While the guys may be having some downtime from touring, that doesn't mean they aren't still busy working on writing their fifth album. They'll be returning to touring with a bang on June 5th, kicking off the European leg of tour at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium. That's where the record breaking comes in.
1D will be attempting a new Guinness World Record as part of BBC Music Day, as the biggest distance between people singing a duet. How do they accomplish that? By live streaming their concert to link up with another act in Patagonia, South America - 7,000 miles away. Cool.
In a statement, they explained, "On BBC Music Day our tour will see us playing in Cardiff's Millennium Stadium. We hope wherever you are you have as much fun as we will! Music brought us together, and every day we love what we do. Get involved, play, sing and have a good time."
