Niall Horan just made everyone’s day a little sweeter by announcing his first solo tour!

On Monday (June 10), the “Slow Hands” singer revealed on social media that he is going on tour in select cities in Europe, Australia, Canada and the United States.

“Hello lovely people, I’m delighted to announce the Flicker Sessions 2017,” Horan tweeted alongside a tour poster with the beginning dates on it.

Flicker Sessions 2017 will kick off in Horan’s home country of Ireland with a show in Dublin on August 29, 2017, so mark your calendars, and potentially book your flights to the land of the leprechauns to see the “This Town” singer live!

Other European tour stops include, London, and Sweden, with Sydney, Australia and Tokyo, Japan thrown in before Horan heads to the states. Horan will be performing all over the US (but rarely in more than one city per state), beginning with a Hollywood Palladium performance in Los Angeles on September 19.

According to Horan’s website, the singer wanted to keep his debut tour “intimate.”

“Niall wants to give his fans a unique experience and has chosen to play small, intimate venues for the 14 dates across North America,” the site reads.

Sadly, that means that Horan will not be touring massive venues, at least not yet, which means tickets will be limited and not everyone will get to see the Irish crooner during his first solo tour.

For the fans who aren’t in the US or in the UK and Ireland, where you can preorder Horan’s solo debut album, and therefore win a chance to see him live, it’s a bittersweet announcement. So much so that are lot of fans tweeted back crying face emojis because Horan will not be hitting their city. Check out some of the reactions below:

Horan is the second One Direction member to be venturing on a tour this year. In April, Harry Styles announced his own solo world tour, which will kick off in the United States in September.
