- Harry sneakily mentioned a UK tour the other day when it is announced we’ll let you know. I have been told when it ‘might’ be on sale but I’m sworn to secrecy! All I can say is I wouldn’t expect it to be on sale until at least November whilst they are promoting and releasing Love Is Easy or Memory Lane as tours go well with albums, although that being said it could be announced anytime (remember KCAPL and the sale date getting pushed further back!)
I think that’s everything, I’ll update this later if I forgot anything and I’ll start posting links to all the articles from the papers over the last week which I haven’t posted due to them being Unsaid Thing spoiler!
