Niall Horan & Louis Tomlinson: Pre-Show Soccer Studs

Posted Tuesday April 30, 2013 1:00 PM GMT

Keeping active during some downtime, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson opted for a spot of soccer in Paris, France yesterday (April 29).

The One Direction rock stars looked to be enjoying themselves as they killed time before their sold-out concert at the Bercy Arena, which kicked off the European leg of their new tour.

And it sounds like fans of 1D will have something extra to be thankful for this holiday season, as the “Live While We’re Young” lads will soon record a new album to be released by year’s end.

An inside source told press, “The band are going from strength to strength so it would be silly not to have an album out in time for the profitable Christmas market. All the lads are incredibly hard-working and career minded. Although they are knackered, they all love what they are doing.”
