Louis Tomlinson performed live from London for a special streamed gig, and the show proved to be a record-breaking success.
Louis Tomlinson returned to the stage after his plans for a world tour in 2020 were thrown off track, heading to the O2 in London after selling an incredible 160,000 tickets for his live-stream concert.
The One Direction star organised the show to help raise money for causes close to his heart, including Fareshare and live events crews out of work due to the pandemic.
Louis’ concert was the biggest male solo artist live stream of the year, landing himself a Guinness World Record for all the tickets sold.
Taking to Twitter after the achievement was announced, Louis wrote: "Can’t get my head round this! Thank you to anyone who watched the stream. Very proud moment!"
Louis stayed on a high after the concert, taking to Twitter to thank fans for their support.
He wrote: “The biggest f*****g thanks to all of you. None of this is possible without your support. Another big win for us today. Love to you all.”
The 29-year-old sang a mix of his newest and older hits and the entirety of his album ‘Walls’ including ‘Just Hold On’ and ‘Two of Us’.
He also treated fans to a new song, ‘Copy of a Copy of a Copy’ which obviously they loved.

And it wouldn’t be a 1D member’s show without a little nostalgia, so he sang ‘Little Black Dress’ – a regular on Louis’ live set lists since he began his solo career.
Louis also put his own spin on ‘Drag Me Down’.
All of the star’s shows for 2020 were rescheduled to 2022, with the tour planned to resume in a matter of months.
