Harry Styles is a true renaissance man. He can sing, he can write pop hits, he’s dashingly handsome enough to be in movies. And, oh yeah, he might just be ready to join the circus if all this doesn’t work out. In the middle of his headlining gig at the O2 Arena in London on Thursday night (Apr. 12), Styles reacted to fans chucking an endless stream of gummy bears onto the stage by explaining that if he started eating them he wouldn’t be able to sing the songs they came to hear.
So they reached a compromise: “you can do one in my mouth and then the game’s over,” he offered salaciously, warning “and only throw Haribo. Okay?” And then it happened. Standing center stage in his baggy golden suit, Styles put his arms to the side, opened his mouth and expertly caught a flying gummy candy launched from the front rows. And the crowd went wild as he dropped to his knees, smiled and thanked the gummy gods.
“I cannot tell you how relieved I am that went in,” he joked, moving on to the important business of giving a few birthday shout-outs. Styles is in the midst of his world tour in support of his 2017 self-titled solo debut, with a show Saturday night (Apr. 14) at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow and another in Dublin on Apr. 16 before he makes his way to Australia.
