1D decide ‘to take extended hiatus of at least a year to focus on solo projects’ after crunch talks
One Direction are planning to take an extended hiatus next year.
The boyband – comprised of Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson – have reportedly decided to take time away from the band to focus on solo projects and will not tour their fifth album.
A source told The Sun newspaper: ‘The guys have been together for five years, which is an incredible run for any boyband.
‘They fully deserve to have at least a year to work on their own projects. There is absolutely no bad blood between them and they are all 100 per cent behind the decision.’
According to the paper, the group – who were formed on the UK X Factor in 2010 and have gone on to conquer the world – made the decision during crunch talks in London last weekend and their final show will be at Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield on October 31.
The Sun reports that they have some work commitments in February and will take their break in March.
