The National Stadium hosted about 30 000 mostly young female fans of the British Boy band One Direction.

As many as 8000 Fans queue up early ahead of the One Direction concert yesterday, some turning up in the wee hours of the morning just so they could get the best spots in the free-standing area of the concert

The gig is the bands first in Singapore and is one of the largest shows by a western pop act here in recent times.

The Straits Times reported that at least one grandmother was in the crowd, accompanying her 14 year old granddaughter and her friends.

It must be tough to be a One Direction fan (or a grandmother to a fan). But for the chance to see their idols LIVE and to scream their names at the top of their voices, it must be worth all the inconveniences.

As One Direction continue their On the Road Tour Again, fans continue to outdo themselves with unique signs and antics at their event.

Singaporeans it seems, do not want to be left out.

Two girls show that they can up the ante with international #Directioners (Fans of One Direction)

They plan to “catch the air in the concert and keep it forever”.

Good luck with the ziplock bags girls. Just a hint, breath is air and air goes in various directions not One Direction.
