Harry Styles’ tour may have ended a few months ago; however, on a ten month tour with 90 tour dates (one of which I attended here in NYC). On tour, he started a movement called, “Treat People with Kindness.”
With around 89 sold out shows (according to Variety), and a little under a million tickets sold, it does not surprise me that he donated $1.2 Million to various charities.
According to Live Nation, Harry Styles did this:
- First arena tour to sell out through Ticketmaster’s new Verified Fan program, with the first leg selling out in 29 seconds
- The second of the two final shows at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., tallied more than 17,000 paid tickets and beat the record for most paid tickets for a single show since the venue reopened in 2014
- Merchandise records set in over 50 venues in North and South America, Australia and Europe
His tour impacted:
- Registered hundreds of new voters via Headcount
- Made a major effort for water conservation that:
-saved the equivalent of 10,000 single-use water bottles by fans and 3,200 by the band and crew
-recycled more than 6,500 gallons of water from buses, offices, dressing rooms and other backstage areas
-led to more than 5,000 direct connections between fans and the local charities
According to Harry’s Website, he donated to local charities like, March for Our Lives, Times Up, Donors Choose, City Year Boston, and many more.
