Niall has been busying jetting all over the globe with his One Direction band mates Harry, Liam, Louis and Zayn as part of the Where We Are Tour.

The tour, promoting their third studio album Midnight Memories, officially kicked off in Colombia last month.

The boyband are gracing Irish audiences with their presence in Croke Park this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
