Louis Tomlinson World Tour

Louis Tomlinson World Tour

Hannah Torrey, Writer

We made it, folks! The Louis Tomlinson World Tour is back in full swing after two years of postponements.

The tour resumed on Feb. 1, and this is Louis Tomlinson’s first solo tour after the release of his debut album, “Walls,” on Jan. 31, 2020. The Doncaster, England native singer-songwriter’s tour was originally supposed to begin and wrap up in 2020, but was held off after his Barcelona and Madrid shows in early March due to the pandemic.

Tomlinson has performed most of his songs on the album, including “Habit” and “Only the Brave,” as well as his unreleased song “Copy of a Copy of a Copy.” Also included in the setlist were covers of songs like Kings of Leon’s “Beautiful War” and Catfish and the Bottlemen’s “7.” One Direction songs like “Drag Me Down,” “Little Black Dress,” and “Through the Dark” were also performed.

Franklin High School junior Anabel Perez-Kocis attended the Manhattan show at the Hammerstein Ballroom on Feb. 11. She talked about the unique, welcoming, and special experience that the show gave her, as everyone was there to support him and it was a collective area for everyone to come together and listen to his music for one night.

Ever since his One Direction days, Tomlinson has had a strong connection with his fans. Perez-Kocis expressed that traveling to New York, waiting as long as she did, and being able to clearly tell that he cared so much about everyone in the venue, made the night one to remember.

Tomlinson also played in Boston on Feb. 17th at the House of Blues. Boston fans were eager to experience the concert as the line to get inside the venue was wrapped around a side street.

The opening act, Southern California band Sun Room, has been performing their songs including “Crashed My Bike” and “Summer’s Here.”

The tour began in Dallas, Texas, and Louis will be heading to Europe after his Los Angeles show on March 13th.

The tour still has about six months left until the last show in Milan, Italy, on Sept. 3.
