iHeartRadio brought an exclusive Harry Styles concert to New York City’s Bowery Ballroom on Saturday, Feb. 29 at 7pm. The location, originally was a secret location, fans were not notified of the concert venue till the day of the show, as the event was branded as an iHeartRadio Secret Session with Harry Styles. The secret sessions concert was in celebration of Styles’ “most vulnerable” album, Fine Line, which was released via Columbia Records on Dec. 13.
Styles’ brought his captivating charm and infectious live energy to the secret sessions with a 6-song performance that included Fine Line tracks “Adore You,” “Falling,” “Golden,” and “Watermelon Sugar” as well as some tracks from his self-titled 2017 debut album that included, “Kiwi,” “Sign Of The Times.”
He kicked off his performance with the first track on Fine Line, “Golden,” before powering through to his latest single “Adore You.” with a massive sing-a-long from the fans who were lucky enough to score entry to the secret show. “Watermelon Sugar” then energized the crowd with it’s anthemic chorus that you can’t help but to sing a long to. Styles’ then telling the crowd that he was “going to play an oldie” when he went into his debut solo single “Sign Of The Times,” immediately following that, he perform “Falling” which sent fans into a frenzy of excitement because the music video came out earlier that week and fans absolutely adore the newly announced single.
Surprising fans, ending the evening with an encore of the fan-favorite hit “Kiwi,” which we really enjoy live as Styles’ changes it up, making it sound more rock-like and gets really into it, dancing around the stage and even splashing fans with water.
The event not only featured a live performance but also a live Q&A, in which Styles’ was interviewed by Tanya Rad from On Air With Ryan Seacrest to discuss his latest album, Fine Line. The interview and live performance were recorded for a 30-minute broadcast on iHeartRadio’s CHR and Hot AC radio stations across the country and Hit Nation on Sunday, March 1 at 7pm local time.
When asked about the meaning behind some of his songs, Styles’ replied: “I tend not to explain songs too much [because] I think it’s important to allow it to mean whatever it means to different people,” he explained, continuing to say, “I know there are songs that I’ve loved in my life when I find out it’s about something else, I’m almost like I wish I didn’t know that because it means so much to me. I think it’s amazing if people can relate to the music.” Styles’ spoke more on the vulnerability of the album and more in an exclusive interview with iHeartRadio, which you can read HERE.
