Most of you have probably heard of this British-Irish Boy Band.
This band consists of 5 members: Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan (who is Irish)
The dedicated fans of this group are called "Directioners" and also call the band "1D".
Directioners usually call those who claim they are fans, but don't know any of the inside jokes, or more than the song What Makes You Beautiful, "Directionators". These Directionators may also be those who only love one band member, make fun of one of the band members or send hate to one or more of the band members Girl Friends. [Currently only three have GFs: Zayn, Liam, and Louis]
The boys had first started out by auditioning as solo artist in the X Factor But they did not pass for solo parts, and as suggested by Simon Cowell, they formed the band One Direction and entered in as a group. During this time, they created "Video Diaries" which can be viewed on YouTube. [More on their X Factor Days in another page]
Their debut single was "What Makes You Beautiful", which came out September 11, 2011. It has over 100,000,00 views on YouTube. "What Makes You Beautiful" won the Britt for The Best British Single, therefore beating Adele in the Britts. Then they came out with their debut album, "Up All Night", which was released November 2011 in Ireland and the UK, but March 13, 2012 in the US.
One Direction's first tour, Up All Night , started December 18, 2011 and is to end July 1, 2012. In the UK, it was rumored the tickets were sold out in under 10 seconds. The tour included stops in the US, the UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia. The concerts were said to be exciting and everyone enjoyed the boys' performances. The DVD for this tour has been recently let out in stores, and you should be able to find it. Their net tour starts sometime in February next year.
