Niall Horan Plays ‘This Town’ Live, Gives One Direction Fans Hope For Reunion

One Direction's Niall Horan on the Golf Course

Niall Horan is on fire with his solo music career, and in addition to having a successful first as far as a song release, Niall has also been added to KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball on December 2 and a second interview will hit before Halloween.

Just a couple of weeks ago, Niall Horan dropped his first single at the end of September and was later seen with his Modest Golf Management director, Mark McDonnell.

At the time, Mark posted a pic of Niall riding around in a golf cart for the Ryder Cup. Around the same time, Niall Horan also got a chance to meet the famed comedian, Bill Murray.

Despite success with his solo album and fun at the Ryder Cup, Niall still took time to pay homage to the famed golfer, Arnold Palmer, who died on September 25.

However, Niall Horan might have been relaxing with a round of golf before getting ready to put more focus on his music career.

On Friday, October 14, Niall Horan appeared on the Graham Norton Show on BBC1 in the U.K. for a live performance. The song Niall Horan chose was one of his new solo singles called “This Town.”

The video related to Niall Horan’s live performance says that “This Town” was directed by Possum Hill and was produced by Don Was and Daylan Williams. In addition to Niall Horan, Jamie Scott, Mike Needle, and Daniel Bryer helped write “This Town.”

About the performance on the Graham Norton Show, Daily Mail said that Niall Horan was later seen partying because his solo music career was going so well.

Allegedly, Simon Cowell saw Niall Horan choosing Universal Records (from France) as a “slam” since it is not affiliated with One Direction’s old parent company, Sony Records.

In the video for “This Town” that appeared around September 29, the opening scene shows the camera panning away from the Capitol Records building (owned by Sony Records), and you hear Niall Horan crooning “waking up to kiss you, but nobody’s there.”

Was Niall Horan referring to a past relationship that is romantic in the opening line of “This Town”… or was he referring to a frayed business relationship with his old record label via Sony?

Although Niall Horan is signed to Universal Records, the credit for the song said the song was copyrighted in 2016 to Neon Haze Music Ltd. “under an exclusive license to Capitol Records.”

One Direction, Niall Horan

Regardless, the real focus of One Direction fans is the fact that Niall Horan might have hinted at a reunion with 1D in the near future.

Entertainment Weekly writes on October 15 that Niall Horan stated the following about the future of One Direction on the Graham Norton Show on October 14.

“For now, in the moment, we are kinda doing our own thing. I’m doing this, Harry’s doing a movie. Harry did a movie. You know, we’re all doing our own bits and pieces. Can’t really put a date on it, but it’s not gonna be 50 years away. It’s in the foreseeable [future].”

Either way, Niall Horan fans will get a taste of him and his music when he performs at the Jingle Ball on December 2.

The announcement was made by On the Air with Ryan Seacrest around October 11, and other performers at the 2016 Jingle Ball include Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, Daya, Britney Spears, Fifth Harmony, and Diplo.

Around October 21, Olly Murs and Niall Horan will possibly be interviewed when they are part of the Stand up to Cancer celebrity special on Channel 4’s Gogglebox, according to Daily Mail. The show will feature Niall Horan and Olly Murs reviewing the random scenes of regular people recorded by Gogglebox.
