Harry Styles has been compared to the late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury after his ‘mesmerizing’ string of gigs.
The singer, 28, has been wowing audiences across the world with his Love On Tour show – with former One Direction bandmate Niall Horan among the faces in the crowd at his London show on Sunday.
While Niall grabbed the attention of onlookers in the corporate box, it was Harry who wowed his fans as he put on such an incredible show – with some concertgoers comparing him to Freddie, who was known for his flamboyant performances before his tragic death in 1991.

Those present said that Harry had his very own ‘Freddie Mercury moment’, referring to the singer’s most famous show at Live Aid in 1985 where he had an unforgettable back and forth with the crowd.
A video from the concert shared by fans shows the hitmaker showing off his vocal range as he imitates the famous moment, with fans singing back to him just as they did with Freddie at Live Aid.
Some fans even believe that Harry’s meteoric rise as a solo popstar has eclipsed his former boyband’s level of fame and is now even bigger than One Direction ever was.

As well as the video, a fan at the show explained what was happening at the time: ‘He was having his’ Freddie Mercury at Live Aid’ moment, with the whole of Wembley Stadium in his hands and singing back his work. You could see how he moved. ‘
Meanwhile another added: ‘I have been fortunate to have lived long enough to experience both Freddie and Harry. I believe Harry would never compare himself to Freddie. However, they both have a way of mesmerizing an audience and leaving us hanging on the edge of our seats to see what they’ll do next. ‘
Other fans were also arguing that Harry is now even bigger than One Direction, one suggesting: ‘In 2017, harry styles said he was okay that he may never reach the level of stardom that he achieved with one direction. Now in 2022, he’s the biggest song in the world, he’s playing sold out stadiums, and he knows we’re so proud of him. Harry reached it. And even more. ‘
Another said: ‘I’m sure when he tried out for the X-Factor he never imagined playing sold out stadium shows. Look how far sweet Harold has come !!! So proud of him! ‘
