Louis Tomlinson abruptly stopped his show on Wednesday (Feb. 2) in Texas after he spotted a fan who reportedly fainted in the crowd near the barricade.
The 30-year-old One Direction singer was in the midst of his second concert of his sold-out world tour when he noticed a fan in distress near the front of the crowd at The Moody Theater in Austin, Texas. Upon seeing the fan named Paige, who supposedly fainted, he halted the concert to make sure she was taken care of and help before continuing on with his epic performance.
In a clip shared by a fan on YouTube, Tomlinson is seen stopping the show and having his team turn on the lights to make sure everything was okay with the concertgoer.
“Can we get the lights on please? I think someone’s passed out, security, security,” Tomlinson said over the speakers as he pointed out an audience member.
“Are you alright love?” he asked the fan, before kindly offering her his bottle of water.
“Can we just make sure she’s alright? Let’s get her some water. Here I’ll take the lid off, you can have mine,” Tomlinson added as he generously gave her his water.
“Okay, she’s alright,” Tomlinson told the crowd. “I hope you’re doing alright love.”
He then made sure the rest of the capacity crowd was okay before resuming his sold-out concert in Austin and performing “Defenceless,” a track that appears on his debut album, WALLS, which recently surpassed 600 million streams on Spotify.
Tomlinson never fails to ensure his fans safety at his concerts as this is not the first time he has stopped his live performance to help a distressed fan, further proving his love for his fans.
Presented by Live Nation, the Louis Tomlinson World Tour, marks the One Direction member’s first solo tour, will continue through March 13, making stops in Philadelphia, Chicago, Nashville, New York, Portland and more before wrapping up in Los Angeles.
The trek comes in support of his debut solo album, WALLS, which was released in January 2020. The album has gone on to sell over a million copies since its release and has reached No. 1 on Worldwide iTunes Album Chart and No. 1 on iTunes Album Chart in 50 countries. The project also debuted at No. 4 on the UK Official Charts, No. 2 for UK Official Album sales as well as No. 8 on Rolling Stone’s Top Albums Chart and No. 9 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Recently, on August 30, 2021, Tomlinson hosted and headlined his own one-day free music event in London, dubbed The Away From Home Festival, which was entirely curated by the “Walls” singer himself. The festival hosted 8,500 fans at Crystal Palace Bowl and followed his record-breaking Live From London livestream concert, which took place in December 2020 and broke the Guinness World Record for most tickets sold for a livestreamed concert by a solo male artist.
In May 2021, Tomlinson signed a global partnership with BMG, so stay tuned for new music coming in the near future.
