To the people trying to defend Harry and his team regarding tour: please stop.
They had ample opportunities to announce things (literally anything) or even send out an email stating that due to the on going pandemic tour dates are still being finalized and are tentative. Stop trying to make people feel bad for spending money on tickets when this show was suppose to be almost a year ago. People have a right to treat themselves and experience things.
And it’s not just a matter of “you can resell the ticket or just get a refund”. No. People have hotels, flights, etc. so many fans aren’t fortunate enough to live in one of the 30+ big cities he’s touring and need to travel so kindly get off your high horse. I had to sell my NYC tickets back in June of last year cause I couldn’t afford them anymore.
The lack of communication from everyone involved (CAA, Ticketmaster, HSHQ, Harry) is disrespectful and disheartening. So many other artists have been able to reschedule and announce it without a problem and Harry and his team have the platform and money to do it all so I don’t want to hear it.
This is his job. He sold a product/service and now is refusing to confirm/deny what’s happening with it.
Let people hold them accountable. LET PEOPLE HOLD HARRY ACCOUNTABLE.
Update: While I think postponing part of tour was the right thing to do, (albeit postponing all of tour to 2022 would be best) everything isn’t fixed with 3 tweets and Instagram post promising new music.
That’s absolute bull and I’m sorry if you get sucked into it. Harry didn’t write that tweet, his team wrote that.
The language is so perfectly crafted to not offend anyone and promise just enough to keep people at bay. I write social copy all the time and you’re trained to do this. Harry didn’t write it (he most likely gave it a once over and gave them a thumbs up to post), his team did and people deserve more than just a post.
Ticketmaster won’t let people resell tickets, travel accommodations are ruined... they’ve had months (you don’t get a new tour date in 2 weeks) and it’s a mess for so many people (on top of just canceling the Canada dates a month away). This is all absurd.

"I spoke to Harry, really a lovely call, he has a sixth sense for if I'm struggling or if one of us is in trouble, I spoke to him and it was a really lovely catch up. I have a lot of love for the man, he's really, really great."
-Liam talking about catching up with Harry recently. (2 June 2021)
