Welcome to the next portion of the Road Kill saga, which will cover the month of April. We left the boys, now a foursome, returning to London after finally completing the Asia/Africa leg of the tour. Before them was two full months of relatively free time. And after what they had just been through, they deserved a breather. But of course, because of all the recent publicity, they were still very much in the public eye. So this particular portion of the Tour Re-cap will focus on pretty boys, charity events and song writing.  It'll just get a little bit edgy towards the end... ;)

Recapping the Recap:

Part One The BeFour
Part Two Australia
Part Three Japan
Part Four Taking A Breather
Part Five East Asia I
Part Six East Asia II
Part Seven Africa and Dubai


So, here we go!

April 5-8 Niall at the Masters:  Oh No Niall

While most of the boys were fairly scarce during the first week of April.  Niall was at the Masters golf tournament in Augusta, GA.  He was invited to Caddy for his friend and fellow Irishman, Rory McIlroy, during a pre-tournament Par 3 event.

Damn, it was cute.


From this event was born a phrase that will haunt Niall for the rest of his life.  "Oh No Niall"  :bwahahahahaha:

It came about because of this famous on camera fall on live television.  He slipped on the pine needles, and splattered dramatically all over the ground.  The female announcer said the phrase, and it has been used in all kinds of situations ever since.

 <-- Oh No, Niall!

April 16 thru 22 - Charity

The middle of the month was dominated by three lovely, adorable and wonderful charity events held by one or another of the boys.  There were beautiful pictures from all of them.

April 16 - The Great Gatsby Ball for Trekstock

Trekstock is a charity that benefits young adult cancer survivors.  Harry and Liam had a history with this charity in 2013 and 14, and together raised over a million pounds for it.  Earlier in the year, Liam apparently became involved with them on his own. Likewise, around the same time pictures of his girlfriend Sophia came out indicating that she too was involved in this charity.

On April 16, the reason for this came to light.  They were host and hostess for a Great Gatsby Themed charity ball.  And Niall and Louis came too.  Whoo Hoo!  1920's themed Tuxedos!!!

 <-- Everybody loved Sophiam  It was "Goals".  They were "Mom and Dad"...

But, one person was clearly missing. Harry had not returned to London, but rather to Los Angeles.  So he was not in town for this event.  This was unnerving to be sure, having just gone from five to four, to see only three in these pictures. Following this "OT3" event, and for the rest of the month, the tabloids and general media were filled with stories of Harry's imminant departure.

 <-- Sophia was not an adequate replacement for Harry...  (More on Harry's doings below.)

April 19 - Louis's Football Match for Bluebell Woods

On April 19, Louis took part in a charity football match with his favorite team, The Doncaster Rovers.  This was to benefit a charity for sick children called Bluebell Woods.  (Liam was there as his guest, so there are pictures of him too. :)  Lilo's friendship would be an ongoing theme for the rest of the year.

The one thing is though, there were actual articles in tabloids a few days later covering Louis bouncing private parts.  Sheesh

April 22 - Liam in A Hard Hat is Not AT ALL My Least Favorite Thing Ever...

On the 22nd, Liam participated in the topping off ceremony for a youth center in his home town, Wolverhampton.  I'm not going to lie, this was my favorite one.

Hard Hat Liam is Maybe my second favorite behind Austraila Surfing Liam.  Just saying...

Before moving on, we kind of need to go and see what Zayn was up to.  Because he was still making headlines where ever he went....

April 17 - Zayn at the Asian Awards

Zayn was quite the sensation at this awards show.  The tabloids went gaga once again.  Because he's soooo pretty.

Interesting points to note.  Perrie wasn't his date.  His mother was.

He hung out with Naughty Boy while he was there, and called him his best friend in his acceptance speech.

And he thanked the boys in that speech saying:

I’d also like to take this moment to thank four of the best guys I ever met while being in the band and doing all the amazing things that I did.  Some of the things that we did will stay with me for the rest of my life, and I thank you for that. Here’s to the future!

This did nothing to disabuse the sneaking suspicion that Zayn was going solo.  (As if there was any doubt left)

This will lead to the next major theme of the month - Song Writing

April 13 - Write!

Starting on the 13th, with Liam and Louis' tweets about beginning the writing for their next album, Liam, Louis and Niall began tweeting, talking about, and being photographed in the studio working on new songs. The pictures were great!

 <-- Liam and Loius had a writing excustion at Liam's Surrey house.

However, this wholesome activity was sharply contrasted by something else that was ongoing... Louis and the post Elounor breakup party spree.

April (and Ongoing) Party-All-The-Time Louis

That party spree was visible throughout all of the month of Apri.  Through all the charity events and the songwriting Louis continued, night after night, being papped leaving clubs, usually with a "mystery girl".

Enjoy a sampler of Louis' April party spree.  There was much more to come.   Just wait until May.  LOL.

April 23 - Weed Scandal #2 - Blink and you Missed It...

On April 23, Louis' partying hit a bump in the road.  One of his party guests, (and the story was that he took home five girls that night.  Ahaha) put a picture on SnapChat featuring Louis, and what looked like a container of with a controlled substance.. ::shocker::

This seemed to blow over fairly quickly without creating too much of an issue.  But there was one more hilarious by-product.

April 24-25 - The Clean Living Boys...

The tabs decided to contrast Louis "bad boy" antics with pap photos coming out around the same time of Niall and Liam entering and leaving the studio.  They describe this pair as "Clean Living", which I found hysterical at the time, and still do.

 <-- Entering the Studio in the morning...
 <-- And Leaving it at night.  And OH LOOK NIALL'S HAT.  I told you we'd be seeing it around.  Ahahaha.

So, Where Was Harry?

So during all of this, Harry's absence seems quite glaring.  And the press continued to talk about Harry being the next to bolt for the whole damn month.  To be honest, the fandom was kind of scared about it.

Harry was in Los Angeles hanging out with Chelsea Handler, apparently and keeping a relatively low profile.

 <-- Chelsea posted this.  LOL

On the 16th He was papped leaving an L.A. Restaraunt:

And on the last day of the month, someone caught him driving a convertible around Beverly Hills.  Nice Car.

But don't worry, the separation would end soon, and May would be a different story.


We'll leave April with one of my favorite quotes of all time from Stephen Hawking, who was asked about Zayn's leaving in a video appearance on the 26th.  His answer showed not only his intelligence, but also his wisdom and kindness, because rather than laughing it off, he turned it into an opportunity to encourage young girls to study science.

“Finally, a question about something important,” he said. “My advice to any heartbroken young girl is to pay close attention to the study of theoretical physics. Because one day there may well be proof of multiple universes.”


So ended April.  That was kind of fun, and was a nice respite.

May will be another story, and will be covered in the next segment.  There will be award show and talk show appearances, more song writing, a major Twitter War, and We'll see Louis partying even harder - including with a girl named Briana.  And we all know where that went.
