“Our fans are simply the best in the world. The support they have shown us has been incredible and we’re all so grateful to each and every one of them.” Niall Horan.
One Direction gained notoriety in 2010 after appearing on the X-Factor UK. Their global smash debut album, Up All Night, entered the charts at #1 in 14 countries and has been certified triple platinum in Ireland, double platinum in the UK & Australia, and platinum in New Zealand. The album entered the US Billboard 200 chart at #1 with over 176,000 copies sold making them the first British group ever to debut at #1 in the US with their debut album release. Their debut single “What Makes You Beautiful” has recently been certified platinum in the US for sales in excess of 1,000,000 units. The Up All Night: The Live Tour DVD will be available on May 29, 2012 featuring a 73 minute concert of their hit songs, plus behind the scenes footage and three music videos (“What Makes You Beautiful,” “Gotta Be You” and “One Thing.”
One Direction are Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. All of the group hail from the U.K., save for Horan, who is from Ireland. All five young men (ages 18-20) auditioned for the UK X Factor in 2010 as solo artists. At the suggestion of Simon Cowell, they joined forces as a group, finishing in the final three and garnering a gigantic fan-base along the way.
