Performing in Mexico last night, Harry Styles stopped his show to address a crowd of adoring fans with a somber tone.
“I wanted to celebrate with you. But tonight doesn’t feel like a night to celebrate. Last night there was a tragedy in my hometown of Manchester, and I have been left with a hole in my heart.”
Styles explained that the first show he had ever attended had been at the arena where 22 have lost their lives due to a terrorist attack following an Ariana Grande concert on Monday night.
“We have a choice, every single day that we wake up, of what we can put into the world,” Harry went on, “and I ask you to please choose love every single day. I promise that we will be back very soon to Mexico, we will be back with a full show, but tonight, if it’s OK with you, we’re going to play a small acoustic set. I hope you understand, and I hope you’ll join me in a moment of silence for the victims and for the families of the victims in Manchester today. Thank you for understanding. I love you very much.”
