One Direction Announces Reunion Tour, First Show at Anoka-Ramsey Community College


 One Direction Announces Reunion Tour, First Show at Anoka-Ramsey Community College 

 One Direction has recently announced their reunion, after more than 700 days on hiatus. 

By Darcy Flowers a.k.a. Paige Davis 

On 13 January 2016, boyband One Direction announced their split as a band to focus on solo music. On 5 February 2012, One Direction announced their first reunion tour. 

In their first interview with E! News as a reconnected band, Liam Payne said “We had gotten so many tweets about reuniting and ending the hiatus, and after 2 years, we said enough is enough and ended the breakup.” 

Their first tweet as a reconnected band read “Comeback tour! Looking for places to play. Tweet us with suggestions!” and consisted of a photo of them smiling. After receiving an overwhelming amount of tweet saying “Anoka-Ramsey Community College!!” the band reserved the main stage at Anoka-Ramsey. 

I spoke with Jessica Patterson, student at Anoka-Ramsey and avid follower – called a “stan” – of One Direction, about how she feels about this tour. “OMG its sooo lit. I literally can’t even believe it I’m shook. Harry is skinny One Directions lives!!!” I used a “stan-to-English” translator and Patterson actually said “I’m so excited. I can’t believe it, I’m overwhelmed. Harry is the best, I love One Direction!” 

Anoka-Ramsey president Kent Hanson is also a fan of 1D. Hanson was the first to send out a tweet asking them to play at Anoka-Ramsey. “Teenage girls aren’t the only fans of One Direction.” Hanson has seen One Direction live 3 times and was heartbroken at their breakup. 

Tickets to the upcoming concert can be bought through Ticketmaster, Stubhub, or directly through the Anoka-Ramsey Community College website.
