After months, even a year or more, of no concerts, limited entertainment, and restrictions on most everything, one Eagle’s Eye staff member goes out and about, participating in her dream of seeing Harry Styles in person.
September 29, 2021 was my first “date” with Harry Styles. Harry’s first out of two shows in Nashville, Tennessee finally had a set date after being rescheduled for over a year because of COVID-19. My mom, her friend, my sister, and I all had pit tickets for the show. For us, this wasn’t just a normal concert. We spent months planning outfits, learning the Bridgestone rules, and of course, listening to his music. The day finally arrived after being a fan for eight years! This moment is what I’ve been waiting for nearly my entire life.
When the day arrived, we went to Bridgestone Arena just after sunrise to get in line for numbered wristbands. I was filled with adrenaline from the start. These wristbands guaranteed us our place in line for later in the day at 4:00 o’clock when we would have to line back up according to our number. After a lot of standing in lines and running to get a good spot in the pit, 20,000 people, including me, finally got to see the person we’ve been waiting for. Styles put on an amazing show singing hits like “Sign of the Times” and “Watermelon Sugar.” Two hours of music never went by faster for me. I can’t wait for our second date!
