1D world tour - will they be as good without Zayn?

One DirectionAFP

One Direction have kicked off the first UK dates of their On The Road Again tour in Cardiff.

Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne are playing the Millennium Stadium this weekend.

The band became a four-piece after Zayn Malik left back in March.

The first UK show was a hit with Directioners who went to see them play, but without Zayn.

It won't be the same because Zayn works really hard and the group needs him.

In my opinion I think that doing endless touring they would obviously want to have a normal life. However, days after Zayn left the group he was already in the studio recording solo songs which would not be what a "normal 22 year old" does.

Zayn should come back.

Noah, Reading, England

I think One Direction would better without Zayn as they will get more solos and be able to interact with the Directioners better.

I think it going to be fine I'm going to see them tomorrow.

Keira, England

I hate Zayn. Zayn has got horrible singing voice but he's got good look.
