Looks like we've got a winner in the race for the first One Direction member to book a solo show in Tampa Bay.
Liam Payne is the first act unveiled for the 2017 93.3-FLZ Jingle Ball, the station tweeted late Monday:
Radio conglomerate iHeartMedia, which organizes the nationwide Jingle Ball tour, had previously announced Payne and ex-Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello would be performing at select stops on the tour. But until Monday, neither had been officially confirmed for Tampa's show, which will take place Dec. 16 at Amalie Arena.
The rest of the 2017 Jingle Ball lineup will be unveiled at 5 p.m. Tuesday, and we'll bring it to you when it's live.
