One Direction paid a visit to Detroit last night on the second stage of their joint US tour with Big Time Rush, and it was another sell-out gig with fans-a-plenty going mad at the slightest sight of the boys.
We’ve been scouring YouTube looking for good fan videos, and here’s a decent one of One Direction singing “More Than This”:
Fresh from selling all of the tickets on their UK & Ireland tour next year (and pocketing a whopping £18 million in the process), the band have a further 10 dates to play on their tour, culminating in a performance in New York on March 9th.
Their debut US single, “What Makes You Beautiful”, was the highest first song for a UK act in the US Billboard chart for nearly 14 years. The song entered the at number 28 and sold 132,000 downloads in its first week according to Nielsen SoundScan.
A higher chart position is expected when it gets released in full.
Elsewhere, it seems there is another “One Direction” on US shores, and they’re quite keen to lay claim to the name. We can’t imagine our favourite five boys having to change their name to something else – (does anyone remember our April fool from last year – “Ooosh Potato” ?). We laughed anyway, even if you didn’t. LOL.
Hopefully any legal issues will be sorted out soon and it will all be forgotten about
