‘I Kneed To Get Better’: One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson Apologises To Fans For Not Being Able To Jump Around On Stage
Their energetic performances is one of the reasons why One Direction are now worldwide superstars.
But it seems that Louis Tomlinson got a little bit over-excited during the boy band’s Belfast concert this week, injuring his knee during the Irish leg of the Take Me Home tour.
Obviously upset that his injury has left him having to hobble through the band’s songs, the 21-year-old apologised to his fans on his Twitter account.
The young singer, who has been touring the UK and Ireland with One Direction since the beginning of the year may have over-exerted himself during one high-energy routine, leaving himself with a painful leg.
And the results of his injuries were clear to see as he spent Monday’s show limping around the stage rather than joining in with the others boys.
Obviously embarrassed about his poor knee, the heartthrob decided to aplogise to all of his fans on Twitter for the fact that he wouldn’t be able to give his usual calibre of high-energy performing for the next few days.
‘Ah well f**k it . I apologise if I’m not jumping around on stage as much , stupid knee ! #kneedtogetbetter ( terrible joke),’ he wrote, cracking a joke in the process.
Not long before Louis had clearly been feeling sorry for himself, writing: ‘Knee hurts :(,’ before adding yet another sad face for added drama.
And the former X Factor star got some extra sympathy from band-mate Niall Horan, who tweeted: ‘Belfast! That was an amazing , poor aul Tommo an his knee! Hahaha! Great week up here ! See ya soon! #1DTMHT.’
But Louis won’t have long to recuperate as the band are going to be on the road for much of the year, touring the rest of the UK before heading to the US in June.
The band have also just announced an extra date for their sell-out tour, which will be at London’s O2 Arena on 6 April.
While Liam was resting his knee during the boys’ Dublin, band-mate Harry Styles and Niall were making the most of the nightlife.
With their 2012 tour of the United States completely sold out and commitments lined up for the rest of the year that will keep them from returning, One Direction has gone ahead and scheduled a tour of North American arenas for Summer 2013.
Fans gobbled up tickets to the British boy band’s May/June 2012 tour, as well as its Dec. 3 show at NYC’s Madison Square Garden. The group announced on Thursday that their 2013 world tour will begin a 25-city run in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. on June 13 and will stop in New York City, Chicago, Denver, Montreal and Las Vegas before wrapping up in Los Angeles on Aug. 7.
Tickets go on sale Saturday April 21, at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.
“Our fans are simply the best in the world,” member Niall Horan says. “The support they have shown us has been incredible and we’re all so grateful to each and every one of them. We can’t wait to see everyone this summer, at Madison Square Garden and of course when we play our world tour in 2013.”
1D recently made chart history by scoring a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart, becoming the first U.K. act to see their debut album start in the top spot. The group — Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry and Louis — performed on “Saturday Night Live” on April 7 and appeared in a recent episode of “iCarly.”
Their 2012 headlining trek through North America kicks off on May 24 in Fairfax, Va.

One Direction Announce Headlining Concert At Madison Square Garden
The boys, who finished third on ‘The X Factor’ season 7, are going to perform live at the MSG in the Big Apple on December 3.
One Directionmight not be able to perform at the White House this coming weekend, but they make it up to their fans by announcing a headlining concert at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City. The boys are scheduled to invade the MSG in December.
The gig is promised to be a “massive” one in order to finish off the boyband’s “amazing year” throughout 2012. In the first quarter of the year, they have already busted the U.S. charts and became the first U.K. group to ever debut at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 200 at first try, thanks to their album “Up All Night“.
In addition to closing their eventful year, the upcoming concert is also held due to overwhelming popular demand of the band’s summer tour Stateside. Niall Horan and his bandmates won’t hit the road until May 24, but have completely sold out tickets for the upcoming roadshow.
The MSG concert is scheduled to take place on December 3 with tickets going on general sale starting Friday, April 6 at 5 P.M. EST.
One Direction are a British-Irish boy band made up of Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik. They took part in the 10th series of X Factor UK in 2010 where they finished in third place.

The boys are also signed to Columbia Records in the United States, and made history when they became the first British group in US chart history to enter at #1 on Billboard 200 with their debut album. One Direction have also performed during a sold-out tour and won several awards. Since being formed in 2010, the band have sold over 15 million records worldwide. Read more?
