1D! 1D! 1D! 1D! 1D!
This is what you will hear when the production and promoters announced that the hottest British-Irish boyband of today’s generation, One Direction is finally coming for their On The Road Again Tour concert in Manila. During the day of selling the tickets last year, Filipino Directioners lined up already even camped out, and as quick as the tornado tickets were already sold out. This is what the effect of One Direction to all the Filipino Directioners.
And last weekend, the boys of One Direction’s Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson has finally come for the first time in the Philippines to perform their On The Road Again Tour 2 days concert. Although it was sad because the boys is missing one member, Zayn Malik who signed off due to so much stressed, the show goes on and they sealed the hearts of Filipinos as they performed live at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds in Pasay City on Saturday, Day 1 March 21 and Sunday, Day 2 March 22 for the On The Road Again Tour 2015.
The boys gave their fans a night to remember a “post concert depression” despite of all the controversies before the show was started. Though its sorta sad and disappointing, Filipinos crowded to the venue as they are eager to scream loud and cheer for the boys.
The gates opened at 5pm, with flocked of fans rushing to their seats, screaming their favorite members’ names out loud. Even member Zayn Malik, who returned to the UK due to so much stressed was included in the screaming and fangirling. But it was drizzling out, but they didn’t care. This was One Direction. The Effect. This was it, rain or shine, they had to see them.
And before the show starts Malaysian DJ KC served as the opening act for the boys, and had the fans pumped up and on their feet. And finally the time comes and every single directioner screamed their hearts out when the intro played then followed by the boys opening song “Clouds” and performed other hits including
•Steal My Girl
•Little Black Dress
•Where Do Broken Hearts Go
•Ready To Run
•Better Than Words
•Don’t Forget Where You Belong
•Through The Dark
•Story of my Life
•You and I
•Little White Lies
and the most popular “What Makes You Beautiful.”
“Best Song Ever” from Midnight Memories closed the first and second night of the On The Road Again Tour Manila followed by one of a kind fireworks with shaped hearts.
It was an extremely wild night for Filipino Directioners everywhere as they sang their hearts out with One Direction members Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson and wished and hoped as Niall said that “we will see you soon” hopefully with Zayn Malik as One Direction.
