Hiiiii! So this weekend my friend Libby and I travelled all the way up to Manchester to see One Direction and 5 Seconds Of Summer on the Where We Are Tour and it was very, very fun!
It’s been a while since I’ve seen One Direction, the last time was April last year and since then I’ve changed my views on them a lot and stopped spending my time and effort on them so I wasn’t really excited to see them, I was mostly looking forward to watching my favourite Aussie foursome rock out on that huge stage (which was very weird as I’m used to seeing them in small venues). Anyway, One Direction really did seem to gain a little bit of my love back.
Last week wasn’t the best for One Direction with the whole weed smoking drama so I think some people were a bit wary of the tour from that moment onwards, but even with me and my friend Libby hurling weed related jokes at them the whole time – not in a malicious way, but just in a ‘we are drunk what are we even saying’ way – on our first night of the tour (31st May) I think a lot of people had brushed it to the side.
5 Seconds Of Summer opened the show and smashed it, we were the only ones around us going absolutely mental, showing our love for the boys and I think they won over the crowd so I’m very proud of them for that because I’ve seen them play a show to 200 people and then they’re now playing shows to 60,000+ – pretty mad! But they were awesome and got the crowd going. They managed to do that both nights I went and I’m so proud of them, their 10 song set list was great and included songs that a lot of the crowd seemed to know like their number 1 single She Looks So Perfect, their cover of Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream and their new single Don’t Stop. This is a big platform for the boys again as was the Take Me Home tour last year!
