One Direction's Niall Horan is hoping to tan his "Irish chicken legs".

The singer is busy travelling the world with bandmates Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne for their Take Me Home Tour.

The boys are playing in Norway tonight and have been enjoying the sunny weather.

However, blonde Niall is a little worried his fair complexion might suffer in the heat.

"The sun is out bigtime! There Is a chance of these chicken Irish legs gettin a bit of sun! They might be burnt but at least they got sun (sic)" he joked on Twitter.

One Direction played in Germany and Denmark over the weekend and will be moving on to Sweden tomorrow.

It seems they have had fun so far and Niall is looking forward to tonight's concert.

"Norwayyyyyyyyy ! I've heard the Norwegian fans are nuts! That sounds good to me! Lets have fun!" he posted.

"Been really enjoying the European leg of the tour! Crowds have been crazy! Lets make the rest of it loud! (sic)."

The band has apparently been stepping up security for their tour.

According to British newspaper The Sun, One Direction will be looked after by bodyguards that have worked for US President Barack Obama when they hit the American leg of their shows.

Liam recently split from girlfriend Danielle Peazer, which is thought to make him a target for crazed fans.

“Liam becoming single has made things even more fraught. Some of the security staff have worked with Obama and in war zones," a source told the publication.
