Hello my loves,
So, let me scream about the best night of my life.
Saturday 18th June 2022, I saw my favourite person in the world front row at Wembley Stadium. I still can’t even believe that’s something I’m able to write down. Harry. Wembley. Front row. I feel like I’m in a dream.
If you’ve followed my blog for a few years you’ll know that H is my favourite person in the world and I’ve adored him ever since 2010, when I was 12 years old. He’s everything and he always will be. I’ve been to every 1D tour and every Harry tour, and I got tickets for his Fine Line tour which was unfortunately cancelled due to Covid, and long story short when the tour was cancelled, I got a refund and was then given an exclusive pre-sale access code to his new (Harry’s House) tour, meaning we could try for tickets before they went on general sale to everyone else. I was at work the day the pre-sale tickets went up and so I gave my friend the code and it was her job to get us tickets instead. I’ve been to Wembley twice before, the first time was when 1D played there and the second time was in 2019 for BTS (whole post about that here). Both times I’ve been seated because unless it’s a small gig like an o2 academy venue, standing isn’t really my thing. For H however we basically said we wanted to get the best tickets possible and therefore if we could get standing we could, and when my friend text me later that day saying she’d just bought us Kitchen (front pit standing) tickets, we both couldn’t quite believe what was happening.
Keeping in with the theme of Harry’s house, the three pits at the front of the stage were called Hallway and Bedroom (either side of the stage) and then there was Kitchen, which was at the front of the stage in the middle, which was where we were. I didn’t know this, but when we walked in we were given special wristbands to essentially mark our designated area and I got so excited I was literally squealing. I’m never taking mine off.
We got there around 6pm which is not like me when I’m standing at a concert because best believe I’ll be there at the crack of dawn in order to secure my spot at the front, but Wembley is so big and there was so many people we really didn’t want a stressful day and so just decided we’d go when we were ready – either way, we were in the front pit so no matter where we ended up within that section our view would’ve been really good.
When we got there, there were maybe around 15/16 rows of people in front of the stage already and we were like…omg. Though to be honest I’m not sure what we were expecting. Anyway, as you walk in you’re essentially walking into the side of the pit because that’s where the barriers are open for you to walk in, but along that side there were gaps, and so instead of walking in and going to the back which is what most people were doing, we walked in and stayed where we were, meaning we were sat 3 rows from the front on the left hand side of the middle pit and we were like, what the fuck is happening. We’re three rows from the front of the stage. We couldn’t believe it and I thought I was going to have a meltdown, the whole thing seemed completely surreal because this man has been everything to me since I was 12 years and I’ve seen him on every tour but never up close, and now here I was at 24 about to be so close to him I could see the whites of his eyes. I couldn’t even begin to comprehend how I was going to feel, because the concept was so far-fetched to me I couldn’t even imagine it.
During the playlist that came on before H came on, there was a lot of Queen playing – which was amazing to see everyone singing together with their lights up, and Best Song Ever came on which we all went feral for and we were jumping so hard in the pit my bag actually broke from the sheer force of it. Being in a standing zone was so much better than being seated because we were surrounded by so many people and it felt so much more inclusive being able to jump around and laugh with everyone around us.
8:50 finally rolled around and H was about to come on and already I was crying and holding my friend’s hand so tight because all I could think was I can’t believe this is happening I can’t believe this is happening.
And then it did.
And there he was in his love heart dungarees and I could see every tattoo and every tooth in the smile that was plastered all over his face and I thought I was going to cry and die and explode and faint all at once and all I could do was stand there and cry because there he was and I’d literally waited my entire life for that moment and maybe I don’t deserve many things in life but that’s one thing I knew I deserved more than anyone and if 12 year old Chloe could’ve seen me then she wouldn’t have even believed it.
The whole thing was just insanely magical, the best night of my life. Ever. At one point not long after he’d come on I’m not kidding when I say that I’m 99.9% sure we made eye contact and I didn’t know what the fuck to do with myself so I mouthed “I love you” at him three times and my friend was laughing at me because my mind just completely went blank as our eyes met and I couldn’t think to do anything else.
He sang Matilda quite early on in the set and I stood there crying my eyes out wondering why the hell he’d do that because he’d been here less than 20 minutes and I didn’t need those lyrics in my life at that point because hadn’t I already cried enough and if I wasn’t depressed then I certainly was now. It was emotional and it was sad and I just cried and I hate Matilda and love Matilda and damn that man for singing it so early on because I wasn’t trying to keep crying throughout the whole damn set.
I can’t believe he was so close. He was right there. I could literally see the whites of his eyes. It felt like it was just a concert between us and him and the other 80,000 people in Wembley weren’t there because he was right there and he was all I could see. As Wembley is obviously an open stadium we felt the rain when it started, and I’m not kidding when I say that as soon as he started singing Sign of The Times the heavens opened and we all got absolutely drenched and it was the best moment of my entire fucking life. H singing Sign of The Times in the pouring rain right in front of us as I stood next to my best friend looking up at the sky getting absolutely fucking drenched and thinking I’m going to remember this moment forever. Screaming we don’t talk enough we should open up as the rain poured down over us to the point we couldn’t even seen and all I could think was this is the best moment of my entire life.
And then he sang Kiwi as the last song and the rain was relentless and not letting up and we were all absolutely drenched and feral jumping and throwing ourselves around screaming I’m having your baby it’s none of your business and the mascara was running down my face and we all looked like we’d dragged through a hedge backwards in the pouring rain and it was fucking mesmerising and brilliant and I wanted to do it all over again before it had even ended.
Honestly the best night of my entire life, I cannot stop looking at the videos I took of him right there in front of me because I still feel like this whole thing can’t be real. Gutted about the fact that when you upload videos to WordPress it decreases their quality because the actual videos are SO clear but here’s a few of them anyway. I can’t stop watching.
And so there we have it loves, the best night of my life in a blog post. I’ll probably come back to this to edit it because I have more photos I want to add but right now I’m too excited to wait and wanted to upload this asap. H is my favourite person ever ever ever and I love him with all my heart. If u think u love him more than me no u don’t !! Fight me !!
All my love,
