ONE Direction kicked off their world tour in style this afternoon with a massive London show.
The chart-topping quintet of Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan, packed out the O2 Arena for a matinee performance.
And after the event a thrilled Louis tweeted: “Loved it !!!!”
Girls flocked to the south London venue with messages of love for their idols.
One held a picture of Harry aloft simply reading: “I heart you Harry.”
While another banner professed adoration for both Harry and Louis with the message: “U are hot, cute and handsome.”
But there was much love for the whole group outside the capital’s concert venue.
The boys went for a casual look on stage with Liam wearing a simple T-shirt with the CND logo on it.
At one point he took a rest by parking his bum on a convenient speaker.
Niall and Louis enjoyed an elegant twirl in the middle of the stage.
Heart-throb Harry — who showed his appreciation for the Rolling Stones in a rock legend’s top — tweeted before the gig: “Tomorrow. Boom Baby.”
Niall posted a snap of the venue and tweeted: “It’s happening ! We’re here #TMHtour is kicking off.”
And it’s going to be hectic year for the youngsters as their world tour sees them staying in the UK until April 19 before heading to Europe and the US.
They will be on the road until November when the tour comes to an end in Japan.
Liam also showed his excitement by tweeting “Tour dayyyyy! :)”
And the guys are going to be Up All NIght performing their evening show.
