Wet Leg announced the news on Twitter, tagging Styles and sharing the dates. Comprised of bandmates Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers, Wet Leg will play January 26-29 at the Kia Forum in L.A.

As previously announced, the band also will support Styles on his European and U.K. leg of the tour. Founded in 2019, the Isle of Wight duo of Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers released their debut streaming hit single “Chaise Longue” in 2021, followed by their self-titled debut in April 2022. 

A longtime supporter of the band, Styles covered Wet Leg’s “Wet Dream” in May at BBC Radio’s Live Lounge.

Both Styles and Wet Leg are nominated ag the upcoming 65th Grammy Awards, slated to air on February 5. Styles is up for six awards, including album, record and song of the year. Wet Leg is up for three awards, including best new artist.

Styles’ international Love On Tour started in 2021 and runs through 2023. In August and September 2022, Styles performed 15 sold-out shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, earning him a special banner that hangs from the rafters of the Garden. With a matching donation from Live Nation, the MSG shows also raised $1 million for the Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, which is the “education, research, and litigation arm of Everytown for Gun Safety, the largest gun violence prevention organization in the country,” according to the official website.

Styles’ Love On Tour will resume on January 26, with three shows at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, California, just outside of Los Angeles. The trek will conclude on July 22 in the city of Reggio Emilia, Italy.
