I wrote this nearly exactly two year ago about One Direction’s IZOD Center gig: “Watching a band at the height of their first round of popularity, in front of thousands and thousands of screaming fans, giving it all they have, is really a special feeling: It isn’t like nightclubs or superstar performances, or blues great: it is the thrill of youth, the thrill of the new. I guess a working class hero IS something to be, One Direction were terrific.”
yes indeed, it was all true, One Direction were a five piece and they were huge and it was a thrill. Two years later they are a four piece and they are less huge and it is a lot less thrilling… That’s why they have to sell tickets on Groupon…

Honda Civic Tour Presents One Direction
- Their records sold: over 46 million
- Their social-media stats: 3 billion YouTube views, 109 million combined Twitter followers, 33 million Facebook fans
- Their latest album: Four
- Where you saw them last: on their record-obliterating Where We Are Tour and its corresponding concert film

Wow, it now costs more to see an IMAX movie than 1D -they aren’t big enough for Stadiums any more. What happens next? The fifth album will tell the story but days when people were paying $500 to see them at Jones Beach appear to be over. I am glad I saw them at their height.

the riffs have never been so heavy
I bet Sub Pop were overjoyed as well
