One Direction has touched down in Australia, and has been sneaky in the process. Meanwhile, Flight Of The Conchords has announced a July tour to these shores.
One Direction, who recently landed on these shores, is no doubt hoping they can stamp a presence in Australia.
Yet their recent arrival was less showmanship, and more sneakiness. Hundreds of fans had camped out at Sydney Airport hoping to capture a glimpse, a signature or even a few words from the British boy-band, which has experienced a meteoric rise of late.
The fans enjoyed nothing of the sort, with the five members — Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson — disappearing into a side exit and jumping into waiting transport. Many fans were less than impressed, some even shedding a tear or two.
The band will begin their sold out Australia tour in Sydney this Friday, followed by performances in Melbourne and Brisbane. They will also be appearing at the Logies, along with the likes of Seal.
Meanwhile, Flight Of The Conchords will be stirring up a pot of musical comedy throughout the month of July.
The band, made up of the two Kiwis Jemaine Clement (pictured) and Bret McKenzie, will perform in Sydney, Brisbane, Newcastle, Wollongong, Melbourne and Perth.
“We are finally returning to Australia. Mostly to apologise,” Clement said in a statement.
