The reigning king of British pop music is teaming up with another equally powerful royal. On Wednesday, Harry Styles announced that queer indie musician King Princess will be his opener for the upcoming Love on Tour, a 27-city trek across Europe that kicks off next year. The two will presumably be having a contest to see who can dress wear the most Capital-L Lesbian outfit at each tour date.
This is going to be one of the gayest, most fashionable tours in the history of gay and fashionable tours. King Princess recently released the album Cheap Queen and is one of the best dressed lesbians in all of pop music, while Styles just released the first single off of his upcoming album Fine Line, "Lights Up," which features a blindingly bisexual music video in which Styles wears fabulous sequins suits and writhes in a sweaty crowd of men and women. Such tingles!
The former One Directioner first established himself as a fan of the lesbian pop rocker back in 2018 with a simple and cryptic tweet that read, "I love it when we play 1950." When fans googled the phrase, they found themselves looking at the lyrics for King Princess' breakout single "1950." Now the two are finally working together. Such is the power of Twitter.
Love on Tour includes a whopping 63 dates so far across North America and Europe, starting April 15 in Birmingham, United Kingdom. Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis opens for the U.S. dates, with Koffee joining him in Mexico. Styles still has a South American leg of the tour to announce this year, and Asian and Australian dates that will be revealed in 2020. It's not known who will be opening on those dates, but here's hoping it's another queer star like King Princess.
