When did One Direction last tour?
Before going their separate ways, One Direction last performed together on their 2015 ‘On The Road Again’ tour. The tour took place after their fourth studio album, ‘Four’, was released. It covered extensive ground across Europe, North America, Asia, and Australia, featuring 80 concerts held in diverse cities around the globe.
Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne all featured on the tour, hitting stages across the world without Zayn Malik for the first time. It was known for its high-energy performances, elaborate stage setups, and mesmerising vocal harmonies.
Fans eagerly anticipated the tour, which showcased the band's incredible chemistry and charismatic stage presence. The ‘On The Road Again’ tour was a memorable experience for Directioners, leaving them with lasting memories of One Direction's incredible live performances.
Will there be a One Direction reunion in 2024?
The question on everybody’s minds is whether One Direction are coming back in 2024.
1D fans worldwide have been buzzing with excitement as rumours of a potential reunion continue to circulate. After going on an indefinite hiatus in 2016, the beloved boy band may finally be considering regrouping.
Eagle-eyed fans have been buzzing with excitement as they noticed some intriguing changes on social media. Harry, Liam, Niall, and Louis have switched their profile pictures to black and white. Meanwhile, global megastar Taylor Swift has also made a similar update.

Last year, interviews and social media activity among the band members also fuelled speculation about a One Direction reunion tour. Harry Styles wore a One Direction t-shirt in a now-deleted Instagram post, while Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson have expressed their desire to reunite the band.
Fans eagerly anticipate the potential for a reunion concert and new music from the band. A One Direction reunion would undoubtedly be a nostalgic trip for their dedicated fanbase, who have been patiently waiting for this moment.
Although a 1D reunion is yet to be confirmed. During a recent interview with Ringwalk Media, when questioned about the potential reunion, Liam Payne hinted at intriguing developments, stating "I'm not sure, but we've just started a new group chat, so that's an interesting development."

Building on the excitement, sightings of Liam, Louis, and Niall together at a Los Angeles studio have intensified the curiosity of fans.
Reports indicate that Louis and Niall are set to collaborate with Liam, who is actively engaged in the creation of his second solo album. This thrilling collaboration among the three former bandmates has further fueled speculation and heightened anticipation among One Direction fans.
If a reunion were to happen, it would be a joyous occasion for millions of fans worldwide and a monumental event in the music industry. Only time will tell if the stars will align for a One Direction reunion, but the excitement and anticipation among fans is palpable.
When and where could a One Direction tour in 2024 be?
Should the band reunite for a tour, it would most likely be in the summer or back end of 2024, and could even stretch into 2025.
1D were one of the biggest groups in the world at the height of their popularity, and their fans have not diminished. The pop group could hit all of the biggest cities across the UK on their tour, such as Birmingham, Manchester, London, Glasgow and Liverpool.
With over 38 million monthly listeners on Spotify, One Direction would most likely hit the stage at the biggest stadiums and arenas across the country, on what could be the biggest tour of the year.
Will Zayn Malik join the reunion?
When discussing a possible 1D reunion on Instagram Live, Liam Payne jokingly offered Alesso a place in the band, implying that Zayn won't be part of the reunion. He said: "You can come in and fill in for Zayn and join the band."
Zayn parted ways with the boys in 2015 due to creative differences. A year later, he went on to pursue a solo music career. He's enjoyed commercial success, scoring a No.1 debut album and collaborating with Taylor Swift on the track 'I Don't Wanna Live Forever’ on the ‘Fifty Shades Darker' soundtrack.
Zayn's untimely exit appeared to create bad blood between himself and his former bandmates. However, eagle-eyed fans have spotted that Liam, Harry, Niall and Louis now follow Zayn on Twitter. Zayn has yet to follow them back, which could indicate they've sorted out their differences.
Will One Direction release new music?
So far, no new music news has been confirmed by any of the boys themselves. However, when speaking to NME about his hopes for the future, Niall Horan confirmed that he is still in contact with his former bandmates about producing new music.
Even though this may only be for solo material, it is a heavy indication that the boys are still interested in producing new music should they reunite in 2024.
After Liam, Niall and Louis were spotted at a recording studio in LA, it is more than likely that a new single from the former bandmates is on the horizon.
