Down one member (#ByeZane) but still pumping out planet-eating pop, the 1D lads stop off at The O2. With only 20,000 screaming girls per night, rather than the 90,000 the boys faced at Wembley last year, it should be a relatively intimate affair. Keep an eye out for heroic dads weathering the storm.

I took my very excited 9 year old daughter last night. The tickets were her Christmas present - so she had been waiting a long time. I paid a fortune for the tickets and we were pretty much right at the top of the O2. The stage and the band were literally distant dots so we could only see the action on the screens.


I realise I am not the target audience and not a true fan. I went expecting to have a good time and see a really spectacular show - akin to when I have seen Take That. I was massively disappointed - the set was dull and lifeless, they had no interesting costumes or routines. It felt lazy and disrespectful. Add to that they had 'technical difficulties' with one song and had to have 4 goes at doing it and how eye wateringly expensive everything was. £15 for a programme, £3 for a bag of candy floss, £10 for a neon hair bow, £25 for a baseball cap and I had a slightly sour taste.


It was really fun taking my daughter who was very overwhelmed by the whole thing and did love being there - but equally I felt sorry for her that the £20 birthday money she had saved up went almost nowhere.


I realise my review will make no difference to 'the fans' and others probably have v low expectations of the band - but I was really shocked at how dull it was.
