Harry Styles: Everything you need to know about star's weekend gigs

The multi-platinum selling artist comes to Scotland on Friday, May 26, and Saturday, May 27.

Singer-songwriter Harry Styles is set to take the stage at Edinburgh’s BT Murrayfield Stadium for one of Scotland’s biggest music weekends of the year.

The multi-platinum selling artist comes to Scotland on Friday, May 26, and Saturday, May 27, less than a year after performing a sell-out show at Glasgow’s Ibrox.

Tickets for the two shows reportedly sold out within two minutes of going on sale – the Saturday date was added as a result.

Set list and support

Concert-goers can expect to watch the former One Direction star perform some of his biggest hits – As It Was, Watermelon Sugar, and even a throwback to his boyband days with What Makes You Beautiful.

The majority of songs Styles has played at recent gigs as part of the Love on Tour have been from his latest album, Harry’s House.

His support act, Wet Leg, will continue to support him throughout the UK leg of Love on Tour, as well as in Australia and New Zealand.

Entry and travel to the stadium

Entry and ticket checking will begin at 5pm, and those attending should plan ahead of time to avoid any unnecessary delays.

Fans have also been warned to ensure their tickets are printed out, after many attending BeyoncΓ©’s show at Murrayfield last weekend were unable to access their tickets via the Ticketmaster app.

Advice has also been issued by Scotrail, who warned fans that trains to the venue could be extremely full and to “plan ahead”.

The national operator will be running extra trains on Friday and Saturday in the capital, to ease some of the pressure on the railway network.

In addition to adding trains to the schedule after the concerts, it will also maximise the number of carriages on trains throughout the weekend.

The venue also asked fans to buy their tram tickets in advance where they could, to avoid large queues forming.

What can I bring?

Stadium authorities have warned that potentially dangerous items such as flares, glass or metal/hard plastic bottles, smoke canisters, flags, selfie sticks, umbrellas, weapons, frisbees/boomerangs will not be allowed into the gig.

Bags larger than a sheet of A4 size paper will also not be permitted, and all bags will be searched upon entry.

Exemptions apply for medical or childcare purposes, but all bags will be searched prior to entry.
