One Direction, Comerica Theatre, 6/10/12 (VIDEO)

Page 3 of 3

Some cheesy videos of the guys heading to the beach, mock-attending college, and hanging out together in a cabin (and in bed together) ran throughout the show. The videos really had nothing to do with the music, just with showing off how tight the fivesome is -- they really love to get physical with each other. The girls in the crowd probably didn't appreciate the clips featuring laughing girls, but other females on display wasn't the only way 1D showed they're not just puppets for their fans. They also threw in a cover of Kings of Leon's "Use Somebody" (which mentions "lovers undercover"), as well as made a dick joke and sang about being naked on a floor in a cover of Natalie Imrbuglia's "Torn." Though most of the show was G-rated, it was moments like this that gave people a glimpse into the mature route the band might take in the future.

For now, though, it was evident many of the fans seemed to believe Liam, Niall, Zayn, Harry and Louis might actually become theirs some day. And when you're under the influence (in this case, of lust), that's a pretty positive state to be in.

Personal Bias: I've been a sucker for boy bands since I myself was a tween girl.
The Crowd: 99 percent young girls under the age of 15.
Seen in the crowd: A girl in front of me kept flipping her hair when 1D sang, "The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed" during "What Makes You Beautiful."
Random Notebook Dump: I was amazed at the amount of people without tickets who hung out at the theater before and after the show -- there had to have been hundreds of parents and their girls who hoped to get a glimpse of the band.
