UNCASVILLE, Connecticut, U.S.A. – I had never seen so many people in one arena as I did at One Direction’s incredible sold out concert Friday at Mohegan Sun.
The screams of the devoted ‘Directioners’ were insane when the boys finally came on the stage.
The band performed a lot of their old songs from their first album, Up All Night, and a couple of new tunes from their Take Me Home album released in November. They sang “Up All Night,” “Moments,” “Live While We’re Young,” “Little Things” and “I Want.”
Of course, the boys from One Direction – Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne – also delivered their most famous song, “What Makes You Beautiful.”
I really enjoyed “Little Things,” co-written by Ed Sheeran. When they sang this piece, the boys all sat on the edge of the stage and Horan accompanied the group on his guitar. It was wonderful because it was such a tranquil song compared to their others.
Since their previous album, the guys have grown and matured. They still write a lot of songs about love and the typical teenage situations. During the concert, fans tweeted questions and dares for the boys to do. One dare asked which one of the boys from One Direction could kick their leg the farthest!

Another fan wanted to know what the strangest dance move the boys could do that no fan has seen before. It was quite entertaining to see them doing something other than singing on stage.
It was also really interesting how technology is used now on music venues or situations. Every single one of the boys from One Direction has such great singing abilities. It was so interesting to hear them live on stage because I could actually distinguish each and every one of their voices, in real life.
Malik’s voice stood out to me the most. He took such high notes and held them out for so long. He really completes the band in such a positive way.
This amazing concert was about two hours long, but I wish it was for many more!
I am so happy to see musicians doing what they love and I am so proud of One Direction for making it this far in the music world. They made it so far that they are selling out arenas in less than 30 minutes.
The music industry is not easy to get into, but they made it, and I wish them all the best.
