The rush of seeing new tours dates can only be matched with seeing who the support act will be, and it is just the best feeling when it’s an artist who you love as equally as the main act. As I’m sure the whole world is aware, Harry Styles released his summer Love on Tour dates recently, and his support acts did not disappoint. Harry has chosen some amazing and established indie acts to open for him. I am sure 1000s of people will be discovering these acts for the first time at the Love on Tour shows. So, here is a guide to these acts, including their there must know tracks and hidden gems to get you ready for your LOT shows.
Albums: Collapsed in Sunbeams
Must know tracks: Black Dog, Hurt, Caroline,
I have mentioned Arlo Parks a few times on TFGL, and for good reason. She is one of the most exciting and fresh acts of the past few years with poetic and truthful lyrics. Be ready for an emotional performance with songs like black dog, and a fun crowd moment in Caroline. Arlo Parks released a new single Softly recently, so by this summer we may have a whole new album to enjoy, watch this space!
Must know tracks: Don’t delete the kisses, Smile, Bros
Off the back of their most recent stint of live shows, I am so excited to see Wolf Alice support Harry in Europe. They are high energy and I think with get the crowd going crazy with songs like “all the greatest hits” and then emotional in the next moment with songs like “Safe from heartbreak”. I think the whole arena is going to be crying from seeing “don’t delete the kisses” live (I will be for sure). It’s great to see such a well like a respected indie band supporting Harry, and I am sure they are going to gain so many fans from this tour.
Must know tracks: Working for the knife, Nobody, Washing machine heart
Another act that has been mentioned on TFGL before. Mitski has a dedicated following, and I am sure lots of very happy fans who will want to see both Harry and herself. With a slow and soulful feeling, I think she will be a great act as the calm before the storm of Harrys performance. Must know tracks include “Nobody” which was been popular on TikTok and will likely go down well, and newest popular single “Working for the knife”. Mitski has in fact covered the 1D song Fireproof on a few occasions, it is so beautiful (Check it out here). I am praying she does this at LOT, and who knows – maybe she will bring harry out one night to join in (let’s form a prayer circle!).
Albums: Rapture EP
Must know tracks: Toast, Pull up, Rapture
Koffee is a relatively new artist, at 22 years old and first coming into the music scene in 2018. Despite this she one of her first eps has already won a Grammy for the best reggae album – making her the youngest recipient of this award, and the only female to ever win. With a run of loads of small shows across the UK and the USA before going on tour with Harry, I’m sure she will be a great opener, bringing a new style of music before the main performance. Also, Koffees’ debut album is out on the 25th of March, so that will be a great introduction to her music for new listeners!
