Flicker World Tour 2018
Global superstar Niall Horan brought his Flicker World Tour 2018 to Australia in June, with arena shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. It was his first solo Arena tour and saw him perform smash hits ‘Slow Hands’ and ‘This Town’, plus tracks off his forthcoming debut album.
‘Slow Hands’, his current single, is now Triple Platinum in Australia, went straight to Number One in 44 countries and has more than 820 million combined streams worldwide. Horan, who has sold over 70 million records as part of the all-conquering One Direction, has spent the past year writing and recording his debut solo album, which will be released prior to Christmas.
Accompanying himself on guitar, his new material takes its inspiration from the music he has favored since childhood and his contemporaries – artists like Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles and Crosby, Stills and Nash, The Lumineersand James Bay.
“I’ve been listening to a lot of early 80’s stuff lately and been inspired by that heavy bass and the funky guitar sound. It’s another flavor to my album that I’m excited to share,” said Horan when discussing ‘Slow Hands.’
Special guest on the Flicker World Tour 2018 was buzz US singer songwriter Maren Morris, who is caused a storm in 2018 with debut album ‘Hero’ and breakout single ‘My Church’.
