One Direction are set to crank up their security level by a few notches for the upcoming US leg of their tour this summer.
In case you hadn’t noticed (have you been under a rock?) the world has gone One Direction crazy over the last few years, especially those mad Americans. Therefore the band’s management have stepped up security amid fears that fans will do whatever it takes to get close to Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan.
Apparently, they’re going Obama style – no, that’s not a spin off to Gangnam Style – as the guys will have a team of ex-presidential secret service agents and former marines by their sides around the clock.
Security will be at the airports, on the tour buses, at hotels and concert venues, so their bat-crap crazy fans might not want to try something they could soon regret – like a taser to the chest!
A source told the Daily Star: “They will be protected by some of the best security personnel America has to offer.
“There is significant concern that the group will be greeted by mobs of thousands of girls, which is too much for the normal team to handle.
“To make matters worse, it is the US holidays too.”
The hunger for Liam Payne will have grown over the weekend as well, as it has been confirmed he’s split (again) from girlfriend Danielle Peazer.
Meanwhile, Harry Styles nearly lost an arm by a crazed baying crowd in Paris a few days back, he even lost his hat!
The lads will also be promoting their upcoming movie release whilst in the states, along with performing a free gig on NBC Today.
