Niall Horan performs "Slow Hands" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on May 25, 2017.

In this particular case, Niall Horan promises it's not Forever 21. Realizing that a number of his fans may have been disappointed when they saw the short list of cities on his upcoming Flicker Sessions World Tour announced on Monday (July 10), Horan took to Twitter on Tuesday morning (July 11) to reassure them that there's more to come.

"It's been incredible to see such an amazing reaction to the Flicker Sessions," Horan said in a hand-written note. "That you so much as per usual for your love and support. For those of you wondering why I'm not stopping nearer you this time please bear with me a little longer while I plan 2018. This is just the beginning and an opportunity for me to re-learn the craft of doing shows and touring in general."

Perhaps the member of on-hiatus stadium-fillers One Direction doth protest too much. While Niall's gentle acoustic singer/songwriter tunes might work better in smaller confines, surely there are plenty of fans who want to come out and see him do his solo thing. In case you missed the announcement, the tour will kick off on Aug. 29 at the 1,240-capacity Olympia Theatre in his native Ireland and hit similar-sized venues across Europe, the Far East, the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

The 21-date tour will keep Horan on the road for most of late summer and fall as it moves through London, Stockholm, Sydney, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Rio De Janeiro, Philadelphia, New York, Toronto, Boston, Washington D.C., Miami Beach, Orlando, Atlanta, Nashville, Chicago, Dallas and Phoenix before wrapping up in San Francisco on Nov. 22.
