This was definitely unexpected, but Harry Styles has revealed Singapore to be one of many dates on his upcoming tour.
On Twitter (28/4), the One Direction member released his itinerary for 2017, including several dates in Europe and North America, but he'll only be performing in Singapore and Tokyo for Asia.
Ticket details are not currently available, but the singer will perform at The Star Theatre on November 23rd. The Singapore date follows a show in Milan on November 10th, possibly opening up for more dates in the region.

The singer is currently preparing the release of his debut self-titled album, with its first single 'Sign Of The Times' capturing the piano-driven, bombastic sound of 70s rock — a far cry from the vivid boyband pop of his main group, which is currently on hiatus.
UPDATE: Ticket details have been made available by organizers Live Nation Lushington — ticket prices are S$68, S$98, S$128, and S$168 for the all-seated venue (with an additional booking fee of S$4). Tickets will be released on May 5th at 9am through APACtix (10am for Hotline, Indoor Stadium Box Office and all SingPost outlets). Singapore will be the only Southeast Asian date on his tour.
In order to prevent ticket scalpers, each customer is only allowed a purchase of 4 tickets, which are 100% non-transferable. Identity checks will be carried out, and buyers must be present at the show with their guests. As Live Nation Lushington put it in the press release, "Purchasing of tickets on behalf of others is strictly not allowed."
Ticket buyers must present their valid photo ID/identity card/passport on show day in order to gain entry into the concert hall, so remember to bring your IDs — any ticket holders without proper identification won't be able to watch Harry do his thing onstage.
