Niall Horan is on a mission to bring Irish music around the world

Later this month, our very own Niall Horan will embark on his first ever solo world tour – and he's bringing some local talent along for the ride.

The Slow Hands singer took to Twitter earlier today announce the support acts for his upcoming Flicker Sessions tour, adding that he wanted to make it “as Irish as possible.”

The Dublin-based Wild Youth will join Niall for his opening show in Dublin's Olympia theatre, while Kildare duo, Picture This, will join the former One Direction member in London and Stockholm.

And as if that wasn't enough, the super-talented Gavin James will support Niall in the US and Toronto.

Many fans were left disappointed after tickets for the Flicker Sessions tour sold out in minutes, and to be honest, we reckon this latest announcement will just rub salt in the wound.
