There were cheers - and the promise of tears - from One Direction fans as they geared up to see their idols. (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNNAMED ONE DIRECTION FANS SAYING: "Ah I'm gonna cry. I'm gonna cry, like ah..." ANOTHER FAN SAYING: "I don't know...because we're gonna be quite close so, I've never been that close to them so I don't know how I'll react. I'll probably cry." Hundreds queued outside London's Roundhouse for the boy band's headline set at the Apple Music Festival. It's One Direction's first performance in the capital since they announced they'd be taking a break next year. But news of that hiatus didn't put a dampener on spirits. SOUNDBITE (English) UNNAMED ONE DIRECTION FANS SAYING: "It's been five years. I don't know any other band who've been going like for 5 years. Tours, albums...they haven't stopped for like a minute so I think they deserve it." ANOTHER FAN SAYING: "And they've done a great job I think they deserve a break and they need a break and we just appreciate what they've done for us." The intimate gig may be one of the group's last for a while, but One Direction aren't putting the brakes on just yet. Before taking to the stage, the foursome revealed their fifth album is weeks away from hitting stores. Called "Made In The A.M.", the record will be released globally on November 13.
