A word from a Sofar team member on the importance of this milestone:

"This week, we celebrated 10 years of the iconic British boyband, One Direction. Four of five original band members (no shade, Zayn), shared memories and heartfelt messages about their time in the band, from X-Factor through their five studio albums. It was a glorious day for 1D fans to relive our glory days, connect with old concert-going friends, and pray for a reunion tour. 1D forever." — Grace, NYC
