He’s usually the one bringing us to tears—and yet here we are. Nearly two years after he began his Love On Tour world tour, the ever charming and charismatic Harry Styles was brought to his knees in front of a packed stadium in Reggio Emilia in Italy on July 22 as he sang his final set.
In a spangly flares-and-vest duo, the 29-year-old singer-songwriter sincerely thanked his fans for their support, and encouraged them to “put love out into the world”.
“I don’t get to do this if you guys don’t come,” Styles told the audience. “I know that more than anyone else. You guys being here tonight, I know you wanted to make it special for me. You make it special for me every single night.
“The atmosphere that you have created, the family that you have created, this safe space that you have created,” he said during his speech. “I want to thank you for everything.”
“I know feeling so incredibly small in this world, it can be really, really difficult to feel like anything you can do can make a difference.
“I promise you, I see it all the time in the little things that you do and the way that you treat each other. How it has affected all the people around me, how it has affected people out there, it is so much bigger. It does not end when this tour ends.
“I want you to continue it. Put love out into the world. It needs it a bit right now. I love you all so much, and I’m gonna miss you. I will be loving you so, so much. If you’ve been supporting me for one year, five years, 13 years, whatever it is, not only have you changed my life over and over again, but you’ve made me the happiest. I’m so thrilled and happy to be here tonight. I’m so, so happy.”

To close out his show at the RCF Arena Campovolo, and to wrap his tour, Styles performed a new song at the piano, which, so far, doesn’t have any lyrics. You can watch the 10-minute performance below.
The tour began in Las Vegas in September 2021 and has become one of ten highest grossing tours of all time. According to Billboard, Styles has travelled to five continents and has earned USD$600 million (AUD $891 million) from his shows.
