Playing to a throng of screaming fans, the guys of One Direction kicked off their Take Me Home World Tour on Saturday (February 23) with a matinee performance in London.

Outside the venue, scores of admirers carried signs with statements such as "U are hot, cute and handsome" and “I heart you Harry.”

Held at the O2 Arena, the “Rock Me” hunks wasted no time getting the crowd going as they hit just the right notes in all their songs.

After the sold out show was over, a thrilled Louis Tomlinson tweeted "Loved it !!!!" and an excited Liam Payne chimed in with "Tour dayyyyy!"
