Banners, face paints and fireworks greeted the world’s biggest band last night – and not even Harry Styles’ croaky voice could dampen our spirits.
Harry’s husky range may even have added to the fever-pitch atmosphere as the crowd were forced to spare his blushes by singing his solo parts. And what he lacked in vocals he made up for in crowd interaction. He even returned my phone when it ‘accidently’ ended up on stage!
Support act 5 Seconds of Summer kicked off the concert and a wall of voices reflected their hits back to them.
Thirty minutes later the crowd erupted as One Direction took the limelight but the loudest cheer of the event was reserved for hit song Story of My Life.
Murrayfield was packed to the rafters, with more teenage boys than I was expecting.
Everyone knew the words of every single song and it seemed no-one wanted the concert to end. Screams echoed all around me.
It was unforgettable for most Capital Directioners . . . who will sympathise with Harry’s lost voice today.
