One Direction: Candy calms us
One Direction eat sweets before hitting the stage, as it "helps" with nerves.
The British boyband - consisting of Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan - have been busy promoting their new album Take Me Home.
The boys still get nervous before performances and have their own special way of calming themselves down.
"Sometimes I feel sick before I go onstage. I like our pre-show pep talk as it helps to calm me down," Harry revealed to the latest edition of British magazine Company.
"I eat Haribo before hitting the stage. That helps," Niall added.
A further difficult part of touring is homesickness.
However, the boys manage to keep each other going when things get tough.
"I guess the hardest part of being on tour is being away from home so much and missing our friends and family," Zayn confessed.
"But then again, I get to travel all over the world with four of my closest friends, so we keep ourselves positive and the fans help us a lot!"
