and live on Freeview channel 276
Nineteen-year-old Olivia Ingham was among the 80,000 fans who queued for seven hours to see the singer at the stadium on Tuesday.
Keen to get as close as possible to the former One Direction band member, Olivia and her friend Steph Hewitt (18) were lucky enough to secure tickets in one of the standing pods close to the stage. And it was when the chart topping star strode out on the catwalk section of the stage that Olivia threw her pink heart shaped sunglasses up to him.
Media student Olivia said: “He strode along the stage and appeared to be looking right at me, and he smirked because I must have looked very shocked. That’s when I thought ‘I have to throw him my sunglasses.’ ”
Not only did Harry catch the sunglasses, he wore them to strut around while singing his hit song Music for A Sushi Restaurant, before returning them to an ecstatic Olivia.
“It all seemed to go by in a flash, “ said Olivia who even managed to grab some ace photos of the singer in her Primark ‘sunnies’ which she had customised with some diamante sparkles.
And Steph caught the entire spectacle on video as a lasting memory for the pals. A fan of Harry since she first saw him perform with One Direction on The X Factor TV reality show when she was only six, this is the fourth gig Olivia, who lives with her mum and dad Kevin and Jenette, has attended.
The star’s debut album in 2017 went straight to number one in the UK and the USA and was one of the world's top-ten best-selling albums of the year. His string of hits include ‘Watermelon Sugar’ and ‘Sign Of The Times.’ He has won six Brit Awards, three Grammys, an Ivor Novello Award and three American Music Awards.
Speaking about the star’s appeal to a generation of fans Olivia said: “He is not afraid to be himself and is close to his mum and his family which a lot of people find comforting. There is nothing toxic about him, he is just a beautiful person.”
