One Direction brings "Up All Night" to North America
Pop-rockers One Direction will take on their first headlining tour of North America this spring as they drum up support for their debut album, "Up All Night."
The young British quintet, comprised of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, will kick off their inaugural U.S. run with a May 24 performance in Fairfax, VA. More than 20 shows are confirmed, and more dates will be added in the coming weeks, according to a press release.
Onsales for some of the North American dates begin this weekend (3/24); details are available at the band's website.
One Direction released its full-length debut, "Up All Night," across the pond in November via Simon Cowell's Syco Music, while U.S. retailers unleashed the album earlier this month through Columbia Records. The effort topped The Billboard 200 and peaked at No. 2 on the U.K. Albums chart.
One Direction hit the big time after placing third on the seventh season of Britain's "The X Factor." Their debut album was the fast-selling debut album on the U.K. Albums chart last year.
