With Japan Just announced it looks likely that they will add more dates in Asia. If they add Sounth America and African dates as well they might end up doing around 150+ dates.

I know they have to rake it all in while the hype is still there, but this is far too much! The last few dates they're going to be like the walking dead!

They should really take a break sometime. It seems they don't even get anytime to themselves anymore.

I guess their management, like most others, doesn't really care about that though as long as they make money.

I agree - this is just way too much... especially since this is only their 2nd tour and the 1st was pretty small. I remember Westlife saying it was very tiring when they had 70 dates during the 1st tour - 130 is just insane! And on top of that, I bet they will still have the 3d album by the end of the year.

Simon is really running them like dogs... he took the expression "milk it for what its worth" way too seriously.

I have slated people in the past for claiming One Direction work hard - but maybe I was a bit wrong. That is INSANE, and I can't see how it is good for anybody's health no matter how young or well they are. I'm actually concerned for them and I'm far from a fan.

I think everyone is forgetting these guys are well looked after. 1st class hotels and travel-no doubt they will be using the beds on there private jet, well Zane or Zak, whatever his name is..And 3 hour gigs a night between day's off is not that bad for a young lad. I would love to see them work a 12 hour shift in the local chicken factory and see what they prefer.

All deaf teenagers must have a chance to "listen" to them.

I have always said the same thing but you can't deny that's a crazy amount of tour dates. However well looked after they are, the pressure on them will be immense. I really don't see that anyone needs to perform on that many dates. The obvious cashing in here on the part of Scyo is disturbing. I know boybands like One Direction need to strike while they iron is hot but this is something else.

I can see the other posters point, though. It's 130 dates out of a 365 day year with most of it down time and a couple hours a night performing which will probably be mostly lip synched. It's hardly a 40+ hour work week every week(excluding maybe two weeks vacation) for a year.

I'm sure it will be a ton of work, but I think the jet lag might do them in a bit more than the performing.

Like I said, I'm normally the first to be aghast when anyone suggest pampered little sods like 1D work hard compared to the majority of human beings, but the pressure on them during this tour will be crazy no matter how well looked after they are. I wouldn't want to be in their shoes even for all that money.

it's not even the pressure. think of the rehearsal time, the meet and greets, sound check and not to mention promotion for upcoming singles which will no doubt be released all around the world to coincide with the dates so there will be interviews performances radio etc.

i read an interview where they said they work 16 hour days most days and rarely get a day off. don't underestimate them- I know a lot of people dislike their
music and fans but you cannot deny that they are hardworking - id like to see you do a 130 date tour without going home for most of it.

I know where you are coming from but you have forgotten that most days they will be doing mag shoots and radio interviews on top

But the show itself won't be as tiring as a West end musical where the stars have to do the triple every night,(somedays a matinee too) sing, dance and act!

ETA and these boys won't be miming as witnessed by their first tour . I didn't gomyselfbut know plenty who did and there was no miming!
