One Direction are having a well-earned break tonight after performing three gigs in a row on their debut US “Better With You” tour. According to most reports, the boys are going down a storm so far, and many observers are even commenting how they are outshining the headline act, Big Time Rush.
Controversially, some fans have even been seen to leave the concerts after 1D have finished performing their seven-song setlist.
Here’s a couple of reviews of last nights gig:
“During the Toronto premiere performances for both acts in the ACC’s concert bowl setting, it was One Direction who came out to the biggest, most natural response, with the estimated 3,500 predominantly female audience members raising the roof on pure decibel power at the first appearance of Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry and Louis (really, are second names even necessary at this point?).”
Mr. Will-W Review:
“Hot off the success of their BRIT Awards win last week in the category of Best British Single with What Makes You Beautiful, One Direction celebrated their Victory to happy cheers from the crowd, who for the first time tonight, were graced by the Band’s presence in Toronto. Performing a fantastic version ofKings of Leon‘s Use Somebody and zipping through hits like One Thing and Album Title Track, Up All Night, their energy was absolutely infectious despite performing only to Backing Tracks – no bells and whistles. The only complaint that could be heard among the sold-out crowd was that their 30-minute Set was far too short. Forgivable I suppose, considering that their stateside Debut Up All Night won’t be in-stores till March 13, 2012 via Sony Music Canada.”
Toronto Flash Mob
Ok, here’s something pretty damn amazing. Following on from the One Direction Flash Mobs that we’ve seen in Australia and other countries, yesterday it was Toronto, Canada’s turn – and how they did it. Check out the choreographed moves. Amazing!
Back to the gig, here’s a fan video from last night, with 1D singing “What Makes You Beautiful”. The angle it’s shot at gives a nice perspective to the show.
Elsewhere, Harry Styles was talking to The Diary about their new Brit Award, and he said: “I’ll put it on display in my toilet. You don’t want to put it somewhere too show-offy, like in the hall or on your mantelpiece, so if you put it in the bathroom everyone’s going to have to go in there at some point anyway!”
Good thinking Harry, we like your style!
