1D’s Niall Horan in Manila for Flicker World Tour 

After the successful staging of Ed Sheeran’s Divide Tour and Bruno Mars’s 24 K Magic World Tour, Smart Music Live rounds up this summer’s string of international concerts with Niall Horan’s Flicker World Tour. 

The former One Direction member is set to conclude the summer season with his live show at the Mall of Asia Arena on Sunday.

Niall started his solo career via 2017’s Flicker studio album that produced the hit singles “This Town” and “Slow Hands.” The album itself debuted at number one in Ireland and the United States and charted well-reaching No. 3 in Australia and the UK. 

Born in Mullingar, Ireland, the 24-year-old pop heartthrob auditioned for the seventh series of The X Factor in Dublin. He sang “So Sick,” and received mixed comments from the judges.

At bootcamp, Niall sang “Champagne Supernova,” but failed to qualify for the “Boys” category. 

Irish heartthrob and One Direction former member Niall Horan is set to have a solo concert at the Mall of Asia Arena on Sunday.
After a suggestion from guest judge Nicole Scherzinger, Niall was put into a group with four other boys, who also failed to move on in the competition. Niall, along with Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik, formed One Direction.

In September 2016, it was announced that Niall had signed a solo deal with Capitol Records that eventually released his debut solo single “This Town.” Since its release, it has peaked at number 9 on the UK Singles Chart, and number 20 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Seven months later, Niall released his second solo single “Slow Hands,” which entered the top 10 in the UK and the top 20 in the US.

In a recent story posted by, “thousands of screaming fans gave Horan a rousing welcome to Australia at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre” last June 4. Also presented by MMI Live, the Manila stop on Sunday is part of the midway point of Niall’s seven-month world tour, the second concert tour of the young artist that began in March and is scheduled to conclude in September in West Palm Beach.
