Louis Tomlinson hopes One Direction will reunite for a big event.
boy bands – consisting of Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Tomlinson – formed on The X Factor 2010 and went on to become one of the biggest pop groups in the world.
After five albums and four world tours, One Direction went on an indefinite hiatus in 2016, with the members continuing to pursue solo music careers.
Discussing whether it was possible to reunite the bands, Tomlinson told ITV’s Lorraine: “One day. There are a lot of moving parts but it would be a shame if we didn’t.”
When host Lorraine Kelly suggested that they could all come together for a big event or an important cause, the 30-year-old agreed, adding: “I hope so.”
Tomlinson’s second album, Faith In The Future, is due out in November and follows his recently released single Bigger Than Me.
Bandmate Styles has also enjoyed success as a solo artist, with his third studio album, Harry’s House, running for the Mercury Prize, to be announced Thursday night.
This week, the 28-year-old also attended the Venice Film Festival for the premiere of Olivia Wilde’s psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling, in which he stars alongside Florence Pugh and Chris Pine.
Reminiscing about his time in the band, Tomlinson said: “It’s definitely easier to see now than from the outside.
“It was a crazy, crazy time. (It was) great to be able to go through it with other people. It would be pretty scary to go through that experience yourself at that age. “

He admitted there was an “element of trial and error” with his 2020 debut solo album, Walls, as he found his footing outside of the group.
“Obviously coming out of a group the size of One Direction takes time to find myself, musically, but I really think I found that in this album and this single. ”, he added.
The singer said he made a sober decision with his record to make it more upbeat.
“On my first record, there was weight to it emotionally, which I thought was appropriate for the moment, but I just want to get out of that for now and get lost,” he said. mandarin.”
Faith In The Future premieres November 11th.
Lorraine airs at 9 a.m. weekdays on ITV and ITV Hub.
