According to Perez Hilton, the commercial airs in Thailand, where Niall, Zayn, Harry, Liam and Louis performed a gig last Saturday (March 14) as part of their current world tour.

Taking to Twitter after the show, the group posted: “Thailand you were great! Hong Kong you’re up next.”

Also last week, One Direction’s manager, Simon Cowell, revealed his belief that the five-piece should all pursue solo side-projects, as well as staying with the band. Various members are known to be pursuing solo activities, though the group are currently working on a follow-up to the 2014 album ‘Four’.

“We’ve said to the boys ‘All of you should do other things,” Cowell told The Sun. “‘If you want to work with me, do some stuff on your own.’ They should be allowed to do whatever they want.”

Zayn Malik is guesting on a track for Naughty Boy’s next album, while Liam Payne is working with rapper Juicy J. Louis Tomlinson is joining Cowell as a judge in Sony Music talent contest Be In The Band. Harry Styles is writing songs for other artists under the name Mick Greenberg.

“I love the fact that Louis wants to do something with me, but I’m doing stuff with all the boys,” added Cowell.
