Now that Harry Styles' first world tour has come to an end, we can look back at the musician's epic debut as a solo artist in absolute awe. Harry Styles Live On Tour has not only proved to be an incredible concert experience for attendees, as well as those following the tour on social media, but it has also been a revolutionary tour with a meaning and truly has helped to make the world a better place. 

 

First, there is 'Treat People With Kindness.'  The ultimate message that defined this tour. Harry's motto has been absorbed by every single venue of the 25 countries he and his band have played and has continued on its due course long after a concert has finished. Harry's agenda is simple: spread love. 'Treat People With Kindness' is there to do just that. It serves as a simple reminder to Styles' fans that they should put love and kindness first, and to continue to spread the message to everyone they come into contact with. With such a powerful influence across the globe, Harry could not have picked a better 'slogan' to define himself with, especially in a society where there is still a lot of greed and hatred. And because the singer's fan base keeps spreading, he truly is inspiring a growing population to be nicer to one another and put compassion above all else.

The power that TPWK has is not just limited to a message that fans can take home and wear on t-shirts, sweatshirts, and bags. It has been used to benefit many local causes. For the second part of the tour, merch stands sold exclusive 'Treat People With Kindness' hair tie sets, from which 100% of the profits, along with a percentage of ticket sales, went towards a chosen charity in each city, all the way from The Basel Region Childhood Cancer Foundation in Basel, Switzerland, to the Time's Up campaign in Los Angeles, USA.  This proves that 'Treat People With Kindness' has a positive impact across many different causes, actively helping areas that need support. Altogether the tour raised $1.2 million for these causes.

Harry has also used his first solo tour as a means of showing his open support and encouragement of equality, in all areas. He is most famously known for being a huge ally of the LGBT community, waving pride flags on stage each night and declaring that "love is love", making anyone who is part of the community feel safe and confident to be who they are.


In his interview with Rolling Stone in 2017, Harry put out a special dedication to his female fans, stating: "They're our future. Our future doctors, lawyers, mothers, presidents, they kind of keep the world going." This support of his young female fans has continued throughout the tour, where Harry has persistently reminded his audience how honored he feels to play in front of a strong group of women every night, hitting back at anyone who tried to ridicule the fact that his fan base is largely made up of girls in their teens and early twenties.

 

The musician has also used this tour as an opportunity to show his open support for Black Lives Matter, also proudly waving the flags and responding to the BLM signs brought by fans with "Yes they do!"

With gun control being a huge political topic right now, especially in the US, Harry has decided to show his support for tighter gun control and remember the victims of mass shootings in the US. Although not being present for the March For Our Lives demonstrations taking place earlier this year, Harry and his band have sent their love and support via social media, while on tour in Oberhausen, Germany.

 

 

While in Florida last month, the singer strayed away from wearing his usual bold look, and instead went for a simple dark suit, only decorated by an orange ribbon, in respect for the victims of the Parkland shooting, and the gun control movement. This was a particularly strong statement considering that Florida still has some of the weakest gun laws in the US.

Harry Styles Live On Tour has also played a huge role in helping the environment. Harry and his team have focused this tour on sustainability, with initiatives to try and reduce the use of plastic and promote water conservation. And the result? Harry, his fans, and his team have saved the equivalent of 13'200 single-use water bottles and recycled over 6'500 gallons of water from tour facilities (as reported by Variety). One fan took to Twitter to tell of a conversation they had with a crew member, who described how the entire team has worked to minimize plastic on the tour.

 

 

Harry has also made clear he wants his fans to be active in politics; to stay informed and make the right decisions as an electorate, potentially inspiring a youth-driven rebellion against the current state of politics. This year, voter registration booths were put in a number of venues during the American leg of the tour, encouraging those over eighteen to play a part in deciding their future. This has led to hundreds of newly registered voters over the course of the twenty-three dates that Harry has played in the US these past two months.

 

Last but not least, Harry's first mark as a solo artist will be made even more memorable thanks to the amazing outfits he blessed us with each night. Styled by Harry Lambert, Styles made every show that much more interesting by surprising concert-goers with a new ensemble each time he played a new city. Serving looks in every color, print, and texture, from designers like  Gucci, Alexander McQueen, and our new favorite: Harris Reed,  Harry made his image just as glamorous as his stage presence. It's not just that his outfits were fun and made each night different, but along the way, Harry has inspired his fans to experiment with their style as well, encouraging them to put on their best clothes and wear what makes them happy as they attend his show. Harry Styles Live On Tour served as space for fans to be creative and adventurous, following in their idol's footsteps.

It's safe to say this tour has had an amazing impact across the world, and now we are even more excited to witness the next step of the singer's solo career and how he will continue to use his incredible influence.
