Niall Horan Filming Show For RTÉ

Niall Horan is filming a new show for RTÉ.

The Mullingar native is to record an exclusive performance with a 45 piece RTÉ Concert Orchestra for a new show that will air in May on RTÉ One.

The former One Direction star and the orchestra will play tracks off Horan's debut solo album Flicker including his hit singles This Town, Slow Hands and On The Loose.

Speaking about the experience, Horan said: "I made an album that came from the heart, my heart is in Ireland and I feel that there's no better way to go on national television and play those songs with a 45-piece orchestra - and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra is one of the best in Europe, if not the world."

Conductor Gavin Murphy who will put together special arrangements for the show said: "All of us at the RTÉ Concert Orchestra are really looking forward to working with Niall and his band. Studio 1 is a very special place for music and we are very excited about playing our arrangements of his great songs.

"We has a rehearsal on Friday and there was a bit of magic in the air - and hopefully this will give his fans around the world a chance to hear Niall performing his big hits in a brand new way."
