I guess this hiatus is truly happening. On Saturday night, One Direction played their final show before their break in Sheffield. While they were amazing, as always, what was truly touching were the many emotional and grateful messages the members of the boy band sent out over social media once they had wrapped up their final performance.

First, the group posted a video on Twitter:

Then, the individual band members Tweeted out their (temporary) goodbyes:

The group also dispelled those pesky rumors about this break being permanent. According to Niall, we don’t have anything to worry about:

We seriously could not love them more, and when this break is over, we’ll welcome them back into our hearts with open arms (but let’s be honest, they never will have left!).
