Niall Horan Played a Vintage One Direction Song at His Flicker Sessions Tour Last Night

Niall Horan may be a full-fledged solo artist now kicking off his solo tour, but he will never forget where he came from.

The 23-year-old former One Direction singer had a huge night yesterday evening, August 29, kicking off the first night of his Flicker Sessions tour.

Niall revealed the title of his debut album, played some previously unheard gems, and — best of all — went back to his 1D roots.

At his Dublin concert, he sang “Fool’s Gold,” a ballad from 1D’s 2014 album, Four. Of course, the crowd was obsessed with the throwback.

See that? It’s our hopes and dreams that 1D will someday get back together again, alive and well.

Watch a fan video of the performance below!

Louis Tomlinson and One Direction definitely didn’t feel like they fit in at their first VMAs!

The group first attended the show in the early 2010s, back when they were a brand new band.

“I remember the first time we went to the VMAs…and like Rihanna is sat two rows in front and Drake,” Louis explained to MTV News.

He continued, “We were feeling out of our depth and I just looked over and me and Niall are just, like, scarfing eating this hot dog proper messy, thinking, like, ‘We shouldn’t really be here.’”

But even though they weren’t quite award show pros yet, Louis added, “I have loads of really nice memories from that.”

Aww, we love how much of a father figure Simon Cowell has become to the One Direction guys!

The reality TV judge and producer recently shared a story about a time Louis Tomlinson‘s nerves got the best of him before a show.

“When somebody goes a little bit crazy, my way of dealing with things is to deal with it straight away, face-to-face,” Simon told Billboard about the incident. “I sat him down and went, ‘Look, we’ve all been there, I’ve been there. You’re in a fantastic place right now.’ … And then we laughed it off, he sent me a very nice text afterwards and from that moment we had this incredible bond.”

Simon also revealed that he told Louis – the last of the guys to launch his solo career – not to feel too much pressure and to “always be true to yourself with the music.”

Louis and I, you know, we’ve got this very close bond,” Simon elaborated. “When we heard about this current record, I remember calling him and going, ‘Louis, this record is special’ – and I could not be happier.”

“Actually, with all the boys, if I’m being honest with you,” Simon added. “They’ve worked for this. But yeah, you do feel a little bit like a proud dad when you see all five of them doing well now.”

Simon put Louis, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik together in a group after they all auditioned individually for The X Factor UK in 2010.

The day the world was changed forever.

Speaking with 92.3 AMP Radio, the “Back To You” singer revealed that the only guy he’d absolutely, 100% trust to babysit his son Freddie would be Niall.

“I don’t know who I would least trust to be quite honest because actually, all the boys are quite good with kids, honestly,” Louis shared, however, Niall is the one he trusts the most.

“I’m going to go off what I’ve seen and I’ve seen Niall with little Theo quite a lot, which is his brother’s baby, so I’m going to go with Niall,” he says.

“Hopefully, he doesn’t let me down in this theoretical plan. I haven’t seen Liam — I’m not saying he’s not great, I’m just going off what I’ve seen!”

Simon Cowell Says One Direction Without Harry Styles 'Wouldn't Be the Same'

Is a One Direction without Harry Styles a possibility in the future?

Simon Cowell, who created the band back in 2010, says it’s definitely possible, but “it wouldn’t be the same.”

“You know, it’s fun being out there on your own, but what I hope is going to happen is that they remember now how much fun it was being in a group,” Simon told The Sun. “I always believe that you don’t make rules, you break the rules. So there’s nothing to stop them, if they want to, getting together for a tour, for an album.”

“I made it absolutely clear, obviously, ‘We’re in,’” he added.

Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Harry all went their separate ways and embarked on their own solo projects just over a year ago.

Louis has recently revealed the the guys are still his “best mates,” and in May, Harry said he “wouldn’t rule out” a reunion.

“He knows that none of us ever thought that or think that. He’s an unbelievable guy, a great singer and someone that if, I’d say, we would have lost the plot along the way if we hadn’t had Louis,” Niall told Nova 100 radio show (via Daily Mail). “He was a very, very, very, extremely vital member of One Direction. He’s a great man.”

Louis Tomlinson Says the One Direction Guys Are Still His 'Best Mates'

Louis Tomlinson Says the One Direction Guys Are Still His 'Best Mates'

Former One Direction member Niall Horan spoke out recently about how the media tries to make the former band members out to be rivals, though they aren’t at all — and now Louis Tomlinson is reaffirming that statement.

“We were always five best mates on the road; it was real nice,” the 25-year-old “Back to You” singer said to Noisey in a new interview, “and as time went on, we all began to understand each other.”

He went on to say that though their are “often misconceptions,” the five (Louis, Niall, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, and Liam Payne) have managed to stay close.

“We’re all such good mates,” he continued, “If you look at the X Factor final, when I performed my song with Steve, all the boys came to support me, and I didn’t know until a couple of hours beforehand. It wasn’t one of those stupid f-king celebrity things where it’s like, ‘Let’s all get in a picture and put it on Instagram and show everyone that we’re best mates’ ­ – we didn’t even put it online. There are always those little things that people don’t hear about.”

We’re so glad that they have all stayed close and continued to support one another, especially after so many years working together.
