47-year-old William H Klein worried officials by calling up the Hersheypark Stadium in Pennsylvania in July last year.

He said: “If One Direction plays tomorrow, the stadium will blow up.”

However, Klein’s call was traced to a payphone and the man was later identified by CCTV.

Court heard that the man had promised to get his daughters tickets to the gig, before it all fell through – leaving Klein distraught.

As a result of the threat, the gig – which went ahead as planned – saw the audience subject to stringent security checks.
