Niall Horan’s major “Nice to Meet Ya” outing joins the long list of tours affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Horan’s April 22 date at State Farm Arena with Lewis Capaldi and Fletcher is among the shows the “Slow Hands” singer has canceled as he moves his tour to 2021.

In a statement on social media, Horan noted, "This was a difficult decision, but the well-being of my fans and my touring family is always my priority. Not being able to tour for what is effectively most of 2020 just didn't feel right and I'm so sorry to all you amazing people who bought tickets."

Horan’s statement said that he’s waiting until “the dust has settled” to reschedule dates. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

The former One Direction-er also said that even though he just released his second album, “Heartbreak Winter,” in March, he’s using his newfound downtime to write and record more music to perform next year.
