THEY’VE sold more than 1.6million records in just four months; had 100million views on YouTube; two No 1 selling books; scored two major hit singles and a platinum selling debut album in the UK; and have been nominated for Best Single for What Makes You Beautiful at this year’s Brit Awards.

Now Zayn, Niall, Liam, Harry and Louis have announced an arena tour of the UK and Ireland in February and March 2013 making their headlining debut at the Metro Radio Arena Newcastle on Sunday, March 24, 2013.

Currently making waves in the USA by entering the U.S. iTunes Top 10, the band is about to embark on a tour of America with boy band Big Time Rush.

They recently filmed a cameo appearance for popular Nickelodeon show iCarly, as well as appearing on the cover of the likes of M Magazine. Over 100,000 fans in America also signed up to the band’s U.S. Facebook page in a bid to bring One Direction to their home state – Dallas showed the most love for the band to emerge triumphant.
