Due to the current outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) this event has been cancelled. To see Niall Horan's official statement, please visit niallhoran.com
Niall Horan has played the world's biggest stages and heard his lyrics screamed back at him. He's smashed Guinness records with his old band and shared Guinness pints with fabulous people. He's even seen dolls made in his own devilishly charming image.
But for all of that, this Irish singer, songwriter, and pop star is not immune to love's ups and downs. What's different about Horan is that when he makes a breakup album, he doesn't wallow. He takes the opportunity to revisit the relationship from every angle, stormy lows to sunny highs. The result is Heartbreak Weather, an album that captures the full range of emotions felt as love unfolds and ultimately unravels, set to a fittingly powerful and dynamic soundtrack — a whirlwind of modern pop and nostalgic groove, rambunctious rock and sweeping folk, quiet revelations and shout-along choruses.
"It's nearly a concept album," says Horan. "I wanted to hopefully lead people down the storytelling lane of a track-listing, to write these songs from the start of a relationship through to the end — and from different sides — instead of every song being quite sad and all about me. Because when you go through a breakup, it's not sad all the time."
Alongside the man-about-town mania of "Nice to Meet Ya," breezy but humid hookup anthem "No Judgement," and, yes, the properly heartbroken "Put a Little Love on Me," you'll find a set of songs that ups the energy from 2017's Flicker, tapping influences as wide-ranging as Bruce Springsteen, Arctic Monkeys, and the Weeknd.
Heartbreak Weather sweeps listeners up and onto a journey where the perspective, emotion, and music are always shifting. Ultimately, the trip is as healing as it is honest-to-god fun — these songs were made for the stage. And as Heartbreak Weather carries us toward clear skies, it is, of course, Horan's emotive voice, rich insight, and vivid storytelling that guide the way…
