“Obviously, you have to be in a good position mentally, but I also think, to a certain degree, when you’re signing up to something, you should see it through,” One Direction‘s Louis Tomlinson told 92.3 AMP Radio when asked about Justin Bieber‘s recently canceled tour.
The Purpose World Tour started back in March 2016 and abruptly ended last week with the cancellation of the remaining shows. While it is no surprise that Bieber was exhausted and needed a break, Tomlinson was adamant that committing to your fans comes first. “There’s never enough that I can say or do for the fans,” the singer said.
Tomlinson is no stranger to extreme schedules and working under pressure himself, both in a boy band and on his own. What keeps him going and full of energy? His fans, because “at the end of the day, it’s the people who are buying the records that are putting you where you are.”
Tomlinson’s first solo single “Back to You” recently landed him the top spot on the Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks chart, making him the final member of One Direction to reach No. 1 on the tally. The song, featuring Bebe Rexha and Digital Farm Animals, is the first look at Louis’ upcoming solo album.
