Niall Horan's "Nice To Meet Ya World Tour" has been canceled amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Friday (April 3), the former One Direction bandmate, 26, took to social media to break the unfortunate news with his followers. “Given the unprecedented circumstances I have decided to not move forward with the 'Nice To Meet Ya' world tour this year. This was a difficult decision, but the well-being of my fans and touring family is always my top priority," Horan said in a statement.
"Not being able to tour for what is effectively most of 2020 just didn’t feel right and I’m so sorry to all you amazing people who bought tickets," the pop crooner continued. "I look forward to being able to bring new music and a new tour for all of my fans around the world in 2021. I want to announce new dates soon but I don’t think it’s fair on you guys to do so until the dust has settled and things have gone back to normal. For now, all tickets purchased will be refunded."
For the time being, the singer said that he's focusing on writing and recording more music, so that he can be back on the road. "As you all know, touring and having the fortune to play in front of all of you beautiful people is the reason I love my job and my life," he added. "I cannot wait to be back. For the time being, please stay safe everyone. Love you all, Nialler."
