One Direction forced to abandon Peru hotel

Pop sensations ONE DIRECTION were forced to abandon their hotel in Peru earlier this week (beg28Apr14) after crowds of hysterical fans sparked security concerns.

The Story Of My Life hitmakers flew to the Peruvian city of Cusco for a brief break from the South American leg of their Where We Are world tour and paid a visit to the ruins of Inca city Machu Picchu.

However, when they returned from the historical landmark police officials urged the band and their entourage to stay away from the Palacio Nazarenas hotel where they were intending to spend the night as officers battled to control a crowd of more than 250 frantic fans who had blocked all entrances to the building.

The band instead stayed in another posh hotel in the remote Sacred Valley, before jetting to Santiago, Chile for two shows on Wednesday and Thursday (30Apr-01May14).
