One Direction take to the stage in Edinburgh


One Direction came to Scotland last night with their ‘Where We Are’ stadium tour.

Breaking a record for the biggest single show in Scottish history, 1D sent their fans into a screaming frenzy as they belted out a catalogue of hits at Edinburgh’s Murrayfrield Stadium.

One Direction have been working hard to get back on the good side of fans after the wake of Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik drug video scandal.

Putting the scandal behind them and with a couple of well place tweets before and after the gig, the boys proved the show must go.

A sick Harry Styles proved to be a real trouper by joining the lads on stage, however the singer could hardly talk and told fans: “I’m feeling poorly tonight and finding it hard to talk. You might have to sing some of the parts for me.”

His band mates admitted he wasn’t up to scratch as they urged the crowd to help him along.

The lothario was certainly off his game, almost stumbling twice during the first few songs of the lads set.

He was also told to stop talking at one point after telling a lady in the audience whose boyfriend dumped her for going to the gig that she needed someone more considerate.

 

Kicking off with fireworks and Midnight Memories in a cloud of smoke they sang hits like Kiss Me and the whole the crowd chorused along.

 

The boys celebrated breaking a new record for the biggest single handed show in Scottish history by selling 64,000 tickets to the Murrayfield gig.

 

“We all got the email. We once played a club in Scotland for 800 people and now we we are in front of sixty five thousand,” said Liam to an ecstatic crowd of screaming fans.

 

“Scotland means a lot to us and now we’ve broken this record. It’s the first time we’ve played such a large show here in Edinburgh,” added Niall.

The band sang their way through many of their top hits, including Where You Belong, All These Little Things and What Makes You Beautiful, before getting into the Scottish spirit with a short rendition of 500 Miles while their backing musicians showed off their skills.

Rocking guitar track You and I also saw strong harmonies from Louis Tomlinson and the gang while Harry played with a microphone stand.

During Story of My Life Liam proudly displayed a saltire thrown from the audience.

Little White Lies went down a treat and Best Song Ever which came just before the final pyrotechnics got the whole stadium moving while cheeky chappy Niall pretended to use the Scots flag as a towel.
