As everyone must know, One Direction are set to split, at least temporarily, early in the new year. Fans of the boy-band in North America are getting used to the fact that One Direction have just three shows left on the continent. By the weekend, fans may be saying goodbye to One Direction forever. In recent months, there has been a huge amount of discussion about how One Direction show tickets have been sold for face value or less, but all that has changed since the announcement that a split is on the horizon.
September 24 sees One Direction’s “On The Road Again” tour finally arrive in the U.K. and Ireland, where they will play 25 shows in eight venues. The final shows are scheduled for the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield around Halloween. It seems that fans are determined not to miss out on what could well prove to be One Direction’s final ever shows.
Various members of One Direction have taken to social media to reassure fans that their break will be a temporary one. Niall Horan took to Twitter to indicate that the band will be taking a break, but that they still have lots they want to achieve.
Despite Horan’s reassurance, it was recently reported in Inquisitr that One Direction’s mentor, Simon Cowell, has indicated that there are no firm plans in place for a One Direction reunion after their break. It seems that fans are not taking any chances, and ticket prices on the second-hand reselling market have soared in recent weeks. The Chronicle reports that One Direction is taking the matter so seriously that they have held back some tickets and made them available through an app, called Twickets, at face value.
This will no doubt be a huge relief to One Direction fans still seeking tickets for the final shows in Sheffield. International Business Times reports that tickets for these shows are in huge demand. Tickets for the final show are selling on reselling site “Get Me In” for up to £1,650 ($2,500).
