On Saturday 7 November, Niall Horan performed a special one-off live-streamed show in the empty Royal Albert Hall.

The Irish singer-songwriter sold more than 120,000 tickets to fans in over 150 countries, with profits from the show going to his touring crew who are currently unable to work and the #WeNeedCrew relief fund.
Wow! Over 120k tickets sold. We have achieved far beyond the amount of support we could have ever imagined. We thank
NiallOfficial</a> from the bottom of our hearts for speaking so eloquently about touring crew. We also want to thank everyone who supported & everyone involved. WNC x <a href="https://t.co/Ln4VPTifZe">pic.twitter.com/Ln4VPTifZe</a></p>— WeNeedCrew (WeNeedCrew) November 7, 2020
The setlist featured songs from Niall’s two smash hit albums Flicker and Heartbreak Weather, with a special appearance by American singer Ashe who flew in from the US and quarantined especially to duet with Niall on her hit Moral of The Story.
