Harry Styles fans have been warned against camping at the first show of his upcoming Australian Love On Tour at HBF Park, Perth, this Monday, 20 February.

As The West Australian reports, Venues West, which operates the stadium, said that camping would be prohibited for safety reasons. Fans who line up from the early hours of the morning won't have their spots honoured. 

"Any patrons queuing or camping prior to 8 am on event day will be asked to move," Venues West told the publication.

"It is surprising that HBF Park are being this strict with the camping rule, and I feel they could have gone about it better because now there will be a stampede of girls running to the gate at 8 am," concertgoer Jasmine Whitehead commented to WA Today.

"It would have been safer to let people camp."

Harry Styles just won Album Of The Year at the Grammy Awards.

During his performance of As It Was, which featured his band and a crew of dancers, the rotating turntable Styles and the dancers stood on malfunctioned and spun in the opposite direction on live television. Everyone had to improvise on the spot, putting awkwardness aside and remembering everything from rehearsals.

"What you don’t know is that the moment the curtain opened, and it was time to perform, our turntable started spinning in reverse," dancer Brandon Mathis claimed in an Instagram story (per Rolling Stone). "Backwards. Freaking all of us out on live television, and there was nothing we could do to stop it. In real time, we had to troubleshoot and try to do a complete piece in reverse. Talk about professionalism."

Donning a tinsel onesie, Harry Styles looked to be wearing an outfit by Brisbane designer Rachel Burke, who was commissioned to design a "birthday suit" for the global pop superstar.

Burke appeared on the Today show last week to discuss the opportunity of a lifetime. "Maybe a month ago, I had this email arrive in my Inbox, and it said 'Harry Styles birthday suit,'" she told the Today hosts Karl Stefanovic and Sarah Abo.

She added, "Harry Styles was performing in Palm Springs for his birthday, and I was commissioned to make him a birthday gift."

Burke also teased another appearance that would showcase her designs: "You might see something at the Grammys next week, too, which is very exciting."
