Louis Tomlinson rolled through Texas this past week on his Faith in the Future World Tour. The Irving, Texas show marked the middle of his North American run, where he has spent his summer playing at sold-out venues across the US and Canada.
The venue was packed as fans braved the heat to spend the night singing along to every song in his jam-packed 22-song, 90-minute set. Tomlinson made his main stage entrance with “The Greatest”, a song penned with his fanbase in mind. The song also opens his latest record, Faith in the Future, which climbed the charts to #1 in the UK after its release in November.
While the set focused on tracks from Tomlinson’s newest album, (“Written All over Your Face”, “Saturdays”, “Face the Music” and “Bigger Than Me” among them) he also gave a nod to his debut album Walls (singing “Kill My Mind”, “Walls”, “We Made It”) and even included a few throwbacks from his earlier days as a member of One Direction, which he re-worked to showcase his own rock genre twist. He also thrilled the crowd with his cover of the Arctic Monkey’s ‘505″, and a rock revisit of his 2017 “Back to You” which originally featured Bebe Rexha.
It was clear that Tomlinson was in his element as the night rolled on. He worked the stage effortlessly and delivered vocally throughout his demanding setlist, and engaged with the crowd (including a balloon-popping gender reveal for a pregnant fan in attendance). He cracked jokes, charmed the crowd, and certainly made his mark on the fans in attendance with his high-energy performance. As he so famously does, Tomlinson also took moments during the show to express his gratitude to the fans in attendance, stating, “I would not be able to do these incredible shows without all of you, so thank you, thank you, thank you.”
If you’re looking to catch an amazing summertime show, Tomlinson continues his world tour through the US until the end of July, with dates in Europe and the UK scheduled in the coming months. Stops also include his annual Away From Home Festival, which changes locations each year and is being held in Italy in August.
