Harry Styles’ fans have been urged to print tickets for his upcoming Edinburgh show, after Beyonce’s concert was hit by issues with fans trying to gain entry.
The singer, 29, will take to the stage in Scotland on Friday and Saturday, and fans have been sent a stern email warning they must have physical copies of tickets or they will be refused entry.
Fans were told: ‘You MUST print your ticket before coming to the venue otherwise you will not gain entry.’
It comes after Ticketmaster chaos meant some fans struggled to gain entry to Beyonce’s concert at Murrayfield on Saturday, with some complaining that due to poor signal they were unable to present their tickets.
One attendee told Edinburgh Evening News: ‘It was chaos – folk were unable to get tickets up. They would not accept screen shots either.

‘It took us an hour to get a signal and only because we went to a pub quite a bit away with free Wi-Fi, so stood outside and the app finally worked but loads of folk had same issues and loads of people arrived late to the concert as a result.’
Concertgoers have also been asked not to come to Murrayfield before 12pm, out of respect for residents living near the venue.
It comes after Beyonce fans began queuing outside the venue in the early morning for her concert that evening.
Harry kicked off the UK leg of his Love On Tour at the Coventry Building Society Arena on Monday evening.
The As It Was singer, 29, who is newly single, gave fans a spectacular performance, showing off his impeccable style in a pair of beige leather trousers and a yellow striped polo top.

His keen feather boa-wearing fans started queuing from 8am at the arena, with gates opening from 5pm onwards.
Harry is in the middle of his Love On Tour shows which first began in 2021 in support of his second and third albums Fine Line and Harry’s House.

The tour consists of seven legs spreading over the course of 22 months starting in September 2021 in Las Vegas and ending in July in Reggio Emilia, 2023.
It comes after Harry’s latest music video for his single Satellite dropped and it is being compared to 2008 Pixar animation Wall-E, which sees a cleaning robot find love.
At the beginning of the video, the robot – named Stomper after Harry’s Satellite Stomp dance move – is backstage at one of his shows at the Forum in Los Angeles .
The machine blinks away invisible tears while watching a broadcast of the Curiosity rover roaming around Mars alone for more than a decade, narrated by Brian Cox.
Stomper watches as Harry’s crew spring to action ahead of the gig, with the Love on Tour band huddling together before the performer takes to the stage.
Harry himself barely features in the video, aside from a few moments, including one where he is onstage singing Satellite and the crowd’s vocals blend with his own.

Don’t you know I’m right here? Harry’s latest music video for his single Satellite has dropped and it is being compared to Wall-E, which sees a cleaning robot find love
They all sing: ‘Spinning out waiting for ya to pull me in/I can see you’re lonely down there, don’t you know that I am right here?’
The song centres in on the idea of going around and around in circles searching for something and the lyrics hint at heartbroken emotions.
After the show ends, Stomper is once again alone, as he is seen driving over foa feathers left by Harry’s fans in the grounds of the arena.
He also hopes to find a connection with a skateboarder by mimicking his tricks.
After leaving the venue, Stomper wanders out on a cold and rainy night, avoiding traffic on a busy highway and travelling through canyons and deserts.
During his search for a connection, which also takes him to the mountains, Stomper befriends a rat, which could be another Pixar reference to animation, Ratatouille.
Stomper ultimately finds what he is looking for in Harry and the duo can be seen lying side by side in the grass outside NASA, looking up at the real satellite.
As Stomper settles beside Harry, his battery runs out.
The lyrics suggest a stark distance between Harry and the person that he is singing about, who is simply referred to as ‘she’.
However Harry hints at a change in his emotions in the second part of the film, and rather than being asked to be ‘pulled in’, he sings: ‘I’m in an L.A. mood / I don’t wanna talk to you.’
However the chorus goes on to double down on the idea of ‘being there’ for someone, suggesting that the track portrays the ups and downs of a relationship.
