13th March 2018


Tickets On Sale Friday 13th October 9am


Niall Horan is set to release his debut solo album, Flicker, on 20th October 2017. Horan recently unveiled the album’s cover and latest single, “Too Much To Ask,” and today announced plans for an extensive European run on his “Flicker World Tour 2018” including a Belfast Show at The SSE Arena on 13th March.  Rising star Julia Michaels will join as special guest on these European shows.


Following the huge success of Niall Horan’s platinum certified 2nd single “Slow Hands” that went to No. 1 at US Top 40 Radio, “Too Much To Ask” is one of the first songs Horan penned for the album, which he began working on last year. He co–wrote the track with long–time collaborator Jamie Scott. Produced by Greg Kurstin, who also produced “This Town,” “Too Much To Ask” is available for download and streaming HERE. The official video is now available to stream on Vevo here. It was directed by Malia James (Troye Sivan, Halsey) and produced by Tom Birmingham and Targa Sahyoun.

Horan will kick off his 2018 tour of Europe in his homeland of Ireland at the 3Arena, Dublin (12th March) followed by a Belfast date at The SSE Arena (13th March). The European run will include shows at iconic venues such as London’s O2 Academy Brixton (22nd March), Brussels Forest National (30th April), Milan’s Mediolanum Forum (7th May) and conclude in Lisbon’s Coliseu (12th May). See below for itinerary or visit  


                He is currently in the middle of his “Flicker Sessions 2017 Tour,” which sold out in minutes. After already visiting Dublin, London, Stockholm, Sydney, Toyko, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Rio de Janeiro, Horan heads next to Philadelphia to kick off the North American leg on 29th October in The Fillmore Philadelphia. It will include a 31st October show at New York City’s intimate Beacon Theatre and finish at The Masonic, San Francisco on 22nd November.


                Horan, who has sold over 70 million records as part of the all–conquering One Direction, launched his solo career with the singles “This Town” and “Slow Hands,” which have both achieved Platinum certification (or higher) in numerous markets around the world. “Slow Hands” went straight to Number One in 44 countries. Named as one of the “Best Songs of 2017 So Far” by Billboard, it now has more than 820 million combined streams worldwide. Views of the lyric video exceed 83 million. Horan has been honored with numerous awards in 2017, including People’s Choice, Teen Choice, Radio Disney Music and iHeartRadio MMVA awards.
