The 2012 One Direction tour opened on Dec. 18, and the group performed in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand before making its way to the United States for a show in Uncasville, CT on May 22. That tour ended on July 1 in Sunrise, FL. The 2013 One Direction Tour will take the band to some new regions of the world. It starts with a London show on Feb. 22 and concludes in Auckland, New Zealand, on Oct. 13. 2013 One Direction tickets are already in high demand, so fans are encouraged to secure their tickets well before the band embarks on the tour!
The story behind the formation of One Direction is an interesting one. All five members were interested in performing on “The X Factor” in the United Kingdom, and each individually entered the male soloist competition. All five were denied a chance to participate on the show. However, guest judge Nicole Scherzinger felt strongly that they deserved second chances and brought up the idea of the five forming a group and entering the groups competition. They did so, and One Direction was born. Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson comprise the group. Horan is Irish, and the other four members of One Direction are English.
The final episode of “The X Factor” that season was the United Kingdom’s most watched television program of 2010 as 18 million people watched One Direction place third in the competition. The group grew further in popularity when it took part in The X Factor Live Tour in early 2011. One Direction signed with Syco Entertainment in January 2011 and with Columbia Records in November of that year. Its first album, “Up All Night,” was released to a British audience in November and to American fans in March.
