Where We Are Tour Concert Experience and Review

Standard

One Direction has wrapped up their third tour, the  Where We Are Tour. The lengthy tour started in April 2014, in Colombia, and ended in early October, in Miami, FL. Unlike the prior tours, all the venues for this one were stadiums. Allowing there to be a lot more fans, and a lot more noise. Believe me, my ears will never be the same.

I attended the Aug. 4 concert at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford. I was awaiting the concert for many months, so I was a mixture of happy, excited, and nervous on the day of. The concert not only included One Direction, but my other favorite band, 5 Seconds of Summer. They were the opening act, which was much anticipated (They’re having their own tour this summer, which I will be attending, too).

We left at 5 p.m. for the 8 p.m. concert to make sure we got there in time. There was traffic getting to and into the stadium, which was a given. While waiting in our car we talked to a police officer who told us that Ashton Irwin from 5 Seconds of Summer had walked by him a little earlier. Then we approached the opening to the stadium, and a group of hundreds of girls started screaming and running towards the SUV next to us. The truck made a quick turn into the side of MetLife, while security kept girls from jumping onto it. It seemed we were next to a member of One Direction the whole time, and didn’t even know it.

As if that wasn’t enough excitement, we went into the stadium and found our seats. We were in the nosebleeds, but it wasn’t that bad. You were able to see the big stage clearly. We waited in the hot sun for a while, and then they showed a 5sos promo. The crowd went crazy. Then, “Highway to Hell” came on, indicating it was time. The band was great, and it showed as thousands of fans sang along to their songs. They were the best opening act (which they don’t deserve to be called anymore) that I’ve ever saw.

After that, there was a pretty long wait for the big show. But it was cool to see the darkness of the night come upon us as the stadium filled. Helicopters flew ahead getting shots of the crowd. They played music and everyone sang together and danced. At one point, everyone did the Macarena.

Finally, the big show started. Parts of the band’s songs started playing, and then a video of them appeared on the jumbotron as music blared. The video showed them all over the world doing different activities. Then, they finally appeared.

Throughout the show they sang new songs, and some of their old songs. It was a great atmosphere and as a One Direction fan, it really was great to see how they, and their music, have developed over the years.
