One Direction revealed that they do have plans to celebrate their 10th anniversary after all. Fans of the boyband were hoping to see them reunited this year, with Liam Payne’s teasing and Niall Horan denying the rumours, they have been on a rollercoaster of not knowing what would happen.
Now we know that One Direction, which includes Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, all 26, Zayn Malik, 27, and Louis Tomlinson, 28, will finally reunite but not in the way that was expected as so much has changed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The boyband will celebrate its 10th anniversary by launching a celebration website, complete with a special video made especially for their fans.
One Direction revealed that they will also launch interactive playlists and activations across digital platforms on July 23rd, 2020.
The website is said to take the form of a timeline charting the history of the group, from their first-ever audition from forming the band on ‘The X Factor’, right up until the start of their hiatus.
One Direction will host an archive of clips from music videos, performances, artwork, behind-the-scenes and rarely-seen content, all in one place on their new website.
The boyband was a global sensation and they have sold over 200 million records worldwide, with over 21 billion streams across all streaming platforms.
It’s exciting to note that the band also won nearly 200 awards including 7 BRIT Awards, 4 MTV Music Awards, 6 Billboard Music Awards, 7 American Music Awards, and 28 Kids Choice Awards.
When Niall denied the rumours of a One Direction reunion saying the band would not be getting back together, hearts were broken at the thought that the band had split ways with no hope of reuniting, but to everyone’s surprise, they made a plan.
According to public relations company Simon Jones PR, One Direction is celebrating the band’s 10th anniversary in a big way as it is a major milestone.
One Direction fans were devastated back in 2016 when the band announced they were going their separate ways, but they can look forward to all the fun that begins on July 23rd, be sure to have those calendars marked.
