One Direction Infection!

Unless you have been living in a cave you can’t help but notice a new British boy band has become all the rage lately. The name of this group is One Direction. Five teenage boys named Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne were discovered on the TV show The XFactor. They each auditioned as solo artists but were later squished in a new boy band by Simon Cowell. After releasing their first album on September 11, 2011, young girls (and even some guys) all over the world caught the “One Direction Infection”. Up All Night, their first album, debuted at number one in the U.S. Their debut single “What Makes You Beautiful” and their new album also reached number one in the UK. To put this in perspective, One Direction became the first UK band in history to reach number one on the U.S.  charts with their debut album. We are talking rarefied air here, Beatles’ territory but rest assured the boys play that down with all the requisite humbleness. They are currently on an “Up All Night” Tour consisting of a total of 63 shows. Almost every show is sold out or close to being so. They also announced a UK and Ireland Arena Tour in 2013.  They have amassed 2.35 million Twitter followers in a short period of time which in comparison to Gaga’s 21 million may not seem like much but is actually quite impressive.  Boy bands tend to have a short shelf life but who knows which direction “One Direction” will...
