All great endings come with fireworks and that’s exactly how One Direction finished off the South African leg of their On The Road Again world tour.

The British-Irish boy band rocked Johannesburg’s FNB Stadium and Cape Town stadium this week.

The now four-piece band, including Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Harry Styles, filled in the parts of former band mate Zayn Malik without a glitch.

Before the Cape Town show yesterday, Horan tweeted: “Cape Town tonight! What a beautiful city from what I can see from the hotel! Can’t wait for the show! Buzzin”.

“Big love to all our fans ! Seriously, thank you, you guys have been unbelievable,” Tomlinson wrote on the social media site.

The best-selling boy band will take their tour to the United Kingdom and Ireland later this year.
