In a video posted to TikTok, the British heartthrob could be seen leading his 40,000 strong crowd at Mt Smart Stadium into a chorus of Tūtira Mai Ngā Iwi, a 1950s Kiwi classic popular in classrooms and at sporting matches.
Styles sung the opening line in te reo Māori before concert-goers joined in, finishing the song off with a hearty “auē!” for the pop star.
