They went to see the singer’s concert in Mexico City.
For all those who said that One Direction would be something temporary, they only needed to see the huge and kilometric rows that were made around the Pepsi Center, where Louis arrived, to realize that that euphoria that began with the boy band more than 10 years ago today continues with each of its members; with Tomlinson was no exception.

The singer knew that most of that audience that gathered on Tuesday is due to his beginnings with One Direction and in gratitude he sang a classic from the boy band, the song “Drag me down”, which even unleashed the occasional tear of part of his Louies, as his fans call themselves.
“Hello, Mexico City, I love you very much, I have to thank you for all your support, this show would not exist without you, I love you very much,” said Louis dressed completely in black and before interpreting “Don’t let it break your heart ”.
Although sometimes the headlines and the focus are usually more focused on his ex-partners Harry Styles or Zayn Malik, with his show, Louis showed that his audience is faithful and committed, since there was not a single song that the public did not know, from those with a more powerful and pop rock sound, such as “Two of us” or “Always you”, to the calmer ballads such as “Too young”.
“Mexico City! I have had incredible memories. The crowd has always been amazing, so once again, thank you!”
The singer not only remembered his old band through some songs, he also took the time to take the cover of “7”, original by Catfish and the Bottlemen, to the stage.
Although the stage did not have a great scenographic display, Tomlinson did not need it, since with only a powerful set of lights, his band and his unmistakable voice were enough to please his fans with other songs such as “Changes”, “Fearless” and “Only the brave”.
“Mexico City! Let me just say that I have had amazing memories with my band One Direction and now, alone! The crowd has always been amazing, so once again, thank you!” she said before performing “Habit”.
“Defenceless” and “Walls” were also part of the first show he presented in Mexico City; the concert ended with One Direction’s “Through the dark” and “Kill my mind”.
