One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson to play in Dubai

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson is coming to Dubai next year.

The British singer released his new single We Made It today (Thursday October 24) and also revealed dates for his new world tour – which includes a stop off in Dubai.

Tomlinson will be playing Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena in City Walk on April 18 2020, and fans are sure to be thrilled with the news.

Other stops on the tour include London, Glasgow, Doncaster and Manchester, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, the USA and Canada.

As a member of One Direction, Tomlinson sold more than 100 million records, but he’s making it out on his own, and his debut solo album 'Walls' will be released on January 31 2020.

“There was definitely a process of understanding where I sit musically,” said Tomlinson. “I have my own tastes and, to a certain extent, they are fighting against the musical tide.

“When I grew up, pop meant Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, The Killers and Amy Winehouse. Times change, obviously. Currently pop is very urban and street, which is not what I relate to. Sure, I could make those sort of songs, but they wouldn’t feel like me. The puzzle was how to please both myself and the fans.

“I feel like a new artist now. It’s taken a while for me to be comfortable on my own, to learn to trust my gut and make sure I get what I want. I feel the most confident I’ve ever been, both as a songwriter and a singer, and the most mature.

“Of course I want to be successful, but what matters is what my music means to me and what it means to the fans. That’s the priority. The rest we’ll have to wait and see.”
