Harry Styles has broken the record for the highest-selling stadium show in Scotland as more than 65,000 fans flocked to see him perform, according to the gig venue.

The former One Direction star sang his biggest hits including As It Was to crowds on Friday and Saturday at the BT Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh.

Promoter DF Concerts said Saturday night’s show sold a “phenomenal number” of tickets for one artist.

They tweeted: “Saturday night’s Harry Styles concert at BT Murrayfield is the highest-selling stadium concert in Scotland ever with an attendance of over 65,000.

“Thanks to every single one of you for a fantastic evening.”

Video footage from the gig, which was posted on social media, showed fans chanting “No Scotland, no party!” as Styles said it back to them from the stage.

The Watermelon Sugar singer was the second megastar to perform on the Murrayfield stage this month, with Beyonce entertaining thousands on 20 May in the pouring rain.

Bruce Springsteen is set to perform at the stadium on Tuesday, with transport bosses warning fans to plan their journeys accordingly.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail head of customer operations, said: “We’re doing what we can to help music fans travel to see Bruce Springsteen perform at BT Murrayfield on Tuesday, and I am delighted we have been able to add more seats and some extra trains to help people enjoy the occasion.

“I’d encourage customers to travel to the stadium early as trains will be much busier than normal.

“Our advice to anyone travelling is to plan ahead and allow extra time for travel to and from the concert.”

He added: “Buying return tickets in advance on the ScotRail app or website will minimise your need to queue and help your day run smoothly.”
