One Direction bring the house down at Apple Music Festival


One Direction were given a rapturous welcome by fans as they headlined the fourth night of the Apple Music Festival in London.

The boy band opened their set with Steal My Girl in front of a packed audience at the Roundhouse in Camden.

Liam Payne said: “It’s amazing to be here. Thank you so much for coming down here to see us. It’s the first time we have played in London for ages.”

The band, who are due to take a hiatus for at least a year from March, had earlier announced the title and release date of their new album in a video message.

Made In The A.M will be released on November 13.

It follows the massive success of Drag Me Down – the first single released from the album – which topped the UK Singles Chart, climbed to third spot in the Billboard Chart in the US and broke streaming records globally.

The band’s set included songs from their four previous albums.

The band performed on a simple stage with a backing band and red lighting.

Fans joined in as they played some of their biggest hits including Story Of My Life, What Makes You Beautiful and Drag Me Down.
