Most teenagers spend their Halloween night partying, but not this group. Over 100 Harry Styles fans are currently camped out outside the Manchester 02 Apollo awaiting the star’s first solo tour performance tonight.

With groups travelling from all over the world to see the heart throb live on stage, from Bolton to the Netherlands, they are keen to be part of his first ever solo tour, after his successful career with the world famous boy band One Direction.

Campers, some who have been out since Monday night, said it was worth the wait in the long overnight queues because they “wanted to be able to be so close that we can smell him”.

Another spokesperson said: “It’s a really exciting time for the girls to see him in his first solo tour. It’s a really special moment for them.”

Due to Kaleo’s gig at the O2 last night, the campers set up their tents in the field next to the venue and then moved to the front to grab their spot in the early hours of this morning.

The group pictured above arrived at the venue at 5am this morning, and joined 50 queuing fans who had got there first.

Situated behind barriers in holding areas, the groups are allowed to get their wristbands for the concert tonight, ensuring they have the best view of the stage.

With new singles such as ‘Kiwi’, ‘Meet Me in the Hallway’ and ‘Sign of the Times’, the pop star takes the stage at 9pm tonight, with doors opening at 7pm.
