It’s a common enemy, Harry Styles, that has united Colombian football fans used to hurl insults at each other on the terraces. Bogotá’s football stadium will host either the Colombian championship final, or the latest leg of the British pop star’s world tour on 27 November.
After pop star Dua Lipa’s show there last weekend was plagued with logistics and technical difficulties, fans started a social media campaign to have Styles’ concert moved. Fans complained of crushing, poor sound, and, ironically, a lack of parking at Dua Lipa’s car park concert. People outside the show were able to see and hear better than those inside.
People were forced to come down from trees outside the venue while organisers tried to obscure the view with bin bags in vain. When we saw the videos of Dua Lipa’s concert, knowing that it was held in the same place and by the same people as Harry’s concert, we were really upset.
From Pasto, a town near the Colombian-Ecuadorian border, Leidy Escobar will drive her daughter 24 hours to see Styles in the capital. Harry’s fans should be taken care of, but most importantly, he should be taken care of as a great artist because this isn’t right for him.
