One Direction Belfast concert canceled because Liam Payne is sick

Unwell Liam Payne Causes One Direction To Cancel Concert


One Direction was forced to cancel their concert in Belfast on Tuesday night (Oct. 20) just before it was to begin. The pre-show announcement informed fans that Liam Payne is ill, so the group wouldn't be performing.


An onscreen message noted that while Payne's illness isn't serious, the show wouldn't be happening. "The band apologize to the fans and wish Liam better," the statement said, in part.
