Australian One Direction fans furious after delayed tour dates clash with exams

Hundreds of Aussie One Direction fans have been left furious, after the Australian leg of the 1D tour was pushed back by one month.

'Not such a big deal', you may think. 'That'll give them 30 extra days to finish that SUPER DIRTY poster.'

Unfortunately, however, the scheduling change means the tour dates now fall smack bang in the middle of exam period. Yeah, not ideal.

We're not sure we'd be able to scream ourselves hoarse while waving a 'Niall let me see your shamc*ck' banner to the best of our ability with the thought of tomorrow's English exam in the back of our brain.

The One Direction lads were originally set to head down under in September, but due to 'scheduling conflicts' the tour now kicks off in mid-October - meaning dates clash with Aussie HSC and VCE exams.

Angry fans took to Twitter to vent their disappointment, with some claiming that their lives had been 'ruined'. Gulp.

A spokesperson for Sony said the changes were unfortunately unavoidable due to the band's tight schedule, but insisted that efforts had been made to avoid conflict with exams.

Efforts that failed clearly.

Supposedly, ticket holders have until the end of the year to claim a refund if the new dates are unsuitable. SOMEHOW we don't think many are going to be taking advantage of that little 'deal'.

What do you make of all this?
