The time as come for Liam Payne to follow his One Direction band mates on the solo stage. Each of his comrades have done the nerve wracking step of walking out on that stage solo, all in various different ways. Louis Tomlinson on X Factor, Harry Styles on Saturday Night Live, and Niall Horan at One Love Manchester as well as others.
For Payne, his solo performance debut will be at the Capitol Records Summertime Ball this Saturday!
The show has 1D ties already, of course, with former band mate Zayn Malik pulling out of the show last year due to anxiety issues, and Niall Horan slotted for later the same day as Payne. The show kicks off at 3pm with mega star Bruno Mars leading the opener.
The event is already sold out, with other stars such as Ariana Grande and Little Mix setting to take the stage.
