Returning to the Stage

The last time many fans saw Tomlinson in concert was during One Direction’s 2015 On The Road Again tour. Back then, the group performed at various stadiums around the world. Now, Tomlinson is making stops in smaller, more intimate venues for his 2022 tour.

Only The Brave

According to the blog by LTHQ official, a lot of fan projects have been taking place at the singer’s concerts. For example, during his Feb. 20 show in Detroit, many in the audience held up Pride flags during his performance of “Only The Brave.”
