One Direction has been showing that they have a great deal of gravity as a band — but they also may show that they can defy gravity in an upcoming video for “Drag Me Down” filmed at a major space center.
One Direction has been laboring through their On The Road Again American tour, and Mother Nature has definitely shown her dark side in the form of excessive heat.
Despite this, each One Direction concert has shown the band being especially enthusiastic. In fact, newer reports are quick to point out that the gravity of One Direction is especially fierce when it comes to rock touring.
About their “supernatural” performances, One Direction reviewer Amanda Steiner writes the following on August 7 for Entertainment Weekly.
“Ever since One Direction lost Zayn Malik… its four remaining members have been bringing heretofore unseen amounts of energy and enthusiasm to their live shows… it’s clear that they’ve been stepping out on stage ever since Malik’s departure with something to prove. Judging by their performance to a crowd of 80,000 screaming attendees at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Wednesday, they’ve more than hit their stride as a four-piece and are eager to share their hard work with their fans.”
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, in June, there was some skepticism that One Direction was failing at touring in 2015 — despite huge ticket sales in 2014.
Regardless, Rolling Stone stated the following on August 6 about why One Direction should be proud of themselves.
“For the past five years, the world’s biggest pop group has been the world’s biggest classic-rock band, doing their ‘Baba O’Riley’ remake every night for 60,000 screaming girls. ‘People like us don’t get to play stages like this,’ Harry Styles said last night at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, and he’s right. Strange but true: One Direction are on top of the classic-rock stadium-band pyramid these days.”
On top of gaining notoriety in unexpected ways by being compared to The Who’s “Baba O’Reily,” they have released a new single as a teaser to the One Direction album coming out at the end of 2015. On August 5, Billboard writes, “One Direction [is] headed for Hot 100’s Highest Debut of 2015 with ‘Drag Me Down.'”
Along with the extreme popularity of “Drag Me Down,” they are releasing a video of them being unable to be dragged down (perhaps) — with the help of NASA.
The Daily Mail reports on August 7 the following rumors via an insider source close to One Direction.
“To their fans, they are out of this world, but One Direction have come one step closer to making that a reality. The chart-topping boy band will film their video for new single ‘Drag Me Down’ at the NASA Space Center in Houston, Texas… [One Direction] managed to convince bosses at the iconic headquarters to allow them to use their airfields, training equipment and facilities to shoot the promo.”
