Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Irish singer Niall Horan plans to tour in 2018.

The 24-year-old One Direction member posted dates Friday for his North American tour with Maren Morris after sharing the new song "Too Much to Ask" from his debut solo album, Flicker.


"US and Canada. The Flicker world tour is coming to you summer/autumn 2018," Horan tweeted to his 33.8 million followers.

"Can't wait to get back on the road & play this album for you. And... my good friend the incredible @MarenMorris is joining me for all of it," he added of the 27-year-old American country star.

Horan will kick off the North American portion of the tour July 18, 2018, in Woodlands, Texas, and bring the venture to a close Sept. 23 in West Palm Beach, Fla. Tickets will go on sale next Friday.

News of the tour follows the release of "Too Much to Ask" on Thursday. The piano ballad follows the debut of Horan's singles "Slow Hands" and "This Town."


"My new single 'too much to ask' is out now. I've been waiting ages for you to hear it, hope you enjoy it," the singer tweeted of the song.

Horan will release Flicker on Oct. 20. The album will debut nearly two years after he and One Direction announced an indefinite hiatus to focus on their personal lives and pursue their solo careers.
