Harry Styles Moved to Tears As Gayle King Presents Him With Madison Square Garden Banner

Harry Styles wrapped his history-making 15-night residency at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night in tears. The “Late Night Talking” singer was surprised on stage by Gayle King towards the end of his set in New York City to receive a huge honor. 

“It’s Gayle King!” Styles effused as she took the stage, his eyes lighting up in surprise. Styles and King then embraced in a huge hug before King took over the mic. 

“We have a surprise for you,” she confessed. “We’re all in Harry’s House, right? 15th consecutive night of sold out shows. No artist has ever done that before.” 

Then, a gold banner with navy blue letters was raised. It reads, in jumbo font: “Harry Styles 15” with “15 Consecutive Nights at the Garden” underneath. 

Styles covered his mouth with has hand as he watched the signage go up, touching his heart briefly as he looked around at nearby fans. 

“We want to say ‘Thank you’ and, one final thing,” King concluded, referencing his “As It Was” opening line: “We just want to say goodnight to you, Harry!”

Styles responded with a laugh as he began to pace the stage, wiping away tears with his hand before grabbing a tissue. After regaining his composure, Styles offered a heartfelt thank you speech to everyone from the MSG staff, to his band and openers Blood Orange, to his personal friends and family.

“There’s a lot of people in the room tonight, on nights like this, that are so special for me and I just want to thank,” he said. “There’s so many people, again, tonight, who have supported me both professionally and personally throughout my life and I just want to say to all of you, thank you. I would not be on stage if it wasn’t for you. Thank you all so much.”

He continued, “I have so many incredible things to be lucky for in my life and I constantly continue to feel the most grateful and the most lucky for the people in my life. I want to thank you for being there for me.”

Addressing his fans, he encouraged them “to tell the people in your life who you love that you love them. Send time with them, it’s the most important thing in the world. Turn to the person next to you, tell them you love them.”

Of course, he also shouted out to his fanbase both old and new before taking his final bow of the residency.

“And finally, and most importantly, to each and every single one of you in this building tonight, I say thank you from the bottom, bottom, bottom of my heart,” he gushed. “Whether you’ve been supporting me for five minutes, one year, five years, twelve years — you have just changed my life over and over and over again and this is incredibly special.”

Styles’ latest string of shows has been filled with memorable moments, from paying tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II, to poking fun at his recent Spitgate controversy, to adorably dodging rogue chicken nuggets thrown on stage, to helping a fan pull off a proposal, to leading a Happy Birthday singalong for pal James Corden.
