British-Irish pop boy band, agrees to pursue solo projects after 12 months

British-Irish pop boy band, One Direction have agreed to an extended break of at least 12 months, starting in March 2016, to pursue solo projects.

The boys have decided not to take the opportunity to tour after the Christmas release of their fifth album, and will instead temporarily disband, leaving each of them free to pursue other avenues.

This means their last full concert will be at Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield on Halloween, October 31st; ending five years since getting together on The X Factor in 2010.

The group will take a break over the festive season, before coming back together to fulfil the rest of their promotional commitments for record label Syco in February.
