Seacrest interviews Horan during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about his bands Where We Are World Tour. 

It’s going to be a lot different [than our previous tours]. First of all, we’re playing in stadiums, which is new to us all. The stage is going to be huge and it’s going to be a 3-D effect for us and we have three albums worth of songs to play, we just cant wait to play. Playing the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles is mind blowing.

Fourth album to feature McBusted

0 Comments

Niall confirms that the group will collaborate on their fourth album with fellow boy-band, Mcbusted. McBusted is the result of a merge of the separate bands Mcfly and Busted. Reports say the recording sessions secretly began prior to One Direction’s Where We Are Tour. Fans can expect the new album to release in Autumn.

We worked with Mcfly on the last album but now it’s all about McBusted…James Bourne is a really talent songwriter so it’s exciting to have him as part of the mix.

Huge thank you to anyone who is listening to this right now and who has bought our new album Midnight Memories, because what it’s done in the charts this week is just ridiculous. We are trying to get our head around it now. Thank you so much to everyone, because we spent a lot of time working on it and we’re glad that everyone likes it. So, thank you.
