The Brit superstars don’t yet fly out to Australia for until Tuesday, but already preparations are being made for a level of hysteria not seen on Austalian shores for years.
Extra security and police have been drafted in, ready to keep the expected thousands of screaming Directioners under control.
Even a forthcoming radio station appearance has been moved to a secret location at the cost of thousands, and a gig in Martin Place next week is costing Channel 7 an even larger amount
Increased worldwide publicity for the band is causing concerns, so authorities are making sure that absolutely nothing goes wrong.
A Sony Music source commented: “It’s like nothing we have ever dealt with before”, whilst an Austereo employee has urged fans and parents to exercise “common sense” ahead of the bands Sydney concerts.
Tickets for the concerts sold out in minutes when they went on sale in February.
Meanwhile, the world’s first One Direction Store has now opened in Sydney, with queues of fans camping outside in preperation for the grand opening.
So far, sales at the outlet have been extremely positive, though it’s not currently certain how long the shop will stay open for.
