Former One Direction star Niall Horan is heading to Cardiff on his 2018 tour.

The singer will kick off his 2018 tour of Europe in his homeland of Ireland on March 12 before stopping in Cardiff on March 24.

Niall, 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 honoured with numerous awards in 2017, including People’s Choice, Teen Choice, Radio Disney Music and iHeartRadio MMVA awards.

He is set to release his debut solo album, Flicker, on October 20 and has recently unveiled the album’s cover and latest single, “Too Much To Ask”.

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.

Tickets for the 2018 UK shows go on-sale to the general public on Friday, October 13 at 9am.

Tickets for show at Motorpoint Arena Cardiff will be available from the Box Office 029 2022 4488 and
