No sooner have One Direction arrived in Australia for their massive “On The Road Again” tour and Liam Payne is already complaining. Singer Liam and his pals have been arriving in Australia over the last few days to complete final preparations for the 80-date world tour, and Liam is already voicing his discontent with life on the road.
During the last tour, which ended in October 2014, Liam Payne and Niall Horan both talked about the problems they had with living their lives in hotels and the pressures of life on the road. It is understandable that the boys would be fed up towards the end of a long tour, but Liam has started to complain before the first show has even started.
Liam has already taken to Twitter to voice his discontent about travel, a lack of sleep, and boredom. In a tweet yesterday, Liam said that he had watched The Wolf of Wall Street over 50 times.
Shortly afterwards, Liam was complaining about being “Super Bored” and even tweeted that he had been watching the children’s TV show SpongeBob SquarePants.
Unreality TV has suggested that Liam Payne may be hoping that this is the last One Direction tour. They explain that, because Liam and his band-mates Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, and Harry Styles are so easily recognized, they are trapped in their hotel rooms. Hundreds of fans and, of course, paparazzi photographers gather outside their hotel, trapping them inside.
Liam Payne and his pals are more or less prisoners in their hotel rooms, and generally only leave to go to and from the venues where they’re playing live. They do take the odd trip to break the monotony whilst they are on tour, which must become very tedious when it’s what you do for months at a time, year on year.
The Daily Telegraph posted photographs of hundreds of young female fans who had gathered at the airport in Sydney on Thursday when Liam, Harry, and Zayn arrived.
The Daily Mail reports that 21-year-old Liam and his mates gathered at the Allianz Stadium in Sydney for a final rehearsal less than 24 hours after arriving in the country. Liam looked tired and jet lagged on arrival, and if his tweets are anything to go by, he has not recovered from the long flight as yet.
Liam and Niall have spoken about the pressures of touring, and Zayn Malik has had problems coping with life in the spotlight in the past. In recent weeks, there have been numerous reports of One Direction members getting into collaborations and side projects. It has also been reported that tickets for the tour have not sold as well as in the past, and apparently prices for the Australian shows have been cut in half.
It might just be the case that Liam Payne and his pals are coming to the end of their shelf life, and that just might be a relief to them.
