One Direction plan visits for family and closest friends on world arena tour
One Direction are reportedly planning to take their friends and family on tour.
The British boyband kicked of their world Where We Are Tour last week in Colombia, and will be on the road with it until October.
In a bid to stop them feeling homesick the group - made up of Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan - have apparently made plans for their loved ones to join them on the road.
“The boys got so homesick last time and wanted to make sure they had friends and family with them during this tour,” an insider revealed to British newspaper Daily Star. “They find hotel rooms so lonely.”
The new stadium tour will see the boys take in dates in North America, Latin America and Europe.
Harry, 20, is said to be especially keen not to have too much down time alone and has organised various dates for his family to visit.
“Harry has divided up dates between his parents, sister and mates so that he isn’t by himself for much of the tour. Harry’s dad Des and mum Anne will fly out separately during the American leg,” the source added.
“Niall has a close-knit group of mates from Ireland and he wants to them to be there.”
Loved up Louis and Liam reportedly want their other halves to be there, while Zayn doesn’t want to spend too much time away from fiancé Perrie Edwards, star of girlband Little Mix.
“Louis and Liam also hope to have their girlfriends travelling with them for most of the time. And Zayn will see his fiancée as much as possible. They all just want a bit of home with them,” the insider concluded.
