The best-selling boy band in history was in town on Saturday Oct 21 for a one-night-only gig - the only stop in Asia for their Larger Than Life tour. And boy did they come prepared to give their 20, fans who packed the National Stadium exactly what they relentlessly screamed all night for.

The fangirls and occasional boy were out in full unapologetic force and ready to relive our nostalgic pasts of frenzied boyband fandom, 90s cheesy pop and first teen crushes. Photo: Genevieve Loh.
