Harry Styles has announced a concert at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium for June this year.

The former One Direction singer turned solo superstar will play the stadium on June 22nd as part of his Love On Tour tour.

Styles and his legions of Irish fans will hope it will be third time lucky and that his show in Ireland will finally go ahead.

His April 2020 Dublin 3Arena date was cancelled because of the pandemic, as was a second attempt to play the venue in March last year.

Styles was one of the most high-profile younger artists to be affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. His album Fine Line was released in December 2019 and topped the Billboard 200, but he was unable to tour the album in 2020 or throughout most of 2021.

Styles’s Love On Tour gigs finally began in Las Vegas in September and he has played 42 shows in the US on the tour to date.

Ticket-holders for the Dublin 3Arena tour dates will be refunded and receive presale access for the June gig to ensure priority access to the Aviva Stadium concert.

The tour will continue in July with rescheduled arena dates in Europe, as well as a new show at Accor Arena in Paris, before concluding in Latin America later this year.

Tickets for the new show at the Aviva Stadium (subject to licence) go on general sale at 9am on Friday.
