5 Seconds of Summer Open Up About Starting Out on One Direction Tours

5 Seconds of Summer Open Up About Starting Out on One Direction Tours

Ashton Irwin cheeses it up during a group shot at the 5 Seconds of Summer Soundcheck Party on SiriusXM Hits 1 at The Forum on Wednesday (September 7) in Inglewood, Calif.

Joined by bandmates Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, and Calum Hood, the band performed a few songs for a small group of select fans.

β€œIt was really scary for us,” Michael shared with the Sacramento Bee recently. “When we started that tour in 2013, no one knew who we were. We kind of had to build that by getting better and better and better live.”

He added, “It was kind of all we cared about for a long time was just how we could become a better live band, play better and have the audience interact more and stuff like that. But coming back to like this year now, we see how many shows we played on that One-D tour and how much it helped us to like craft our performance into what we wanted it to be.”
