Louis Tomlinson 2021 UK tour: See the One Direction singer solo
Louis Tomlinson is going on a massive world tour in 2021 (rescheduled from 2020), including four UK dates in London, Manchester, Glasgow and his hometown of Doncaster.
2020 has been a crucial year for the former One Direction Member: he released his debut studio album on 31 January 2020, titled Walls led by the singles “Two of Us”, “Kill My Mind” and “We Made It”. The album made it to 6th place in the top 10 of the UK's biggest debut albums of 2020 as Spotify finally created a Louis Tomlinson playlist.

Although he was forced to postpone his UK tour dates twice already amid ongoing covid-19 restrictions, he managed to perform solo for his fans on a live streaming concert and he's now looking forward to be back and perform in front of an audience.
The track “Two of Us” was dedicated to Tomlinson’s late mother Johannah Deakin, who passed away from cancer in December 2016 at the age of 43. Tragedy struck again in March earlier this year when his 18-year-old sister Félicité died of an accidental overdose. Fortunately, Tomlinson found the strength carry on and channeled his emotions into incredible music for his fans.
Tomlinson tells The List about his fans: “They're incredible people, super dedicated when I was in the band, and it's carried on throughout. There will be different awards that I get nominated for and, again, I've not had an album out, and they'll just vote super hard! They're just incredible people, so I feel like, I owe it to them to make the best album I can and to get it out at some point. And now we're there!”
His One Direction bandmates Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Liam Payne have also put out solo material recently — so the friendly competition is stronger than ever. Zayn Malik, who left the group in March 2015, has also been performing on his own. Though it’s been over five years, Tomlinson still isn’t sure if he’ll ever be able to forgive his former mate’s post-exit trash talk.
According to Metro, Tomlinson said, “At the moment, I am still pretty mad about the whole thing. I don’t think he [Zayn] handled it very well. But never say never. Who knows? He chatted a lot of s*** in the early days. I thought One Direction were pretty good.”
Do you think One Direction were pretty good, too? Then you’d best get ready for the Louis Tomlinson UK tour. Keep reading for everything you need to know before you go in 2021.

Are One Direction getting back together in 201?
Currently, there are no plans for a One Direction reunion — particularly as all of their solo careers appear to be doing well. That said, Simon Cowell has predicted Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Liam Payne will get back together within the near future.
The Evening Standard quotes The X Factor judge as saying, “So they could do tour after tour after tour. You know you could sell out a One Direction Stadium tour in about twenty seconds. So yeah, I would say within five years. That’s only a guess. Not that I know, it’s only a guess.”
Cowell’s prediction is not just a sign of the times — bandmate Harry Styles also told Rolling Stone: “I don’t think I’d ever say I’d never do it again, because I don’t feel that way. If there’s a time when we all really want to do it, that’s the only time for us to do it, because I don’t think it should be about anything else other than the fact that we’re all like, ‘Hey, this was really fun. We should do this again.’”
