Niall Horan is probably the most vocal member of One Direction to say that he misses the band, the company of Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson since the start of the hiatus. He has made it very clear that he is ready and waiting for a reunion even though he's moving full steam ahead with his solo debut album, Flicker, set to drop on October 20th. In a new interview, the Irish heartthrob is at it again vying for a 1D reunion, but this time, Louis is agreeing with him.
The "Too Much To Ask" singer chatted with The Sunday Times Culture and said, "If it comes tomorrow, I have my bag packed. If I have to wait till I’m 60, so be it. I’m serious. We’ll be like the Eagles and never stop." First of all, we're hoping it doesn't take another 40 years for the boys to realize that they need to bring the band back together. But, there's another piece of the puzzle when it comes to this quote of Niall's.
A One Direction fan page, @1DBreakUpdates, tweeted this exact quote that Niall said. In a crazy turn of events, Louis actually liked the quote that the fan page shared which means he agrees. In the very least, he must have felt a bit of nostalgia when he read that and was compelled to show his love.
Louis has been a little less inclined to talk about how ready he is to get back into the swing of things with the boys, but this one like proves that he may just have a mental bag packed and ready to go too. And if he has to wait until he's super old, he's on board for that. Sooo, we've got two out of the four guys ready at the drop of a hat. Now all Directioners need is a little reassurance that Harry and Liam are all in for this game plan. Liam might just be the next one to admit it. According to a recent interview, Liam believes the band is going to reunite after the year 2020. He's willing to bet his house on it, that's how sure he sounded. That sounds like a very convincing argument if you ask us. While that timestamp might seem far off, it really isn't. 2017 is almost over which gives the boys two more years on their own.
Niall also revealed what it was actually like being in the band, and to be honest, we had never thought about it the way he explained. He said, "It’s like the best school trip you’ve ever been on - we were just floating around, having fun. We spent a lot of time on flights. Playing to thousands of people felt normal. That was our day, just as getting up and going to work is for most people. It was impossible to understand the madness that other people saw. I’d watch videos of us on YouTube and read articles about us, because, when you’re in that bubble, you haven’t a clue."
Now, being on stage alone, he uses his guitar as a replacement for the boys. He said, "With 1D, the screaming didn’t stop. We’d all run around and there was always some explosion going off or prop coming on. Now, I just stand there thanking God for my guitar. When I put that down, I haven’t a clue what to do with my hands." Soon enough that guitar will be gone Niall, soon enough.
