Popstar Niall Horan announced news Friday afternoon that his Nice To Meet Ya tour is cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The former One Direction star was slated to head out on tour throughout the U.S. this spring and summer, hitting amphitheaters in cities like Cincinnati, Raleigh, Dallas, and Salt Lake City. Throughout the trek, Fletcher and Lewis Capaldi were slated to provide support. However, due to the “unprecedented circumstances,” the outing has been called-off.

“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 of you amazing people who bought tickets. I look forward to being able to bring new music and a new tour for all of my fans around the world in 2021.”

He went on to not that he will announce new dates eventually, but doesn’t think it’s fair to reveal rescheduled shows until “the dust has settled and things have gone back to normal.” Ticketholders will be refunded.

“I am going to focus on writing and recording more in order to be back touring next year with more music to play for you all,” Horan continued. “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. I cannot wait to be back. For the time being, please stay safe everyone.”

Horan was touring in support of his sophomore solo record, Heartbreak Weather, which dropped earlier this year. The LP features the previously-released track “Nice To Meet Ya” and follows 2017’s Flicker.
