Fans now happy, but 11th hour 1D gig cancellation baffling
Boyband One Direction appeal to a very impressionable pre-teen and early teenage female audience and the scenes of distress among many of the fans when Tuesday night's concert was called off at the last minute were genuine. Just why it took so long on the night to make the announcement that the band would not be appearing because of one member's illness remains a puzzle.
Thankfully, the performance has been rearranged for tomorrow night, which will please the young fans, if not their parents who will have to ferry them to and from the arena again. They may not all be singing from the same songbook as their children.
