When One Direction couldn’t make it out to the hoardes of fans waiting for them outside Dublin’s O2 Arena last night, Liam Payne‘s parents stepped in to meet the girls and have their pictures taken with them.
Geoff and Karen Payne. Geoff and Karen. Karen and Geoff. Good couple names aren’t they?
„I’m having a dinner party with Geoff and Karen.” Yeah. That totally works.
Back in September before What Makes You Beautiful was released, Geoff (of Geoff and Karen) spoke about how proud he was of Liam.
„Me and Liam’s mum are extremely proud of all of the boys, who we regard as extended family,” he told The Express.
Now they’re flying with the boys all over the world (well, to Ireland for now) to see them sell out arenas!
Jeez, we better buy our parents some chocolate or something, we suddenly feel like under-achievers.
One Direction played a sold out ARENA in Dublin last night, and it all seemed to get a bit emotional for them.
As far as we know, most of the boys’ parents flew over to see them, and Niall in particular was getting very excited about playing such a big venue in his home country.
„Ireland! Absolutely incredible is an understatement,” he tweeted after the show.
„Thank you for a lovely welcome home! Had goosebumps all night and a tear in my eye!
„#Irishandproud small nation but we can sure make a hell of a lot of noise! Love you all! Dream come true.”
The boys are playing in Belfast tonight.
One Direction played one of the the Irish dates of their Up All Night tour in Dublin yesterday, and before the show kicked off Niall Horanheaded out to Grafton Street for a bit of casual shopping, with a bodyguard and loads of fans around him.
Well, it would be rude to keep a face that beautiful hidden away indoors, wouldn’t it?
With his red zippy, red trainers, and bags from Office, River Island and Topman, Niall looked like a RIGHT fashionista.
When he got back to his hotel he found a load of 1D fans waiting about for him, so – ever the gent – he stopped for a few pictures and was looking gorgeous.
Check out his security guard trying to nab himself Niall’s new shoes! Heh.
Oh Niall, YOU FITTIE. Come hang out with us soon. We’ve got snacks.
