Diehard One Direction fans are waiting with baited breath for their favorite band’s comeback tour in 2020 called “On The Road Again.” So, it was understandable when they became visibly upset after the much-anticipated tour tickets — listed on Australia’s Ticketmaster website briefly — were gone in a wink.

Fans were driven into an instant frenzy when they spotted the boy band’s comeback show scheduled for Dec. 31, 2020, in Melbourne's Etihad Stadium. The listing also appeared on Spotify under One Direction's “Upcoming Shows” tab, before it was deleted from both platforms, leaving fans confused, Mail Online reported.

"I’m??so???confused?? "I went onto ticketmaster (through a link for some reason it’s not on when you go on the website) and went onto the ‘Eithad Stadium’ if you scroll down to Dec 31 it says there is a one direction tour: on the road again 2020??? Is this like someone joking or..." one fan wrote on Twitter.

Another social media user tweeted: "This is literally giving me headache. I search 'one direction tour' on Ticketmaster and they show me 'there's no event'.”

However, just as people say "once on the internet, always on the internet," fans posted screenshots of the presently deleted listing on Twitter, to the point where it had gone viral.

Further adding to the confusion, Eithad Stadium replied to a tirade of tweets that fans of the band tagged them in, saying: “Sorry this is not in our event schedule.”

It has been more than two years since One Direction took a hiatus and went their solo ways, each member – Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan – releasing multiple hit singles. And since all four of them had stayed mum on a potential reunion, fans had been scanning all the ticket sites for any clue of their comeback tour.

The glimpse of ticket listing for the band’s comeback tour appeared two days after One Direction’s Twitter page started celebrating #8YearsOfOneDirection by tweeting out lyrics of the band's famous songs every few hours.

The lyrics has not stopped coming, inviting fans to tweet out messages and tributes for their favorite band, under the same hashtag, making it one of the top trending hashtags on Twitter.

However, since the rest of the band members are busy with their own separate tours both in the United States as well as around the globe — as their constant updates on Twitter indicate — Tomlinson was the only one who tweeted out in commemoration of the eight anniversary of One Direction.

“#8YearsOfOneDirection Where has the time gone!? Thank you so much to every single person who’s ever supported us. Big love!” he wrote, adding in another tweet: “And remember if it’s by one direction and it’s a banger I probably wrote on it #8YearofOneDirection.”
