One Direction Tickets
Although many thought that the boy-band era of the 1990’s pop music scene was long over; the successful British-Irish boy band One Direction; has been providing audiences wrong with their recent success. After appearing on the hit television show, The X Factor, and placing third in the competition, the band was signed to Syco Records; owned by show creator Simon Cowell. Although the band would later sign to North American company Columbia Records, their appearance on and success withThe X Factor propelled their careers and giving them almost instant success in the industry.
The band, which is comprised of members Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louise Tomlinson, has been creating Beatle-like mania with their fans as they have been touring the world and promoting their debut album; which was released in November of 2011. The album premiered at the number two spot on the UK Albums Chart and had the highest sales recorded for a number two album in 2011. The album debuted at the number one spot on the US Billboard Charts, making the group the first UK band in history to debut on the US chart at number one, with their first album.
The album’s success can be traced to the band’s debut single “What Makes You Beautiful,” a chart-topping pop hit that has reached number one in several international markets. The song even won the group the award for Best British Single at the 2012 BRIT Awards. Although the group’s career-changing debut on the X Factor was only in 2010, in two short years this boy band has managed to take teen fans from all over the country by storm.
To take advantage of their recent whirlwind success, the band is embarking on their first tour, the 2012 Up All Night Tour, which is set to be followed by their 2013 World Tour. With enthusiastic fans all over the country, and popularity that is compared to bands like The Beatles, tickets for these shows may sell out fast as there is no denying that fans will be ready to see the band perform live for the first time.
