A Fangirl's Guide to Surviving a One Direction Concert | HuffPost
Aug 12, One of my good friends, Alyce, is a huge One Direction fan, and had the soundcheck and a meet & greet with the band, which apparently. Aug 4, One Direction announced the North American leg of their “On the Road which is where I attended my first One Direction concert on their “Up All Night” tour. Though a meet-and-greet was not included, the air-conditioned. Dec 17, My 1D experience: This is a detailed explanation of what happened when Of course, it was a private meet and greet and no one knew about it so all . The boys all like squeezed into a tight Direction One pack and I was just.
So we get to the concert and we went up to the box office to ask if they had any tickets left. We went until the show started before asking again. So we went up to a different lady and asked again and she was kind of sketchy like in a drug deal way about it. So we flipped out and I was shaking at this point because I had loved the boys for only 6 months and I never thought this would happen.
The concert was amazing! I cried when Na Na Na came on cause I was they are real! This is a picture of how close I was to the boys with no zoom!

I still reblog pictures of Tampa and I still cry when I watch videos from Tampa cause it was the first time I ever saw them! So after the concert, me and my bestfriend tried following the bus but we relizaed that we were ahead of them soo we just decieded to go home because we were going to try and meet them in Orlando. We were third in line.
So I just stared ahead waiting for someone to come out.

And guess who did??? Once they did, I could see clearly into the room and there they were: Standing in a semi circle all smiley and real. I literally stopped in front of Niall and Harry they were the closest and was incapable to walk any farther, or talk, or think, or breathe. All I could really do was stare at Harry. Let me just say, that boy is perfect: I just gaped at his perfect curls, his cross necklace, the bird tattoo peeking in from under his white shirt, his really long skinny legs, his hand and asajbdejwbjfkawef lk.

So she pulled my tmh album out of my hand and passed it to the boys so they could sign it. He then passed it to Niall and looked down at me. Now to the best moment of my entire life: Harry Edward Styles smiled at me, held out his hand, and said: I just shook his hand really slowly and for a really long time.
Now can we just discuss how SOFT his hands are? Like the same texture as japanese cheesecake. I eventually looked down at his hand with the album with it but all I could see was his arm idk it was a nice looking arm.
And yeah, long story short, instead of taking the CD from him I stroked his arm. Yes, I now regret embarrassing myself in front of Niall Horan. When he saw me, he stepped away from Harry and held out his arm: Once they were done, I was in my zone -- this was the moment I'd been waiting for. And then, after over an HOUR of waiting for the stage set-up to be complete, I was graced with the most beautiful sight God and Simon Cowell could have ever produced: Before this, though, they showed a little informational safety video, in which each boy told us to drink lots of water and reminded us not to throw things or push.
To be honest, I didn't process this video until I later watched it on YouTube, because I was too busy listening to their deep British accents pronounce each individual syllable. The concert opens with a pre-taped video of the guys doing some sort of green-screen "tour around the world" -- scuba-diving, chilling with penguins, pushing up the Leaning Tower of Pisa, etc.
There is a moment that Niall holds a puppy and the screams are so deafening and shrill, they can only be heard by canines. The show had little variation from night to night, with most of it coming in the form of new banter between songs. The outline was always the same: On Night 2, this exchange occurred: Who likes the Red Sox?
Who likes the Celtics? And who likes the Packers? The set list was mostly comprised of songs from their latest album, Midnight Memories. This album is such a banger that it was all good by me, though I probably would've preferred "Something Great" over the older "Moments. Someone would later go on to steal a balled up streamer I saved out of my purse.
The Fans It needs to be said that being a 1D fan is a complicated thing, and being united as one big group of 1D fans sharing an experience together can have its highs and lows.

The first night was harder for me, as no one was really up to trade 1D war stories while waiting the full hour between opener 5 Seconds of Summer and the main course of the night, One Direction. In fact, going alone is a lot like how Lauren Yapalater from BuzzFeed described it: Oh, I love The !
I saw them at Lollapalooza last Sunday. I saw the at Lollapalooza last Sunday. Girl, clearly having no idea what Lollapalooza is or why I'm speaking to her: She would later go on to shove in front of me during "Happily.
The last night, the girls around me were more open to discussion. On my left, the girl next to me and in front of me had just upgraded their seats to the floor that day and they were pretty jazzed.
We talked about college, and they were all shocked that: I felt very popular. These were my people. The only issue was that during the show, the girl on my left who had the seat closest to the stage was letting people into our row in order for them to be closer.
We all want to be close, but some of us are just luckier than others! Furthermore, the tickets were sold as a "Select your seat" deal on Ticketmaster. You literally had to click a dot and that was your seat.
