As you might have heard, Australian band 5 Seconds of Summer recently announced that they will be joining One Direction on the North American leg of the 2014 Where We Are Tour. This will be the second tour in which fans will witness both bands on the same stage.
Some aren’t fond of the decision for a couple reasons. Some say One Direction should try a new support act, while others say that 5SOS needs to get out of One Direction’s shadow. What ever the reason against the decision, however, we feel we must respectfully disagree.
These two bands in a tour together is what dreams are made of. Here’s 5 reasons why this announcement is pretty much the best thing to ever happen to us.
Reason #1: Getting two for the price of one.
This combination is great for fans on a basic level for two reasons. The first is financially – we all know these tickets are expensive, but we’re getting so much more for our money when we’re seeing TWO of our favorite bands perform. The other is time-wise – we won’t feel like we’re wasting our time sitting through an opening band we don’t care about when we love the opening band.
What we’re getting to here is that every night, we’ll see not only this:
But this too.
Reason #2: The Return of Michael and Harry.
No one can deny the uncanny chemistry between Harry Styles and Michael Clifford. These two have the most cuddly, adorable, borderline gay friendship in the modern music industry, and who doesn’t want to see that again? Between Harry vining Michael on stage and the Twitter courtship of Camila Cabello, (don’t pretend you weren’t entertained) these two are on a whole new level of close.
Reason #3: Niall, the 5th second of summer.
One of the best parts of this partnership is the love affair between Niall and 5 Seconds of Summer. Niall’s pretty obsessed, (like let’s be real Niall was the one spearheading the decision to have 5sos on the tour again) and nobody else complains about it because it’s just so darn cute.
For example, Niall loves these boys so much that they’re selfie-worthy.
And I mean, they love him right back. Look at that love. LOOK AT IT.
Reason #4: Group photos.
Self-explanatory reason. 9/9 makes for a good picture.
Reason #5: On-stage shenanigans.
Arguably the best part of One Direction and 5SOS on tour together is the crazy pranks they pull during shows. These lads are all close friends, and therefore aren’t phased by huge crowds in order to have a little…fun.
All in all, we think that WWA is going to be amazing with these two bands running the show. Now you tell us- are you excited? Do you like that 5sos is supporting 1D again? Leave it in a comment below!
Until next time,
