Collective Effervescence - a feeling of belonging and assimilation produced by collective ritual action (a term coined by Emile Durkheim).

This describes how I felt at Love On Tour when I was there because there were so many special moments that 70,000 people at Wembley Stadium were all experiencing together. Being in a room with that many people who are feeling joy at the same time over the same thing is really something magical.

We went to see Harry at Wembley on Night 2 (14th June) and were in the front standing section and the three of us who went collectively decided we weren't going to queue for ages and try to get to the front because it was 30 degrees and way too hot to be pressed up against other people. So, we were near the back of front standing, in the middle, and still managed to have an amazing view, while also having space to keep cool and dance.

We arrived just before the support act Wet Leg came on. I knew two of their songs and they were pretty good, but I was mainly interested in the main event - Harry.

I also have to mention the outfits because there were so many amazing ones and the majority of Harry fans came to SLAY. Props to them because it was too hot for me to wear my original outfit so I ended up wearing a top and shorts but there were still lots of cowboy hats, cowboy boots, feather boas, and leather trousers even in the 30-degree heat.

Harry came on at around 8:30pm and started off with Daydreaming (full setlist to follow). Because we were so close and had such a good view it was even more surreal.

To our excitement as One Direction fans back in the day, Harry played not one, but two One Direction songs - Stockholm Syndrome, and their debut, What Makes You Beautiful.

It was the most fun concert I've been to, there was a gender reveal (it's a girl!) many conga lines, and my personal highlight was the incredible firework display during Sign of the Times.

I feel like being standing meant that we were more part of the magic and I'm so glad we got front standing.

Overall, it is one of the best concerts I have been to (if not the best) up there with Beyonce who I saw in the same month?! They were both so different but amazing. I understand why the tour is called Love On Tour because while I was there and after leaving my heart just felt so full.

Harry was right when he said his shows are like group therapy. If £115 is the price I have to pay for a great view, an amazing show with a bit of therapy thrown in there then that is money well spent!

Who's the best person you've seen live?


  1. I'm so jealous of anyone who went to see Harry Styles, everybody I know who has seen him said he was amazing! x

  2. Collective Effervescence is such a beautiful term and it's SO true when it comes to concerts and things. There's nothing quite like music to bring people together. Glad you had a fab time x

  3. I've heard so many good things about Harry's concerts and how he is a great performer and person; it sounds like you had an incredible time. I'd love to see him as I think coming away feeling like you did is a wonderful experience to have!
