When the sparkle of Christmas has faded away and the New Year glow no longer warms the chilly winter evenings, there can’t be a better way to beat the come-down than a thrilling evening of catchy pop tunes and infectious audience hysteria. Luckily for anyone who wants to work off the mince pies with a night of shameless teeny-bopping, runaway hit boy-band One Direction has dutifully stepped up to the mark with an extensive UK leg of their 2013 World Tour.
Announcing the band’s tour plans at this year’s Brit Awards, One Direction’s Liam Payne instantly made 2013 the year dreams come true for millions of love-struck teenage girls around the world. For the band’s British bevvy, February is the month to look forward to – the quintet will start their run of 38 UK dates at London’s O2 arena on 23rd

at their local venue will be ecstatic to hear that the boys are making several stop-offs in, among others, Birmingham, Cardiff and Newcastle during their epic 2 month home visit, which culminates at the Manchester Arena on 19th
The storming success of their first album ‘Up All Night’ paved the way for an equally well-received follow-up, and their recent second offering ‘Take Me Home’ is so far hitting all the right notes. Its debut single, ‘Live While We’re Young’, made countless top ten appearances worldwide and achieved unprecedentedly high initial sales figures for a British band in the US.
Only Direction is Up
It’s hard to believe that it’s only been two years since music mogul Simon Cowell made the ingenious decision to group individual acts Zayn, Niall, Liam, Harry and Louis together on the X Factor. Since their inception as One Direction in 2010, they’ve broken the States, sold over 12 million records and videos, performed at the London Olympics Opening Ceremony, and started planning their 3D biopic. Not a bad run for a bunch of boys all under the age of 21.
Following in the footsteps of megastar Justin Bieber, the cheeky yet clean-cut lads have won the hearts of kids and parents alike with their brand of school-disco pop. A social media sensation, the band’s Twitter account boasts close to 9 million followers, and allows fans from all over the world to feel connected to their favourite crooners.
With their first world tour lined up for 2013, it’s looking as though these award-winning chart-toppers, who a mere matter of months ago were five ordinary schoolboys, aren’t likely to see an end to their winning streak any time soon.

Reviewers of One Direction’s first tour praised them for living up to the hype, and delivering a solid vocal performance and a night of all-round entertainment to wow even the most hardened cynic.
