Harry Styles breaks Scottish stadium record
Harry Styles has broken the record for the highest-selling stadium concert in Scottish history, according to the venue.
The 29-year-old, who is represented by CAA, drew 65,000 fans to Murrayfield in Edinburgh this past Saturday – breaking the previous best of 64,000 that the singer set with One Direction in 2014.
“Saturday night’s Harry Styles concert is the highest-selling stadium concert in Scotland ever with an attendance of over 65,000,” says a spokesperson for BT Murrayfield, who adds that the DF Concerts-promoted event was “fantastic”.
Styles’ Live Nation-promoted Love on Tour was the fourth highest-grossing in North America last year, delivering US$160.4 million at the box office from 47 shows, according to Pollstar. The star was also 2021’s top worldwide ticket seller, selling 669,051 tickets for a total gross of $86,723,984.

The European leg continues this week with two shows at Stade de France in Paris (1-2 June), followed by three nights at Amsterdam’s Johan Cruyff Arena in the Netherlands (4-6 June).
The run then reverts to the UK and Ireland with dates at Slane Castle in Ireland (10 June), four shows at London’s Wembley Stadium (13-14 & 16-17 June) and a two-night stand at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium (20-21 June).
