Nice To Meet Ya Tour Live in Orlando
On April 25, the Amway Center in Orlando welcomes singer-songwriter Niall Horan with his Nice To Meet Ya Tour, as the artist celebrates success of his second solo album after a legendary run with One Direction.
The only Irish-born member of One Direction, Horan’s career began after a whirlwind ride on television. Along with his One Direction bandmates, Horan was thrown into the spotlight on the British televised singing competition, The X Factor, where he joined forces with Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, and Louis Tomlinson, who would later become one of the most successful boy bands in the world.
Today, ten years later, Horan has carved his own path as a solo artist, focusing on the aspects of music that always felt like home to the now-26-year-old—authenticity and truth. With his second album, Heartbreak Weather, the singer is continuing travel further away from the pop expectations that his time in One Direction have placed upon him, meandering down rough roads and scenic terrain that echo back to the heart of music that lit a fire within Horan’s spirit long before he became part of the past decade’s biggest Brit-pop sensation.
Even in his early days of One Direction, Horan always stood out as the guy with the guitar, carrying along his six string and adding a touch of rawness and reflection to the band’s live performances. In 2017, Horan finally got the chance to cultivate this musicality with his debut solo project, Flicker.
After releasing his first ever single as a solo singer, “This Town,” Horan followed the massive support from his fans with two more chart-topping tracks, “Slow Hands” and “Too Much to Ask,” which both shed light on a new side of the songwriter that the world had not yet seen of him as simply a member of a boy band.
With songs that are charismatic and personal, relaxed yet passionate, Horan has proven himself as a true writer at heart, with lyrics that reflect on the more vulnerable moments of life and reimagine the world with Horan’s idiosyncratic sense of idyllic charm.
Now, in Heartbreak Weather, Horan has nurtured that anecdotal quality within his writing as his storytelling prowess even proves more appealing, with notes of nostalgia and throwback tunes that harken to the golden days of 80s rockstars—from Springsteen to The Eagles, Horan’s vintage influences are readily heard on this modern-yet-mythic collection of tracks.
With hits like “Nice To Meet Ya” and “Put a Little Love on Me” already filling the radio airwaves, Heartbreak Weather has once again put Horan on the map as an old soul with youthful appeal that is a force to be reckoned with.
With 17 tour stops across North America, Horan’s Nice To Meet Ya Tour has put Orlando near the top of the list, as the fourth show in the run. Horan will be joined by Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi, who is already climbing the charts in his own right with his hit single, “Someone You Loved,” and pop singer Fletcher.
