned to trailers, etc.) that the concert would not go on as planned.
spoke to another security guard & he said when he went into work he saw the stage and it wasn’t even set up for the night which is unusual bc it’s usually partially done or finished hhahahha luv that!— leeann HARRY TODAY!! (@softandclumsy) September 13, 2021
Upon learning that Styles would not be taking the stage tonight, several fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment.

i know harry and his team didn’t force anyone to wait, but why would they let people sit in the rain for 7 1/2 hours before making an announcement? frustrated the announcement was so late but thankful everyone is safe ://— kara ☕️ (@saoirserry) September 13, 2021
In another announcement, the Toyota Center assured fans the event is only postponed, not canceled, and to hold on to tickets.
