Niall Horan: Flicker World Tour (Hartford, Connecticut)

Niall Horan Meet & Greet Hartford-82-X2

What an amazing week I’ve had! On Friday September 14, I had the chance to experience a once in a lifetime opportunity, which was meeting Niall Horan! I can’t really describe the feeling, but all I can say is that it was amazing. Niall was so sweet and welcoming, and having the chance to meet him after waiting so long was truly memorizing. Absolutely a day I’ll remember. His setlist has changed a little since I last saw him earlier this spring in Dublin, Ireland. His setlist now consists of songs such as, On the Loose, The Tide, This Town, Paper Houses, You and Me, Dancing in the Dark, Seeing Blind, Flicker, Fools Gold, Too Much To Ask, So Long, Life In The Fast Lane, Since We’re Alone, Fire Away, Finally Free, On My Own, Drag Me Down, Slow Hands, and Mirrors. Even though I loved all of the songs he performed, my favorites included, Flicker, So Long, Finally Free, Slow Hands, and especially Seeing Blind.

One of the things I really enjoyed before he started singing Flicker, is he asked everyone to put their phones away. Flicker means so much to him as an artist, and he wanted everyone to not only enjoy the song, but also enjoy being serenaded. Yes, I did shed a few tears during the song, but how can you not? Flicker touched me in so many ways that I truly can’t describe. The live version is very different because it brings out so many emotions. In my opinion, I feel that the song means so much more to me, when I hear it live because your right their being serenaded.

During his performance, he had Maren Morris come on stage to perform the song Seeing Blind with him. Both Niall and Maren did a wonderful job performing the song. Definitely my favorite duet. I really loved how Maren’s voice complemented Niall’s voice. Towards the end of the show, Niall gave us a wonderful surprise by singing his newest released song Finally Free from the animated movie Smallfoot which comes out in theatres on September 28.

Maren Morris (Hartford, Connecticut)

Maren Morris is an American country singer who has won multiple awards, including a Grammy. She has also toured around the UK, Ireland, and the US for her sold-out Hero tour in 2017. This past week, I went to see Maren open for Niall Horan at the Xfinity Theatre in Hartford, CT. I was truly amazed by her performance. She sang songs off her Hero album which included Just Another Thing, Rich, I Could Use A Love Song, How It’s Done, Second Wind, Once, 80’s Mercedes, My Church, and her latest single The Middle. Even though I loved every song she performed during the forty minutes she was on stage, my top favorites included, Rich, I Could Use A Love Song, 80’s Mercedes, My Church, and The Middle. She did a fantastic job opening for Niall. Definitely, my favorite opening that Niall has had on his tour. Maren is a very talented artist with an angelic voice. She really puts herself out there for the audience to feel her passion and emotions with a lot of energy and excitement when performing. During her performance, two of the songs she got emotional was during My Church, and The Middle. My Church was the first song to be released from her album Hero. It was also the song that she won her Grammy, and it started her career. It has continued to do well on the music charts. Finally, The Middle, which is a song she released earlier this year, has managed to reach number one on the music charts. What a tune!!!! It has more of a pop sound, whereas her songs off her Hero album have more of a country sound. I look forward to seeing her again soon!
