Harry Styles canceled his Sunday night performance at Copenhagen’s Royal Arena after a shooting took place at a near shopping mall less than a mile away. The shooting has left three people dead.
The British pop star was scheduled to sing at Royal Arena on Sunday night as part of his “Love on Tour” which was postponed twice due to the coronavirus pandemic. He was ready to perform 127 shows. Harry Styles was seen touring Europe with his longtime friend and stylist Harry Lambert, who has been dressing the pop star in custom Gucci styles.
Styles took to Twitter to express his sorrow that he was heartbroken and devastated over a deadly shooting. Harry Styles cancels the Copenhagen show after shooting near Shopping Mall at the Royal Arena. He announced the show would no longer be happening, citing the tragedy.
The “Sign of the Times” and “Watermelon Sugar” singer said:
“I’m heartbroken along with the people of Copenhagen,” he tweeted. “I adore this city. The people are so warm and full of love. I’m devastated for the victims, their families, and everyone hurting. I’m sorry we couldn’t be together. Please look after each other.”
Three people lost their lives in the shooting that happened in the late afternoon on Sunday at Field’s, one of the famous shopping malls in Scandinavia. Four people were also found critically injured, according to Danish police. The 22-year-old Danish male was caught opening fire on Sunday afternoon. Later on, the police arrested the young man and charged him with manslaughter.
“We are convinced that the man we arrested is the perpetrator. He had in his possession a rifle, and he had in his possession ammunition for that rifle.” Cops with the Copenhagen police, Soren Thomassen told The Times. The victim’s family demanded “unity and care” after the shooting, which was extremely deadly in Denmark since February 2015.

At his Oslo show, last month, the British pop singer addressed his LGBTQ fans during the concert. He brought into the discussion after a gunman opened fire during the Pride festival in the city two weeks earlier.
“I just want to tell you that I’m very sorry and I hope you all feel safe in here with each other,” said Styles to his fans in Oslo.
“The thing that I am most proud of in my life is getting to play in front of such an incredible, loving group of people every night. It is an honor, I thank you so much”, he continued, “The atmosphere that you’ve created here, allows people to feel safe and to be themselves, and I know that in difficult times, it is hard to feel like you can make a difference, and I promise you that each and every single one of you can make a difference by the small choices, the tiny choices that you make every day to be that little bit kinder to someone, to do that little bit extra for someone — it makes the difference”
Styles encouraged his fans even in the darkest times. He advisedly said to his fans to love more, give more, embrace more, and be kind more.
