The third time is a charm for Harry Styles concert in H-Town

Houston fans who'd been waiting since 2019 returned to Toyota Center wearing sequins, feathers, bell-bottoms and boots.

HOUSTON — The third time was a charm for Harry Styles in Houston Tuesday night.

The singer’s performance had been canceled twice since 2019, first because of the pandemic and again in September during Hurricane Nicholas.

His dedicated fans finally got what they had been waiting for when his Love on Tour 2021 stopped at Toyota Center.

Thousands of adoring fans wearing sequins, feathers, bell bottoms and boots camped outside for hours hoping to get a spot close to the stage.

Although it’s hard for her to describe, one fan told KHOU 11, there’s just something about Harry.

“He’s different,” said Nikki Sosa.

Others agreed.

“It’s just his essence,” said Rebecca Rhodes. “He’s just like, there. It’s the way he performs, it’s just like, the vibe.”

Rhodes and her friend Jenna Carter camped outside at 9 a.m. on Tuesday morning hoping to be among the first ones inside once the doors opened.

“We love Harry,” Carter said. “We’ve got to be at the front of the pit.”

Concert goers had to show proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test result to enter the Toyota Center.

Once inside, fans were had to stay masked up.

Fans say Styles’ music is for everyone.

“It always has a meaning to someone, no matter who it is,” Sosa said.

One man who came with his girlfriend for her birthday agreed.

“I don’t really mind, I’ve kind of liked Harry Styles for a while now, so I don’t mind,” he said.
