The performance summed up the essence of the band‚ letting fans step into the light and discover who they really are. The sold out concert was not as unexpected as it had been during previous performances‚ but fans still had a great time. Over 65% of the audience dressed up for the concert‚ and the band complemented their outfits with elaborate costumes inspired by the Wizard of Oz. During the concert‚ Harry Styles performed in a blue checkered dress‚ cutthroat makeup‚ and a plush Toto in a basket. Among the many songs from Harryween‚ Somewhere Over the Rainbow was one of the highlights. The event was an incredible night of music. The crowds filled the arena two nights in a row. The show sold out and 65% of the audience wore costumes inspired by the movie Wizard of Oz. The show's set featured a wide range of costumes and props‚ and fans dressed up for every occasion.

It was chaotic to get into the venue.

Madison Square Garden can be found in Manhattan's middletown. Callie Ahlgrim According to Ticketmaster the doors will open at 7 p.m.‚ and the show will begin at 8. The demand was high‚ however. The exclusive Harryween T-shirt had limited availability and was sold out within minutes. The shirt was a must-have for me as a huge fan of Styles and band tees. I had been following Twitter throughout the day. Some people in line were told that they would be allowed in at 6:30 pm. I was therefore planning to get in on Friday at 6:15 pm. The venue was already packed when I got there. There were hundreds of people gathered around the entrances and nobody seemed to know where they should go. I had to battle through the crowd for 20 minutes before finally finding a security guard who pointed me in the right direction.

The interior was not much better than the outside‚ particularly near the merch stand.

This Harryween exclusive t-shirt went on sale for $55. Callie Ahlgrim Although the crowds became more calm and organized over the course of the day‚ the scene was chaotic when I arrived. People were running and jostling everywhere. Each floor had several merch stands‚ and each line was already populated by at least 50 customers as of 6:45 pm. The majority of Harryween posters and shirts were sold out. Although I did get one after waiting for 40 minutes in line‚ the three-size option was no longer available.

Similar lines waited to get photos.

Orange and black were used as decorations throughout the event. Callie Ahlgrimh Fans could take pictures of the backdrop‚ which included an orange couch and a skeleton. The line was at least 30 feet long when I saw it for the first time‚ and it remained that way for many hours.

The general admission section of the hotel was packed when I arrived at 8:15 p.m.

Section 113 was right next to the stage. I was there. Callie Ahlgrim Styles' other shows in this year were more similar to the Harryween show. His stage will usually be located in the middle section of the pit. Tickets for general admission can be purchased on either side of the pit‚ giving fans more access to the stage. Harryween's stage was located at the one-end of the pit to allow for more traditional arrangements. Fans with general admission tickets had to wait for hours in line outside the venue in order to get a better seat.

Although I was the only one there‚ I became friends with other row members.

Callie Ahlgrim‚ author and Callie the new friend. Callie Ahlgrim Harryween tickets were purchased by many fans more than a year before the event. Styles had announced that the event would return in 2020 The pandemic caused it to be postponed‚ however the original tickets were still valid. The demand for Styles tickets has risen in recent months. Stubhub listed Harryween's general admission tickets at upwards to 1‚000. They originally cost around 140. A friend of mine on Twitter helped me to purchase a ticket for section 113. Many Styles fans choose to barter directly with one another‚ forgoing third-party sites. This allows for cheaper prices and embodies Styles' ethos of kindness and treating people with kindness. Callie was the girl next to me. She had made the decision at last-minute to travel from Pennsylvania to see the concert with her three best friends. On the journey‚ they managed to purchase two sets of resale ticket. It is admirable.

Styles appeared on stage at 9:15 p.m. and the room began shaking.

Styles at Madison Square Garden Callie Ahlgrim Styles kicked off the evening with the opening track from his second album‚ Fine Line. The energy in the crowd was electric as Styles entered the stage. Everyone started to move as the music began. I felt the crowd flex and shake; I was right in my section and I thought about what might happen if they broke beneath me. A boxing match was held in the middle of Harryween's first broadcast. Hulu theater below‚

My name is Harry. He said‚ "Welcome to Harryween."

Styles addressed the crowd. Callie Ahlgrim Our job for the next 90 minutes is to entertain. He told the crowd before singing‚ "I promise you we were going to give our best." You also have one task tonight‚ and that's to have fun. He said that if you want to sing or dance in the room‚ you are welcome. You are free to do whatever you want in the room tonight.

Styles performed at a very mobile level‚ and I was concerned about sitting too close to the stage.

Styles were dressed in a frilly Pierrot clown costume. Callie Ahlgrim Styles' reputation for being a great performer is unmatched. Styles made it a point of moving around the stage and paying attention to every area. I was right behind the band but still enjoyed a fantastic view of him dancing and frolicking through the show. He even gave me kisses several times.

I loved his performance of Lights Up.

In 2019‚ Lights Up became a single. Callie Ahlgrim Styles was singing Lights Up from Fine Line. The crowd was lit up with multicolored dots as Styles performed. This was not an accident. This effect was created to honor Styles' message about self-acceptance. Styles assigned each section a color and distributed the paper to his fans. Styles shows are truly unique in the way they bring together people. The rainbow was a symbol of that sense of community (once merch is secured). This is a statement I make as someone who has been to over 100 concerts during my 26-years of existence. Many people traveled from across the country to Harryween. Every fan was able to sing every line. The pit performed an ingenious line dance during Treat People With Kindness. Styles‚ especially‚ could not stop smiling and sharing his joy.

Another highlight was his surprise performance in Medicine.

Officially releasing medicine has not been done. Callie Ahlgrim Although rumors had circulated that Styles performed Medicine at Sunday night's soundcheck‚ nothing could have prepared me for his sheer joy when he started playing the song during the encore. Styles rarely performs Medicine. This was recorded in sessions for Styles' debut album‚ but has never been officially released. You can listen or purchase a song not available on this site. Streaming it was quite shocking to see so many singing along with the service.
