Niall Horan's tour with Lewis Capaldi set to go ahead still

Niall Horan's tour with Lewis Capaldi, and Fletcher as a special guest, is set to go ahead still "as of now".

The Irish superstar is at home currently celebrating his second album Heartbreak Weather landing straight in at Number 1 in the UK on Friday [March 20]. 

His album triumphed after an incredibly close week-long battle with his good pal Capaldi’s album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, which is currently Number 2 this week in the UK charts. 

Heartbreak Weather is Horan's first UK chart-topping album as a soloist. His debut album Flicker reached Number 3 in 2017.

And despite all the uncertainty surrounding live music in the industry, the singer-songwriter is still gearing up to hit the road on his Nice To Meet Ya Tour of North America with Capaldi next month. Their first show is due to take place on April 20 at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.

The 'No Judgement' hitmaker is hoping the pair will be able to complete the run, despite the coronavirus pandemic which has led to many tours and festivals, including Coachella and SXSW, all being postponed.

The heartthrob tweeted recently on March 15: "Given the ongoing and developing coronavirus situation we‘ve decided to hold the on sale for the recently announced summer US tour dates until further notice . I’ll let you know as soon as we have more information to share . Stay safe everyone x. (sic)"

He admitted it would be "a shame to lose it" should they have to reschedule as a result of the global health crisis but let's all hope that doesn't happen. 

Speaking to UK TV show Lorraine via a video link, he said: "My tour is going ahead as of now with Lewis.

"But God knows, day by day things are changing, it would be a shame to lose it but we have to listen to the people too."

Horan, 26, previously insisted the bromance would tone down their partying ways, after Lewis, 23, had to cancel a string of UK shows to prevent damage to his vocal cords in November.

Horan explained: "It's going to be hard not to do what we want to do but we will pick our days, go for a few beers and have a laugh. We always have a laugh, anyway. He is a very funny man. What you see is what you get.

"I have to be on stage for an hour and a half every night and I haven't made it easy for myself with the songs. They're all in high keys. There's no way I'd be good value for money if we were going on the lash all the time. So we're getting nights out out of the way now."
