Liam and Niall tweeted their unhappiness after the band were mobbed in Manhattan, and it seems security has now been increased to prevent anything more serious happening in the future.
Talking with The Sun, a source said:
“It was crazy. As they left the hotel on 54th Street this sea of girls engulfed them. Their security was desperately trying to keep them safe but they were completely surrounded”.
The group will now have a bigger security presence on future outings – so Directioners might find it a bit harder to get closer to the boys.
One Direction are currently in Toronto, Ontario, and played the first of two concerts last night.
Here’s a snippet of a gig review from the Toronto Sun:
“There are two things about Canada that we really love,” said Harry. “One is poutine. And the second is YOU lot.” Having recently interviewed Niall and Louis during an earlier promo stop in Toronto, I knew they were charming and cute. What I didn’t really prepare myself for was that they all can actually sing in concert. And they’re cheeky too. Read the review in full at the Toronto Sun’s website.
Also, watch them performing the ‘Inbetweeners Dance’ in this great vid below:
Olly Murs has now joined the band on their tour, tweeting the following excited message:
“Oi oi @NiallOfficial have landed in TORONTO!! Its on @onedirection tour!! Can’t wait to get started!!”
