The guys of One Direction are quite busy taking the world by storm with their solo music careers, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have the time to catch up when they somehow end up at the same event together.
A mini 1D reunion was what fans were in for over the weekend at KIIS FM's Wango Tango concert when Niall Horan reunited with new father and former band mate Liam Payne; and yes, there is a picture to prove that this epic reunion happened in the best possible way.

The only downside to this is that Niall and Payno did not hit the stage together at the concert for a duet or mash up of their hits, but the “This Town” singer did share an epic and hilarious snap of their catch-up which had Liam putting his giant gold chain – or the “Payne Chain” as it has become known, on his friend.
Niall shared the moment with his fans on Twitter and wrote, “Great to see Payno today . Here I am being christened with ' the chain' . Missed ya buddie.”

Amazing! Now if only Niall would share a picture of himself wearing the actual chain, well that would just make everything better.
Liam on the other hand has remained silent on their actual reunion, but that doesn’t mean he won’t share a picture or two in the next couple of days.

Fans on the other hand have been sharing their excitement all over social media; many even hoping that the “Payne Chain” will make it’s way around another One Direction member sometime soon – which would be pretty epic.

It will probably be a longtime from now before all four of the guys do get together for a real reunion, but seeing them so happy to see one another are all fans really need to keep the hope alive.
