Seeing One Direction in Concert! Again!

On Sunday evening Becky and I went to see One Direction in concert at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle....We went with my friend, her daughter and her friend.....A couple of my other friends were there too but were seated elsewhere....

Last year when we saw them in Sunderland we were sat right at the back.... This time we were just about level with the stage at the side....Fantastic seats!!


Jamie Lawson was the supporting act. It turns out he was the first artist signed by Ed Sheeran to his new label....

 
I didn't have a clue who he was until he sung Wasn't Expecting That....Such a sad but lovely song!! He is one to watch out for!! He seems like a nice guy!! Last time we saw 1D in concert they were supported by 5 Seconds of Summer and they were new and not big in the UK and look at them now...



Just after half past eight One Direction appeared! They're a funny bunch....Niall the little Irish guy had me bad laughing doing his "Geordie" accent....Then the singing began and they sung for a good couple of hours....A few songs I didn't know but lots that I did!! Yes I was singing along and dancing! I did sit a few out though.....My poor back couldn't handle standing for over two hours!

 
It was strange with Zayn Malik not there but the four of them still sounded great....The lights were amazing! At one point they had a box above their head and the lights looked like a cage around them.....Very clever!

Becky had a fab time...In the weeks leading up to the concert she didn't seem bothered but on Sunday she did get very excited....Way more than I thought she would! She said if they tour again she want's to see them but after this tour they are supposedly taking a break so time will tell!

By the time we got home it was about half past eleven....Becky was still on a high so it was midnight by the time she went to bed....Taking into account for the clocks changing the night before it was really 1am.....She did well and thankfully had a long lie in Monday morning....hehehe

  2. Looks like you both had a great time, my children are secret 1D fans, I know because I can hear them singing along to their songs ! And my eldest son resembles Harry, which I think he secretly likes...
