British rocker and former One Direction member, Harry Styles, who recently made a big splash on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ just announced his world tour dates and included on the roster is a show at ACL Live on October 11. Tickets to the show will go on sale May 5 at 10 a.m.
If that date seems suspiciously close to Austin City Limits Fest, that’s because it is. ACL Fest 2017 takes place on Oct. 6-8 and Oct. 13-15. The full lineup for the fest will drop and the next round of passes will go on sale next week, It’s worth noting that Styles’ tour schedule includes free dates on Oct. 6-7 and Oct. 13. The North American leg of his tour wraps up in Phoenix on Oct. 14. So yes, it’s possible that the young Brit rocker could also make an appearance in Zilker Park this year, although it would be quite unorthodox to roll out this date now if he was playing the fest.
Overall odds are not great that Styles will join the Lorde, Gorillaz, Paul McCartney extravaganza we’ve been speculating about.
Styles is scheduled to release his self-titled solo debut album on May 12.
