One Direction Tour Tickets
One Direction is the name of the band that many say have initiated British Invasion 2.0. Consisting of five members, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson, this group has also been held responsible for the mainstream comeback of the boyband phenomenon. With a chart topping and record breaking single, “What Makes You Beautiful” and “Up All Night”, the debut album that is now the fastest selling album of the year, the group seems to have surpassed every obstacle, making it clear that they are here to stay. Another brilliant milestone in a career that is still relatively in infancy is that already there have been $1.5 million worth of One Direction 2013 tour tickets been sold. With all that they have achieved, it would seem that the members have been working together for many years. When in reality, it all started when the boys decided to audition for the popular British talent show, The X Factor—separately. The way the show works is that they take their existing pool of contestants and divide them into four categories: the boys, the girls, the groups and the over 25s. Malik, Horan, Tomlinson, Styles, and Payne all applied as solo candidates but failed to make it into the finals for the “Boys” category. Sensing that their talent is too worthy to waste, the shows judges Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger decided to put them all together and let them through to the finals in the groups category. Thus One Direction was born. Mentored by Simon Cowell, the group made it all the way to top 3 in the show before finally getting eliminated. But Cowell did not wait long—he seized the opportunity to use the talent the boys had and by January of 2011, had signed them onto his label, “Syco Records”. Now the group has a major deal in the United States as well, all of which has led to the One Direction 2013 tour.
From their exposure on the show, One Direction had already attracted a devoted group of followers that call themselves the “Directioners”. So when the release of their first single was announced, it caused an unbelievable amount of excitement amongst the fans which was translated into preorders for the single, which in itself broke many records. Once “What Makes You Beautiful” was released, it became the single with the highest grossing first week ever. In the same way as now, when their fans are scrambling to get One Direction 2013 tour tickets. It was during the Brit Awards this year that the band announced the One Direction 2013 tour after they had accepted their award in the category of “Best British Single”. 15 tour dates around the UK were announced. But because the tickets sold almost instantly and because there was still a high demand, more dates in the UK had to be added. Next, they announced dates in North America as well. The boys will take “Madison Square Garden” as well. This will be the band’s first ever headlining arena tour. Fans will not want to miss out on the One Direction 2013 tour.
The sales of the One Direction 2013 tour tickets went up to 300,000 in less than one day. This is not counting the original dates that were announced—they were sold out in mere minutes, and when a calculation was made, it was deducted that 1000 One Direction tickets are being sold per minute. All of the six dates at the 02 arena in London have been sold out, the four dates in the O2 Arena in Dublin are heavily booked, and all of the Belfast dates have been announced as full house already. Moreover, the shows over in North America have been sold out as well, and extra dates have to be added. In New Zealand and Australia, a total of 18 dates had been planned. The tickets for the 18 shows in the One Direction 2013 tour grossed at a staggering $15.7 million. The band’s prior trips to the countries made them so popular that even at this side of the world, an overwhelming demand for tickets for their shows was seen. One must keep in mind that the band consists largely of young boys who have not even been working together for two complete years, and who only started their professional career a year ago. The response they have gotten is because of their talent, likeability, and their hard work.
