Niall Horan adds Spark show to first solo arena tour

The 1D superstar will bring his hotly-anticipated solo tour to Auckland in 2018.

Former One Direction star Niall Horan will be bringing his first solo Arena tour to Auckland next year. 

Niall has confirmed a Spark Arena show as part of his Flicker World Tour 2018, taking place on Friday 1 June 2018. So it’s not even a school night and now we’re even more excited.

The British heartthrob will perform solo hits like Slow Hands and This Town for Kiwi fans, as well as even newer tracks off his forthcoming debut album.

Not showing any signs of slowing down since 1D’s split, Niall’s Slow Hands track has already gone Platinum in New Zealand, as well as topping the charts in 44 countries.

Finding his flow as a solo singer/songwriter, Niall has spent the past year writing and recording his debut album, which will land in time for Christmas.

He’s said to have taken inspiration from artists like Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles and Crosby, Stills and Nash, The Lumineers and James Bay.

“I’ve been listening to a lot of early ’80s stuff lately and been inspired by that heavy bass and the funky guitar sound. It’s another flavor to my album that I’m excited to share,” Niall said previously regarding Slow Hands.

The Flicker World Tour 2018 hits New Zealand, June 1 at Spark Arena, Auckland.

He’ll also be joined by a special guest in the shape of US singer/songwriter and total buzz-artist, Maren Morris, who’s currently ruling playlists with debut album Hero and breakout single My Church.

Ticketmaster’s Top Ticket Tips

Open your Ticketmaster account and log in now

We suggest getting the basics covered before tickets go on sale by logging in and checking your Ticketmaster account ahead of time. Remember to triple check your passwords and billing information now, so you’re not facing any last minute account updates when trying to process your order. Head to now and log in to your account to get started.

Don’t refresh your screen

Stick to one window when you’re processing your ticket order and avoid the temptation to use multiple devices. Attempting to access tickets from multiple devices won’t increase your chances of securing tickets and could risk slowing the process down. Similarly, hitting the refresh button means you’ll lose your place in the queue, and as frustrating it can be, patience is key when trying to buy tickets.

Ticketmaster’s sophisticated systems are designed to manage and process ticket purchases as quickly as possible. The queuing system that appears on your screen is doing all the hard work for you and will place you at the front of the line as soon as possible.

Please note, if you see a ‘no tickets available’ message when attempting to purchase tickets, this means there are no tickets available within your search restrictions.

Keep an eye on the clock

There will be a time limit applied to all transactions as they’re progressed through the ticket purchasing stages. Remember to keep an eye on the timer on your screen and move through the processing pages as quickly as possible (this is even easier when you’ve completed the account set-up stage we mentioned above).

Our Twitter followers are the first to find out about ticket updates, even after tickets have gone on sale. If anything changes with Niall Horan tickets, we’ll feed the news live onto our social channels. Our real-time updates include any technical difficulties that may occur during such busy ticket sales.
