Niall Horan cancels ‘Nice to Meet Ya’ world tour

Former One Direction singer, Niall Horan, has announced on Twitter that his upcoming world tour has been cancelled, due to the on-going impact of the Coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement released on Twitter, the singer stated that the “difficult decision” was unavoidable given the current situation.

The artist confirmed that all purchased tickets would be refunded, and that he hoped to have new tour dates to announce in the near future.

“I am going to focus on writing and recording more in order to be back touring next year with more music to play for you all.”

You can read the statement in full below:

The tour was to be in support of the solo artist’s brand new album, Heartbreak Weather, which has received outstanding critical acclaim since its release on March 13th.

The singer’s former band mates, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, have also had to postpone their solo tours due to current events.

Niall Horan first achieved success back in 2010 with X- Factor phenomenon, One Direction. He has since then embarked on an impressive solo career, with his debut album Flicker, released back in 2017, featuring much loved singles such as ‘This Town, ‘Seeing Blind’ and ‘Slow Hands’.

Heartbreak Weather is the second album from Niall Horan, and the musical talent continues to grow in the Irish star, with exceptional songs such as ‘Nice to Meet Ya’ and ‘Bend the Rules’.
