One Direction “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Concert Video — WATCH HERE!
One Direction had an outdoor concert for Thursday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Watch below!
For only the second time in the show’s history, the ABC late-night series shut down Hollywood Boulevard to stage a massive concert. Taylor Swift received the honor after she released 1989 last year. Now One Direction had its own celebration nearly a week after the release of Made In The A.M.
Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne commanded a crowd of thousands. The group performed “Perfect” and “History.” They also spoke inside the studio with Kimmel about the new record, as well as the band’s upcoming hiatus. Styles said he plans on “chilling out” during their break, while Horan said he’d like to travel because they’ve been to a lot of countries but only drove past “the biggest monuments in the world.”
There was also talk about One Direction being in the U.S. next week and how they’ll celebrate Thanksgiving. But the most surprising fact to emerge is that Kimmel’s dad is a maniacal One Direction fan, and of Horan in particular. Apparently, not only does Kimmel’s father celebrate Horan’s birthday, but he followed the singer into the bathroom before the band’s interview and showed the singer pictures of the birthday cakes.
Interestingly, this was One Direction’s second outdoor concert this week. As Gossip Cop previously reported, they also performed on Wednesday for an “Ellen DeGeneres Show” episode broadcast on Thursday. That concert came after an intimate show on Tuesday night during the “GMA 40” live stream. And, as Gossip Cop previously noted, earlier Thursday Horan and Payne teamed up with Ryan Seacrest to prank a Los Angeles music store.
The guys are currently in the midst of a hardcore promo tour, and stopping by “Jimmy Kimmel” has become something of a tradition. The British singers appeared on the show in November of last year after the release of Four, during which they took the “cutest selfie ever.”
