The One Direction star was due to perform with Lizzo on his birthday in Florida at the Planet Pepsi Zero Sugar party but has been forced to cancel the pre-Super Bowl show. Taking to Twitter today, Harry Styles wrote: “To those of you here in Miami, I was told there’s a severe storm on the way. The fire department would not let us do the show under any circumstances.”
Styles added: Please stay safe. I’m so disappointed, and I’m sorry. I love you all. H.”
While Pepsi released a statement on Twitter, saying: “As ordered by the Miami Fire Dept, Planet Pepsi Zero Sugar had to, unfortunately, be canceled due to extreme weather.
“This was a mandatory evacuation in Miami across special event venues.
“We are focused on ensuring everyone is safely evacuated. We deeply apologize to the fans.”

Express.co.uk first asked Morgan Spurlock about a One Direction reunion in 2017, when he said: “That’s never going to happen.”
But now, two years later – as he promotes his new documentary Super Size Me 2 – he sounds much more positive about one happening, considering other recent band reunion tours.
Spurlock said: “You never say never. I mean, I feel that you keep hearing about these reunions all the time.
“I think if those guys ever decided to do it, that thing would print money.”
