A fan tossed a few chicken nuggets onstage during the pop star’s Love On Tour performance in New York City’s Madison Square Garden on Saturday, but according to fan footage posted on social media, Styles refused to eat them. Styles said, “Very interesting, very interesting approach,” when he noticed the fast food fragments on the ground. “Who threw the nugget of chicken?”
Styles inspected the stage while wearing an identical polka dot two-piece attire and grinned throughout the encounter, “There’s another chicken nugget!” “Eat it!” the audience shouted, but Styles swiftly stopped them. “Sorry, I don’t eat chicken. I don’t eat meat.” He informed the gathering before saying the same phrase again in Italian. After throwing the chicken nugget back into the audience, Styles added, “Here you go. You can have your nugget back.”
He then took the other nugget in his hand and added, First of all, this is cold. And I’m assuming, very old.” Styles chuckled as repeated cries of “Eat it!” from the crowd and then questioned the fan, “Would you like it back? Alright, here you go,” he said before throwing the nugget back into the crowd.
He pleaded with the member of the audience, “Don’t eat it. It is now on the ground. Don’t go looking for it. We’ll get you another nugget. Fear not, fear not.” “As It Was” by Harry Styles returns to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 singles list, rising from No. 2 for an 11th week in a row. It is the longest reign at the top since Roddy Ricch’s “The Box” spent 11 weeks at the top in January-March 2020. No song has held the number one spot for as long as Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road,” starring Billy Ray Cyrus, did from April to August of this year.
As part of his continuing Love On Tour, Styles is now putting on a total of 15 concerts at Madison Square Garden. The “As It Was” performer will do six gigs in Austin, Texas, then six concerts in Chicago after the NYC performances wrap up on September 21. The performer will then wrap out his North American portion of the tour with 15 performances at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, California, before departing for Latin America, Oceania, and Europe.
