Madison Cunningham reveals how she came to support Harry Styles on tour
Madison Cunningham has revealed that Harry Styles slid into her DMs to ask her if she would be his support act on tour.
The 24-year-old singer-songwriter admitted she was completely shocked when he dropped her a message to tell her he loved her debut album Who Are You Now and asked her if she would support him at his Harryween Madison Square Garden gigs in October, which have now been postponed due to Covid-19.
Madison said: "It was totally crazy! I was in the middle of a tour with Iron & Wine earlier this year and out of the blue I got a direct message from Harry himself. He was like, 'I just wanted to reach out and say that I really love the record and I would love to connect at some point.' I was, of course, blown away. I couldn't have imagined that my record would have made it into his world.
"Then he said from there, 'I don't want to be forward but I would love it if you would somehow be involved in my touring this year.'
"So that's how it ended up coming about! None of us expected that. I've not met him yet, but from the way he's communicated he's just such a sweet guy and really [cares] about giving other people opportunities.
"That's a rare quality in someone at his level and of his caliber, so that was so special," she told americansongwriter.com
Styles has been forced to postpone his Love On Tour to next year due to the ongoing global pandemic, but Cunningham is still expected to join him for the rescheduled dates.
Styles said earlier this year: "This summer we were excited to be bringing 'Love on Tour' to North America. However, due to the ongoing threat from Covid-19 we have been forced to reschedule these dates to next summer. The well-being of my crew and all the fans around the world will always hold top priority. I can't wait to see you all out on the road as soon as it's safe to do so."
