The 'Gotta Be You' star says the band's headline tour has been life changing for them all.

One Direction star Niall Horan says the band's 'Up All Night' tour of America has been "nuts" and says they all feel incredibly lucky with the reception they've received from US fans.

The 'What Makes You Beautiful' singers launched their headline tour of North America back in May, and will bring the countrywide jaunt to a close at the end of this weekend. 

"It's been, as you can see clearly, absolutely nuts," One Direction's Niall Horan told MTV News. "We're still trying to get our head around it. 

"It's been crazy, we've had a lot of fun," Niall explained, before recalling a recent occasion where he and band mate Liam Payne were mobbed in New York City. "When we were in New York we were on our day off and me and Liam was going down the street with one of our security guards and we got absolutely mobbed by like 600 people in Times Square.

"I thought, 'There is literally not one place I can walk down the street'."

Niall also credited the band's US fans for making the tour so memorable, noting that the band have "never had a bad crowd" throughout their lengthy headline tour of America this year.

He added: "We're very lucky we've got amazing crowds. We're very lucky we kind of get the adrenaline rush off them."
