The band take to the stage at the Roundhouse in Camden as they unveil new song 'Live While We're Young'.
One Direction paid tribute to their beloved fans as they played the iTunes Festival in London last night (20th September).
Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik thanked the audience for their continued support throughout their hit-packed set at the Roundhouse in Camden.
One Direction's performance at the iTunes Festival came on the same day that the group's new single 'Live While We're Young' was given its first play on Capital FM.
The song's official debut was brought forward after a low-quality version of the song leaked online.
The band also revealed the video for the song yesterday, which was praised by Capital FM fans as "perfect".
One Direction did not perform 'Live While We're Young' at the iTunes Festival, telling the audience that they had not had chance to rehearse the song, but they did delight the crowd with their hit single 'What Makes You Beautiful'.
One Direction also played their other singles 'One Thing' and 'Gotta Be You', along with a covers section, which included The Zutons 'Valerie' and 'I Gotta Feeling' by the Black Eyed Peas.
Later in their set, the audience of competition winners went wild as One Direction also performed a cover of 'Use Somebody' by Kings Of Leon and answered questions from people watching around the world via Twitter.
Harry, Niall, Liam, Louis and Zayn drew huge cheers throughout their performance with a number of costume changes as the theme of the concert took the crowd through different weather seasons.
One Direction concluded their performance at the iTunes Festival with the song 'I Want'.
The gig marked the last time One Direction are scheduled to take to the stage until they return next year for a massive UK arena tour, which will begin in London in February.
Meanwhile, the iTunes Festival in London is set to continue tonight (21st September) with a performance from Jessie J.
