Fans were collected by their parents in the rain when it was evident that the concert would really not push through. Reports coming from The Belfast Telegraph indicated that 30,000 Northern Ireland fans had spent almost £1.6m on tickets just to see Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne.

One Direction was set to do three shows at Belfast. All shows had sold out tickets. Fans were disgruntled, disappointed and some also were concerned with Liam’s condition. Some even speculated that the cancelation would lead to Liam quitting the group just like Zayn a few months back.

Harry, Niall and Louis all took to Twitter to send out their apologies to their fans. Styles tweeted at around 10pm, an hour after the concert was scheduled to begin. ‘Deepest apologies to everyone at the show tonight in Belfast. Very disappointed, but unfortunately these things happen. We’re very sorry. H’

Louis and Niall were next to tweet while Liam remained silent the whole time. Fans expressed their concern, and they were told to hold on to their tickets. ‘Please hold on to your tickets. A further statement will be made in the morning. The band apologises to the fans and wish Liam better.’

This canceled show is part of the group’s On The Road Again tour.
