Harry Styles has a huge fan base, and his fans in Glasgow were eager to see the One Direction star perform there. Instead, they had to witness a horrific scene as they saw a man falling from a third-tier balcony during the concert.
According to Edinburgh Live, the incident occurred on Saturday, June 11th, as the former One Direction member was performing at Ibrox Stadium in the city. The man fell from the top-tier Club Deck into a stand below before the event ended, according to the police.
The man’s health status is unknown, however, he is not thought to have been gravely hurt. He was treated on the spot by medics, and there were no unusual circumstances behind his fall.
The terrifying incident allegedly occurred as Harry Styles was performing his hit song Kiwi, according to fans. The sold-out show, which was the opening of his 32-city tour, drew nearly 50,000 spectators.
After watching the man’s fall, many people took to social media to express their concern. “Still in shock after @Harry_Styles concert @ibrox. A guy fell from the tier above onto the main stand one row in front of us. I had to run to main door at street level to bring help. Everyone in shock around us and so upset. Hope guy is OK,” wrote one user.
“We were a few rows back and I was looking straight that way when the person fell. Hopefully shielded my niece from the worst. I’m still in a bit of shock tbh. Hope the person is ok,” added another. A third person stated, “My 15-year-old saw the guy fall and thought it was a blow-up doll at first. Just horrific. Hope he and everyone else are ok. The horrible ending to a very special night.”
Some people even chastised the organizers of Mr Styles’ Love On Tour opening night, claiming that fans had to queue for hours to get into the venue. Stay tuned to Thirsty for further updates.
