The One Direction star from Mullingar proved he really is an artist on his own, giving the sold out 3Arena in Dublin a taste of the world famous performer he is becoming.
Last night was Niall Horan's first ever solo gig in the 3Arena with not an empty seat in sight. Coming out on stage in blue jeans, a white t-shirt and his guitar slung around his shoulder, the Mullingar boy was all smiles as he acknowledged the sea of screaming (mostly) teenage girls. Without saying anything he goes straight into playing 'She's on the Loose,' from his album Flicker. In an attempt to calm the crowd who are going absolutely ballistic, he begins his slower set of the three songs; 'You and Me,' 'This Town,' and 'Paper House.'
"Dublin, I'm home," he shouts, sending the crowd wild again. You can really tell that he is genuinely humbled and shocked at the turn out and support being received on the night telling the crowd that he has played here numerous times before but never as a solo artist and that tonight was a very special night for him.
Irish singer and song writer Ruth-Anne Cunningham who is most famous for writing tracks such as Britney Spear's 'Work Bitch,' One Direction's 'No Control' and JoJo's 'Too Little Too Late,' joined Niall on stage to help him out in the song she co-wrote; 'Slow Hands,' as well as singing their latest country rock ballad 'Seeing Blind.'
