Harry Styles legally required to take part in New Zealand census due to gig

Harry Styles will legally have to take part in the New Zealand census because he is playing in Auckland on the day that happens.

Unlike the UK, overseas visitors who are in New Zealand on census day must participate. The census, which takes place every five years, falls on March 7, the day Styles plays his only New Zealand show of his “Love On Tour” world tour.

A spokesperson for the New Zealand government’s census team said The Guardian that Styles should participate. Those who fail to participate or provide incorrect information risk a fine of up to 2,000 New Zealand dollars (£1,037).

The 2023 Census Twitter account confirmed to a questioning Twitter user that it requires everyone in the country to provide their contact details – including “tourists, visitors and former members of A direction”.

The account then shared an “artist’s impression” of Styles filling out his census form “lovingly rendered in fuchsia in Microsoft Paint.”

Styles will have to answer questions ranging from his household members to his smoking habits and regular income.

Elsewhere on the Oceania leg of ‘Love On Tour’, the singer made headlines earlier this week after crowds at his show in Perth, Australia brought him to make a “shoey” – drinking a drink, usually beer, from a shoe. “…It’s one of the most disgusting traditions I’ve ever seen,” Styles remarked, adding after that that he’ll “discuss it at length with my therapist.”

Styles will play another UK and European leg of the tour later this year, which includes two more London dates at Wembley Stadium. Support for concerts in the UK and Europe will come from wet legwith Inhaler also joining a huge Irish show.
