Watch Harry Styles Cover ‘The Horses’ with Daryl Braithwaite in Sydney

Harry Styles wrapped up the Australian leg of his Love On Tour dates with a pair of shows at Sydney’s Accor Stadium on Friday, 3rd and Saturday, 4th March. During the Saturday show, Styles was joined by Daryl Braithwaite to cover the latter’s 1990 hit single ‘The Horses’.

Styles previously covered the song – written and originally released by Rickie Lee Jones, though popularised by Braithwaite – at shows in Perth and Melbourne, but this was the first time Braithwaite joined in on the rendition. Watch fan-shot footage of that below.

Braithwaite was in the audience for both of Styles’ gigs at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium last month, and heaped glowing praise on the singer for both concerts. “What an extraordinary night it was at [Harry’s] gig,” Braithwaite wrote on Facebook after the first.

“Wet Leg who opened were very good and fresh. I just love the feeling of these massive concerts as they take on a life of [their] own. Harry Styles is so good at what he does and they loved him. I was completely overwhelmed by the night.”

Discussing the second evening, where Styles covered ‘The Horses’ (sans Braithwaite), the singer described the moment as “so surreal” and “overwhelming and so enjoyable”.

Styles is a longtime fan of Braithwaite’s version of ‘The Horses’. In fact, it was a frequent setlist inclusion during Styles’ previous Australian tour back in 2018. Styles jokingly told a fan at one concert, “If you talk dirt on Daryl Braithwaite one more time, you’re out.”

Styles’ Australasian tour concludes tomorrow night (Tuesday, 7th March) with a gig at Auckland’s Mount Smart Stadium. His latest album, 2022’s Harry’s House, recently won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year.
