A CREW on Harry Styles' tour were hijacked by armed gangsters on a notorious highway in Brazil.

The van was driving south along the B-116 highway from Sao Paulo to the city of Curitiba on Friday when three armed men targeted the vehicle.

Cops said the gangsters overtook the van, forced it to stop, and then stole it along with the equipment, G1 reports. 

It's understood the vehicle was a Live Nation van carrying merchandise for Styles' "Love On Tour" tour.

The British singer played in Rio de Janerio on Thursday night, and he's set to perform in Curitiba on Saturday.

Police said the driver was "subdued" by the three robbers – who haven't yet been tracked down.

The van has also not been recovered.

Brazil's remote BR-116 is a notoriously dangerous road – dubbed the "highway to hell" for the widespread sexual exploitation of children along the route.

Stretching 4,542km, it's the longest highway in the country.

The Sun has contacted Styles' representatives for comment.
