“Melbourne! I’m overwhelmed by all the love from you so far, so am adding a second date to The Show Live On Tour 2024 at Rod Laver Arena,” Niall says, “I have said it many times, but I do mean it when I say that the times I have spent down under are some of the best periods of my life…

“I have had amazing shows in Australia and New Zealand, and I cannot wait to be back in 2024. My favourite thing in the world is being on tour. Performing my songs for my fans and sharing those incredible moments together are the reason why I write music in the first place. This is going to be my best tour yet and I cannot wait to see all you ‘lovers’ in 2024.”

Originally from Mullingar, Ireland, Horan has sold over 80 million records and toured the globe multiple times as part of the iconic One Direction.

His full-length solo debut Flicker entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1 in October 2017 and contained the 8 x ARIA Platinum single Slow Hands and 4 x ARIA Platinum This Town.

The album hit the top 10 in 20 countries total and charted #2 on the Australian ARIA charts. With combined global streams surpassing eight billion, Flicker has gone Platinum in five countries (including the U.S.) and Gold in additional seven countries.

Heartbreak Weather followed in 2020 and topped the UK’s Official Albums chart and Billboard’s Top Album Sales tally and came in at #2 on the ARIA charts.

The album The Show is set for release on Friday 9 June, and will feature the already released singles Heaven and Meltdown. Across Australia and New Zealand, both singles are soaring with over 6.8 million combined streams across all platforms.

General public tickets for all shows will go on sale at 10:00am (local time) Friday 2 June.
