One Direction performed at their final ever On The Road Again concert date in Sheffield, and it was so emotionally stirring that reading this article might actually cause irreparable damage to your heartstrings.
Taking to the stage for the last time pre-hiatus the boys were on top form, slaying the vocal game, energetically dancing around to \'Act My Age\', and going all in on the group hug situation - also breaking up into pairs of two for extra bonus hugs.
So many wonderful things happened throughout their performance that we\'ve decided to collect the most important bits right here, for your ultimate viewing pleasure:
Niall gave a huge shout out to the other boys and told them how much he loves them:

Harry pleaded with the fans to not forget about the band during their break, which, OBVIOUSLY NOT HAROLD:
WHEN HARRY SAID "PLEASE DONT FORGET US" I REALIZED THAT THE BOYS MIGHT BE AFRAID OF LOSING US JUST LIKE WE\'RE OF LOSING THEM
And he then reassured the crowd that the band definitely won\'t be forgetting them:
The duo group hugs somehow managed to uplift our souls and destroy our hearts at the same time, which is a rare and unusual level of power:
Niall literally grabs him and is like "not so fast I know you want a hug"

Louis and Harry poured cold water on the bizarre \'fued\' rumours by sharing a massive loving hug on stage:
