Setting The Stage

I have decided that I want to do a new series about the trials and tribulations of One Direction's On The Road Again Tour. Because I love doing big Multi-part Series. This one is a giant Pic Spam/Recap of OTRA. I'm calling this new Series Road Kill: A Love Story, for obvious reasons, because this tour left a lot of wreckage in it's wake.

Please note, no stuffed bears will be considered for this recap.

This first entry covers the important events that happened in the months prior to the tour's beginning in Sydney Australia on February 7, and which set the stage for most of the primary shocks to come.

Important Pre-Tour Events:

Oct. 5, 2014 - Miami - Concluding concert of the WWA Tour. Zayn does not fully participate in the traditional group hug at the conclusion of the WWA Tour. Those arms are looking rather stiff and awkward, and not engaged in hugging anyone back... It was food for thought.

Nov. 17, 2014 - Zayn Today Show No-Show (The Shape of things to come) This was the biggest clue of all as to what Zayn's relationship with 1D had become. It was quite shocking at the time,, because this concert in Orlando was the ALBUM LAUNCH, and to miss such a major event is a big deal. But at the same time, wasn't surprising at all. The last time Zayn had appeared particularly enthusiastic about 1D events was 2013.

Dec. 25, 2014 – Zayn spends the Holiday with record producer Shahid Kahn, known as Naughty Boy. Zayn had actually started working with Naughty Boy at least six months before. But it is during the Holiday break in particular that this relationship moved to the forefront. They started posting a barrage of selfies together.

Jan 12, 2015 – Zayn also spends his birthday with Naughty Boy. And please note that his finace, Perrie Edwards was not visible during either the Christmas or Birthday events held for Zayn by Naughty Boy. People begin to refer to the duo as "Zaughty".

Jan 21, 2015 – Elounor & Sophiam fly to Los Angeles on a writing trip. (Larries freak out about an escalator). Seriously, they were making theories about the two of them going the Up The Down escalator. It was mind numbing.

Jan 28, 2015 – Eleanor is back in the UK (But Sophia stays in L.A.)

Feb 1 - Harry’s 21st birthday party in L.A. – Liam and Louis attend the party. There are no pictures of Louis at the party, which of course is fodder for Larry conspiracy theories. A few photos of Liam did leak. It is a star studded affair.

Feb 5, 2015 – “Lairport” (AKA Larries have an unnecessary freak out about two bandmates on a plane.) Really, there's nothing more to say about it. They were very excited by this picture of Harry and Louis walking through the baggage claim area in Sydney.


This concludes Part 1. The Next part will cover the events of Australia, including "Nelly", and a very "unfortunate" quote from Louis.
