Live Nation says they know bootleggers are hoping to make quite a bit of money on unauthorized merchandise ahead of the Nashville concerts.

Harry is also expected to play again in Music City next June at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

The former One Direction star has been on a world tour promoting his new album, with a combination of big arenas and more intimate stops.

This past weekend, the heart throb was in Los Angeles where he treated a few lucky fans to an intimate show at Nova’s Red Room.

The 23-year-old played five of his tracks from his self-titled album.

Playing Sign Of The Times, Two Ghosts, Carolina, Ever Since New York and Kiwi, Nova revealed he also spent time to individually speak to every fan in the room before spraying them with his water.

Heading to Australia in November and again next April for his first solo tour, the star who was discovered on the UK’s series of The X-Factor said he couldn’t wait to head down under.

‘Thank you for all the support in Australia that I’ve had over the years….and with this album,’ he shared at the secret gig.

‘I love you very much…You’re all so wonderful, and I hope that I will see you again on tour.’
