Harry Styles Never Fails to Deliver Harryween

Harry Styles

Have you joined the Halloween spirit? Because Harry Styles did.

The My Policeman actor swapped his uniform for a sweet leather jacket, black jeans and a sleek haircut. Styles played Grease’s Danny Zuko. Of course, this isn’t the first time the actor dressed up. It is part of his annual “Harryween” concert celebration. 

Styles’ look pays homage to Danny’s last outfit in the 1978 film musical, but with a little Harry twist.The singer’s leather jacket and jeans are complete with bright red jewels on the back. The word “Harryween” was designed in. 

The award-winning artist didn’t just dress up as a fan-favorite greaser on Monday night.He also performed “Hopelessly Devoted to You” from the Olivia Newton-John movie in front of the sold-out Kia Forum. He headlined the concert with a splendid rendition.

Photos of Newton-John – who died in August – were shown on a large screen above.

Styles justifies Danny’s character throughout the night by referencing a few grease lines in his performance. His credits include combing his hair in “Satellite,” throwing a finger gun during “Daydream,” and performing a hand jive on “Adore You.”

Band Harryween

However, he wasn’t alone in dressing up for the spooky season. The singer’s band entered the fun with their Grease-inspired looks. 

Sarah Jones – the drummer – wore Sandy’s signature black spandex outfit. Meanwhile, Elin Sanberg – the bassist – portrayed Rizzo and Ny Oh – the instrumentalist played Frenchie. Mitch Rowland – the guitarist – played Coach Calhoun, while Yaffra – the keyboardist – portrayed Eugene Felsnic. And Pauli Lovejoy – the percussionist – donned a Pink Lady outfit. 

Styles created the tradition of Harryween. Last year, he played on two Halloween-inspired shows at the Madison Square Garden in New York. 

During the first night, Styles and the whole band rocked the stage as characters from The Wizard of Oz. Styles dressed as Dorothy and sang “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” 

The second night saw Styles wearing a Pierrot clown outfit – which Gucci designed. Furthermore, he played a cracker rendition of Britney Spears’ “Toxic.” 

Harryween has, therefore, become a signature event for Styles and his band.

X-Factor Start

Styles gained traction after he competed for The X Factor. Later, he exited the show with a boy band named One Direction. 1D was composed of Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and Liam Payne.

The band became one of the world’s most famous boy groups, selling smash hit after smash-hit. However, they announced an indefinite break in 2016, not long after Malik left the band. 

In 2017, the singer dropped his self-titled solo album via Columbia Records. The album debuted at the top spot in the UK and the US. Meanwhile, his second album, Fine Line (2019), debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200. 

Fine Line brought in the largest first-week sales by an English male artist title for Styles. In addition, the album made it to Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” in 2020. 

Styles earned several awards in his 6-year-long solo career. It includes two Brit Awards, a Grammy Award, an Ivor Novello Award, and an American Music Award. 

Furthermore, he has appeared in movies like 2017’s Dunkirk and 2022’s Don’t Worry, Darling and My Policeman.
