One direction is gearing up to celebrate their anniversary as a band with special surprises for fans although Zayn Malik isn’t on board with it, they’re ready to finalize the plans. One Direction was initially only going to celebrate their upcoming 10th anniversary as a band if Zayn Malik, 27, was going to be part of it. Looks like the band is changing their tune and planning for the show to go on with or without the ex-member.

Liam Payne, 26, Louis Tomlinson, 28, Harry Styles, 26, and Niall Horan, 26, are still finalizing some special music-filled surprises for their fans including a possible appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden. They made it known that they are excited to move forward even though Zayn may be absent from it all.

A source EXCLUSIVELY announced on his Instagram account how all the band members are very excited to do something for the anniversary except Zayn! He mentioned how busy and distant Zayn has been from everything like signing up to do any music, live performance, or interviews for a while now and that is why they are doing the whole anniversary thing without him.

It turns out new music may be part of their plans. The band is also looking forward to doing something great with their monster hit songs by adding some new and different versions in them. They are all still into writing and recording their new song, besides Zayn of course.
