London: British boyband One Direction are reportedly enlisting as many as 100 bodyguards to look after them in their upcoming world tour.

The band is ready to kickstart their `Where we are` world tour in the United States next month, reportedly. "It`s an insane amount of security for one band, but considering the way crowds form around them, it`s necessary," a source said.

The band`s singers Liam Payne and Niall Horan are apparently concerned about their safety."It`s mainly Niall and Liam who are starting to get really obsessive about security. Liam`s fears grew after two fans stole his pants in Australia last year," the source added.
