“It’s gonna be a bit strange, right?”
Liam Payne will be making the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball rounds this year, hitting every city except Boston on the circuit from Nov. 28 in Dallas to Miami on Dec. 17. But while he has played the event before with One Direction, this marks the first time taking the Jingle Ball stage solo.
“It’s gonna be a bit strange, right?” Payne told Tuesday (Oct. 10) at the official iHeartRadio Jingle Ball launch event in New York City. "I really enjoy performing and I’m hoping everybody’s enjoying my songs. I really can’t wait -- it’s a great end to the year.”
Ironically, the last time Payne played a Jingle Ball was actually what would be One Direction’s last show in America to date, at KIIS FM’s event in Los Angeles in 2015. When looking back on that show, he does remember having a slight “What does the future hold?” moment with his bandmates, but it’s all turned out practically better than expected.
