Cape Town - Loyal fans of One Direction came out in the hundreds to secure the best seat for the show in Cape Town on Wednesday night.

The young fans have been queuing outside the Cape Town Stadium since 10:00 as excitement grew over the British boy band’s gig.

Gia Van Der Vent and her friend Kinara Paco were two of the One Directioners in the queue that simply couldn’t wait for the show to start. “Harry is my favourite! He has hair like mine so I can relate to him,” Paco told Channel24 as she proudly showed off her T-shirt that she painted for the show.

One Direction performed in Johannesburg on Saturday and Sunday night before jetting off to the Mother City where they will end their South African tour.

Doors to the stadium open at 17:00 on Wednesday night and the show is set to kick off at 18:30 with Johnny Apple as the opening act.

One Direction will only take to the stage at 20:30 and the concert will end at 22:30.
