Niall Horan To Join Shawn Mendes, Clean Bandit & Much More At Capital’s Summertime Ball
Zara Larsson, Stormzy and Maroon 5 will also be heading to Wembley Stadium on June 10!
Taking place at London’s Wembley Stadium on June 10, Niall will be performing alongside Shawn Mendes, Clean Bandit, Zara Larsson, Stormzy (!) and much more.
Speaking to Capital’s Roman Kemp, Niall said: "I don't know what it's like on my own, so we have to find that one out, but I've done the Summertime Ball before.
"We played a few nights at Wembley Stadium [as One Direction], and I'm looking forward to it.
"It's going to be a great day.”
Niall continued: "You get well looked after backstage, you more than likely get good weather – there's something about Capital's Summertime Ball that always has good weather!"
Does the prospect of playing in front of 80,000+ people get Horan nervous? Of course it does. "If you don't get nervous there's something wrong with you!" he said. "It's like, how can you not? You're stepping out in front of 80,000 people. It's going to be scary."
Tickets for Capital’s Summertime Ball go on sale this Thursday at 8 am right here.

Niall released his second solo single, the sexy, bass-slapping ‘Slow Hands’, last week. Make sure you listen here.
Discussing ‘Slow Hands’, Niall said: "The whole song was pretty off-the-cuff. I wanted it to be a little bit cheeky with the lyric.
"We wrote this concept about being in the bar. The first line of the song is 'We should take this back to my place' - usually that's what the guy would say, but we flipped it that the girl would say that, and that's what she said right to my face.
“With the song, before we even wrote lyrics, we had this big track and it sounded quite sexy,” Niall told Sirius XM Hits 1's Mikey Piff. “So we thought that this concept would match the vibe of the song, and I think we might have been right."
Niall's debut solo album might not have a concrete release date yet, but he reassured fans in the interview that it will be hitting soon.
