Ever wondered how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? How bought how long it takes to set up a 1D show?

Ever wonder how those MASSIVE stages at the One Direction shows were built? Or exactly what goes in to making the special shows possible? Well, our friends over at Live Nation were able to put together a short video to show us how truly extravagant these shows are.

Big Deal

To give you an idea, it takes over THREE DAYS for the whole stage to be built up. Also, there was someone who literally hand drew everything that is flashed on the big screens that make up the stage, bet you didn’t imagine that, right?


The tour and stage are ‘all about the boys’ so believe it or not, they had a large say in the design of their traveling home. Although it is similar to the ‘Where We Are’ stage, there are key differences in the coloring, graphics, and videography used for the OTRA. This is easily one of the coolest videos we’ve seen in awhile.
