One Direction

This is probably the lamest blog post ever written in the history of blogging but since the naive eyes of 12 year old Katie encountered the What Makes You Beautiful video back in 2011 she never really recovered??!! Will I ever get over my love of Harry Styles many may ask? The answer, I regret to inform you, is no. Never. Thanks to the ACE zoom on my camera I was able to zoom in on his dancing alllll niiight long last Saturday night.

UPDATE: It's been one week since Mollie and I saw One Direction & McBusted at the Cardiff Millenium Stadium in seats 11, 12 and 13 of block L21. I would love to be able to say that my head has got around that it actually happened but it still hasn't. I still spend my evenings listening to my videos on repeat and mourning the fact that time travelling still doesn't exist (someone should probably work on that- and fast).

McBusted performed a mixture of songs off their new album and a collection of old Mcfly and Busted Hits. Opening the show with Air Hostess and closing it with Year 3000 had everyone in a buzz. There setlist was brilliant (mostly because they played songs I knew every word to) and it was good to learn we were in among a very enthusiastic crowd. A highlight of the night was definitely the whole stadium doing the macarena and the 7 massive Mexican waves that occurred one after another with participation from everyone in the room. Saying that the real highlight was obviously every single One Direction song.

I can't pick an overall favourite moment. It's impossible. It was so good that in the morning both Mollie and I didn't want to open our eyes because it meant it was all over.

Every song was paired with some videos or little animations behind the boys over the massive screen. When they weren't walking along the walkway and couldn't be seen as easily you could watch them over the screens as if you were right up close. This was complemented by fire, streamers and sparks flying up into the air, they put on one HELL of a show. Girl Almighty, Stockholm Syndrome, Story of My Life and the finale Best Song Ever were my favourites live. Picking those four songs is the hardest decision I've ever had to make.

Many tears were shed at Little Things and Nialls solo got the best reception ever. When everyone shouted the words back at him you could just tell he was chuffed to bits and it melted my heart.

It was nice to be seated and not have to be thrown into the pit of screaming crying 12 year olds but all I wanted to do was get up and dance. Everyone knows it's an unspoken rule that you should remain seated if the people behind you are so they can still see. They NEVER stood up!!!! :( For Best Song Ever, the last song, we got on our feet and danced, stomped and waved our hands in the air like there was no tomorrow.

I'm so grateful that the night went slowly and didn't fly by as I had expected. I just wish I could do it all over again. I have never been so grateful for my parents driving us all the way and back. You rock.


  1. This post is most definitely not lame for me, the boys have changed my life since 2010 and bought me so much happiness, I won't go on but I'm sure you know exactly what I mean!
    So glad you got to see the boys and glad you had fun! (forever wishing zayn had never left *sigh*)
