Over thumping drums and the song’s robust bass line, Horan sang the simpering mid-tempo jam with a giant grin on his face as he slunk around the stage. The crowd was a crucial part of the performance from the opening “Woo!” and Horan expertly deferred to them to finish the hook, “Already know that there ain’t no stopping/ Your plans on those – slow hands.”
Horan also performed Flicker track, “Too Much to Ask.” The musician moved through the breakup ballad with ease as he plucked a glittering guitar melody and crooned the heartbroken lyrics over shuffling drums and the low hum of a violin.
Horan is set to embark on a short North American tour in support of Flicker October 29th at the Fillmore in Philadelphia. He’ll also spend much of 2018 on the road, with a larger trek launching July 18th at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion outside of Houston.
