Harry Styles is one of the most popular solo artists in the world right now. The former One Direction member has developed a massive global fanbase, known as “Stylers”, who follow his every move. His recent album “Harry’s House” spawned major hits like “As It Was” and “Late Night Talking”, cementing his status as a modern pop icon.
Styles is currently in the midst of a massive world tour in support of his latest album. Called “Love On Tour”, it is Harry’s first global outing since 2018. The tour already hit major cities across North America, South America, Australia and parts of Europe. It is scheduled to continue through 2023.
One major question on the minds of European Stylers is: Will Harry Styles add more tour dates in Europe? Specifically, will he perform in Paris, France? Paris is one of the major music capitals of Europe and a significant tour stop for major pop stars. Many are hoping Styles schedules a concert date in the city.
Harry’s 2022 Tour Dates

Is Paris on his 2023 tour schedule?
Harry Styles has announced the first leg of his 2023 Love On Tour dates, from February to June. This leg will take him across Australia, Asia and Latin America. There are no shows yet announced for Europe in 2023.
However, given his popularity and tendency to tour heavily behind a new album, it is expected that a 2023 European leg will be announced soon. And when it is, Paris seems very likely to be on the schedule.
Styles has developed a big fanbase in France and Paris is a can’t-miss tour stop for pop stars of his caliber. His last solo tour in 2018 included a sold-out show at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris to over 10,000 fans.
So in conclusion – while Harry Styles has not yet announced any 2023 tour dates in Paris or anywhere else in Europe, history suggests it is very likely the city will be on the itinerary when further dates are revealed. Stylers in France can remain optimistic that Harry will serenade them with hits like “Watermelon Sugar” and “Adore You” sometime in 2023!
Harry Styles’ History in Paris
As a solo artist, Harry Styles has a short but notable history with Paris. Let’s take a look back at his previous trips to the City of Light:
In February 2018, around the release of his self-titled debut album, Harry did various promotional events in Paris. On February 13, he performed at the small Olympia concert hall for an audience of only 1,700 people. The next day, he taped an interview on French TV show Quotidien. He also visited the Eiffel Tower and posted a photo in front of it on Instagram.
In March 2018, Harry’s European tour in support of his first album included a stop at AccorHotels Arena in Paris on March 24. The concert was a smash success with a sold-out crowd of 10,000 fans singing along to hits like “Sign of the Times” and “Kiwi.”
In October 2019, Harry returned to Paris briefly to attend a Gucci fashion show. Gucci is one of his main fashion partners. While in the city, he did a photo shoot along the Seine River.
In February 2020, Harry spent time in Paris for a week of promotional appearances around the release of his second album Fine Line. On February 25, he did a special concert, “Harry Styles: Live on Tour 2020” at the intimate La Boule Noire rock club for only 1,700 people. He also guested on The Face magazine where he was asked about his love for the city of Paris.
From 2018 to 2020, Harry Styles has made sure to stop in Paris during all of his major promotional tours. His concerts have sold-out immediately, showing his popularity in the city. All signs point to more Paris dates coming when he announces further 2023 shows.
Harry’s Special Relationship with Paris
In interviews over the years, Harry Styles has expressed a deep fondness and appreciation for Paris and its culture. Here are some quotes that provide insight into his special relationship with the French capital city:
“I have a deep love for Paris. There’s something so unique about the city. It’s very inspiring.”
“The fans and crowds in Paris are amazing. The energy is really special. It’s definitely one of my favorite cities to perform in.”
“I love walking around Paris. There is so much history and art everywhere you look. It’s like being inside a living museum.”
“The fashion, the food, the cafes – everything about Paris allures me and draws me back each time.”
“Wandering around Paris feels so cinematic and dreamy. It’s one of my favorite cities in the world just to be in.”
Clearly, Paris holds a special place in Harry’s heart. The city’s cuisine, fashion, culture and romanticism all appeal to his tastes. He even has some lyrics referencing Paris on his recent album. This love affair surely means he’ll make Paris a regular tour stop for as long as his career lasts.
What Would a Harry Styles Paris Concert Be Like?
When Harry Styles does officially announce a 2023 concert in Paris, what can fans expect from the show? Based on past tours, here are some predictions:
Harry’s recent Love On Tour shows have featured state-of-the-art lighting, video screens and stage sets bringing his music to life. For an arena like AccorHotels in Paris, the production would be spectacular, on the scale of a major rock show. There would be costume changes, dancers, lasers, confetti and more.
His setlist would likely draw from both of his solo albums, plus some One Direction hits for good measure. Some songs likely to be played include:
– Adore You
– Watermelon Sugar
– Lights Up
– Sign of the Times
– What Makes You Beautiful
He varies his setlist but these have been concert staples.
Harry loves doing covers during shows. He may opt to do one or two fan favorites in Paris like:
– Girl Crush by Little Big Town
– Juice by Lizzo
– Somewhere Only We Know by Keane
Expect a loud, passionate crowd singing along to every word. Based on past tours, the audience will be primarily female and in their teens, 20s and 30s. There will be plenty of signs, costumes and light-up accessories throughout the arena.
There is always a chance Harry could bring out a surprise guest. As Paris is such a fashionable city, he may be inspired to invite French designer friends like Hedi Slimane onto the stage. Or perhaps he’ll do a song with opening act Ben Mazué.
Harry’s Love Life and Romantic Links to Paris
As a handsome, single pop star, there is always much speculation and attention on who Harry Styles is dating. His romantic life has had links to Paris in the past:
From 2017-2018, Harry dated French-American model Camille Rowe. They met in Paris while Harry was touring. Rowe is a Paris native and he was photographed holding her hand in Paris. His song “Cherry” is rumored to be about their romance.
Harry briefly dated Lou Teasdale, a stylist and makeup artist from 2010-2011. They toured Paris together with One Direction. Teasdale is from Paris and studied fashion there.
Many fans believe songs like “Carolina” and “Canyon Moon” were inspired by trips to Paris. Harry has never confirmed this.
Paris has certainly been a place of romance and passion for Harry over his career. This will likely inspire him to keep returning to share his musical love with the city.
How Quickly Will Paris Tickets Sell Out?
If and when Harry Styles announces a Paris concert date for 2023, it will undoubtedly be one of the hottest tickets in Europe. Based on massive demand in previous cities, how quickly could Paris sell out?
Past Sell Outs
On past tours, Harry has routinely sold out arena shows in minutes. In 2018, he sold out a London show in 30 seconds. For his 2022 tour, the average sell out time in various cities was under 5 minutes.
The demand in Paris for Harry should be massive. He has not performed there since 2018 and his popularity has grown enormously since then. Stylers in France will be hungry for tickets. Scalpers also know how huge the demand is, unfortunately.
Barring any technical issues, if Harry announces a Paris date, it is easy to foresee tickets selling out in 1 hour or less. Given the city’s love for Harry, 10,000 seats could vanish in 10 minutes or under. It would be wise for fans to be on their computers ready to go the instant sales begin. This show will be tough to get!
How Much Would Paris Tickets Cost?
What is the potential price range for tickets if Harry Styles ends up scheduling a concert in Paris in 2023? Based on pricing in other European cities, here are some predictions:
|Lower Level Seats
Of course, prices can fluctuate depending on the exact venue and demand. Official Platinum seats priced dynamically could exceed €400-500. Resale prices on secondary markets often double or triple face value.
By comparison, when Harry visited in 2018, nosebleeds were around €40, lower level seats €80, and floor seats €120. Prices have gone up substantially, but so has his fame.
While expensive, concert tickets are Harry’s hottest currency right now. For the die-hard Stylers of Paris hoping to see their idol live, cost is no barrier to an unforgettable night singing and dancing alongside Harry!
Who Might Open for Harry in Paris?
If Harry Styles headlines a major Paris arena in 2023, he’ll likely recruit an up-and-coming musician as his opening act, like he has on past tours. Here are some guesses as to who could open for him in Paris:
French singer-songwriter Ben Mazué would be an ideal choice. He opened for Harry in several French cities back in 2018. Mazué’s soulful pop would set the stage well. As a France native, fans would embrace him.
British pop singer Griff has opened for Harry during his 2022 tour. With hits like “One Night” and “Black Hole,” she could deliver a strong opening set. She also has the vocals to cover Harry’s songs.
American singer Madison Beer is rising on pop charts with songs like “Baby” and is gaining a following. She and Harry also share the same record label. Madison could win over fans in Paris.
They aren’t a typical opener choice, but UK rockers Wolf Alice have some buzz after winning the Mercury Prize. Their grungy alt-rock sound would bring a different energy.
Britfolk singer-songwriter Jade Bird is another hot up-and-comer Harry could tap. Her voice blends pop and country-rock. She’d bring a singer-songwriter vibe to the show.
Setlist Harry Should Perform in Paris
If Harry Styles ends up scheduling a Paris show on a future tour, what would be an ideal setlist he could perform? Here is a hypothetical 20 song setlist combining his hits, deep cuts and covers:
2. Adore You
4. Lights Up
5. Canyon Moon
7. Watermelon Sugar
8. Girl Crush (Little Big Town cover)
12. Fine Line
13. TPWK / What Makes You Beautiful (One Direction songs)
15. Sign of the Times
16. Love of My Life
18. Late Night Talking
19. As It Was
This setlist samples tracks from both of Harry’s albums, includes beloved covers and One Direction hits, flows smoothly and builds to an epic ending. Playing these songs in Paris would give fans an unforgettable experience!
