Before 5 Seconds of Summer got to this point, where they're spending the best part of a year gallivanting around the globe on their own Sounds Live Feels Live tour, they opened up for a little-known band going by One Direction at their Take Me Home and Where We Are shows. And d'ya know what? Ashton Irwin reckons they 'chose the right dudes.'

AGH TAKE US BACK PLEASE.

On November 6th 2012 Louis Tomlinson tweeted 'Gotta Get Out,' saying he'd been a fan of the boys for a while. Next news, they're on the Take Me Home tour and the 5SOS lads are just dead grateful, really.

Chatting to MYX Philippines, Michael said: "They gave us a huge platform to work from. They put us on their tour originally in 2013 when we had no music released! We had one little EP, but it was nothing great...it wasn't rockin'. They gave us this massive platform and trusted we would bring it."

Ash added: "They chose the right dudes. We really took that opportunity by the kahunas. When you take four guys like us, and we aspire to be a big band and touch a lot of people, we're determined. You give us a stage and we're going to do our best with it."
