Directioners will be hoping to get their hands on tickets to Niall Horan's Brighton Centre gig next year, as he goes it alone with a solo tour.

As Horan is set to release his debut solo album Flicker on October 20, he announced an extensive European tour for 2018, with support from rising star Julia Michaels.

Horan will kick off his 2018 'Flicker' tour of Europe in his homeland of Ireland at the 3Arena, Dublin (March 12), with dates at the London’s O2 Academy Brixton (March 22), Brussels Forest National (April 30), Milan’s Mediolanum Forum (May 7) and Lisbon’s Coliseu (May 12).

He is currently in the middle of his 'Flicker Sessions 2017 Tour', which sold out in minutes. After already visiting Dublin, London, Stockholm, Sydney, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Rio de Janeiro, Horan heads next to Philadelphia to kick off the North American leg on October 29 in The Fillmore Philadelphia. It will include October show at New York City’s intimate Beacon Theatre and finish at The Masonic, San Francisco on November 22.

Horan, who has sold over 70 million records as part of One Direction, launched his solo career with the singles 'This Town' and 'Slow Hands', which have both achieved platinum certification or higher in numerous markets around the world. 'Slow Hands' went straight to No1 in 44 countries.

Tickets for the Brighton show on March 27, go on sale this Friday at 9am (October 13) at Gigs and Tours and Ticket Master.
