Cape Town - Channel24 went on a mini field trip this morning to see the awaiting fans preparing for the greatest day of their lives... and ours... One Direction's show in Cape Town!

Yes, South African fans have waited a year so why not wait another seven hours until the concert?  

Their loyal fans came out in the hundreds to secure the best seat tonight...

We spoke to a few Directioners in the queue..

Gia Van Der Vent and Kinara Paco have been waiting in the line since 10:00 and when asked who their favourite One Direction member is, Kinara said she liked Harry "because he has hair like mine and I can relate to him".

Martin, 23, was one of the few guys waiting in line and happily confirmed he is a proud One Direction fan, waiting in line since 09:30 this morning!

And his favourite member was Zayn "because he made space for me". And we have to agree, Martin has a certain boy band charm that we would crumble for... #it'shishair

And we of course had to speak to a One Directioner mom, who's been waiting in the sun since 11:00 this morning. She told us she brought her daughter to the concert, and her favourite member is Niall "because he's the only one without tattoos".
