Barely six months after his sold-out show in Singapore at the Star Theatre on Nov 23, Harry Styles is set to return to Singapore for a second concert on May 3 next year and this time at an even bigger venue, the Indoor Stadium.
The Star Theatre has a capacity of around 5,000, while the Indoor Stadium has pulled in crowds of 10,000 in previous concerts.
Styles, who released his critically acclaimed, eponymous debut album last month, has added 56 new show dates to his world tour due to overwhelming demand. Tickets to his first solo Singapore show sold out within the first day. It was a similar case worldwide, with Billboard reporting that his tour dates sold out in seconds across 29 markets.

For his second gig in Singapore, he will be supported by Los Angeles indie rock band Warpaint. They will also play on his other Asian shows in cities including Manila, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Osaka and Tokyo.
Tickets for Harry Styles Live On Tour are priced at $98, $128, $158, $178, $228 for seats and $228 for standing tickets. Tickets go on sale on June 16 at 10am via SportsHubTix, the Indoor Stadium box office and all SingPost outlets.
Additionally, standing tickets are restricted to those aged 12 years and above. As with sales for the first concert, organiser Live Nation Lushington Singapore is limiting tickets to four per transaction, and tickets are strictly non-transferable.

In the United States, Styles' debut album topped the Billboard 200 album chart. He also made history with the biggest debut sales week for a British male artist's first full-length album since Nielsen Music began tracking sales in 1991.
Styles is also a member of One Direction, arguably one of the most successful pop acts in recent years. The group went on hiatus last year after releasing Made In The AM.
The other members of the group - namely Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and former member Zayn Malik - have all embarked on solo careers, to varying degrees of success.
