Winter. The season that every single person bundles up with blanket scarves and cute duck weather boots.

Whether it is new, old, or just the great classics, winter music is what sets the mood for this season and I have, from what I think, sets the “winter” mood.

4 Reasons To See Niall Horan Live.

On November 13th 2017 Niall Horan played his show, Flicker Sessions, that the Ryman Auditorium. We all know and love Niall from his past performances with the band One Direction, but this was the first time (at least for me) that we saw Niall perform as ‘Niall Horan’ and not ‘Niall from One Direction.’ Throughout the entire concert I could not help but smile because I was happy. I was happy that Niall finally made his dreams come true, and produced one heck of a first album. I’m happy because his show was not over the top, but was just enough to sweep everyone off of their feet. It was THAT good that I came up with four reasons why everybody should see him live at least once in their lifetime.

  1. His Compassion

It is no doubt how much love Niall has for music, and it is expected that most music artists should have the same amount of love, but it was something about Niall and how he easily proclaimed his compassion through his songs and performance. I mean y’all he had the whole room go silent during the song ‘Flicker’ so we can all listen to the lyrics through his perspective— if that doesn’t show compassion towards his music then I don’t even know what is.

2. His stage presence

Along with his passion for his songs, his entire stage presence during the show is what made it amazing as well. He never made it over the top, or just plain boring, but he had just enough where it was like a raw stripped version of his songs but with his band. His goofy self was never hidden as he talked in a country accent, said the word ‘y’all’ here and there, played along with band mates, and of course his signature laugh that makes us all smile from head to toe. It was calm, cool, and collected that you felt like you were at home having a jam session with your friends.

3. His music

Good music is what makes a great concert to begin with right? Well the set list of course is what makes it perfect, and Niall’s set list was definitely on point. While he opened up with an up beat tempo song, he slowly made his way through the slow songs where he took his time and made sure that we felt the magic of the lyrics like he does every night. He wanted us to experience his songs the same way he does every time he performs them, and I mean it is bad enough the record alone can make each song special, but seeing and hearing them live is a whole new ball game that makes the songs ten-times better.

4.  Just Niall himself

Of course the last reason has to be because it is Niall James Horan. The Irish boy that we all know and love. The man who is worth spending 2-3hrs of your time listening to live. The person who melts our hearts whenever he walks in the room and gives off his signature grin. Need I say more?

I promise y’all that if you are given the opportunity to see Niall Horan live in concert please go! The concert is worth your money, and he is THAT good that he is worth seeing again. Trust me, I’m planning on seeing him again in July for his Flicker World Tour, and if others are planning on seeing him again too then you know his concerts are good. I promise it will be worth your while. And for those who are not able to see him live, check out his first album ‘Flicker’ and listen to it with your eyes closed… it will feel like he is there right in front of you.
