This Direction Please!

The Pop world’s latest Lotharios, One Direction, will be hitting Manchester on the 15th and 16th…that’s this weekend people! And just weeks after our dose of Bieber fever! Aren’t we a lucky bunch? Performing at the Manchester Evening News Arena to hoards of screaming teenage girls (and grown women…and men, come on who are you trying to kid? We’re all friend’s here!).

The pop band comprises the vocal talents of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson. Despite appearances that would suggest the boys have been childhood friends, they were in fact formed on the hit TV show The X Factor.

After the X Factor came to an end, One Direction soon shot to stardom and just days after they conquered the market here on British soil, they took America by storm. With chart topping songs such as ‘What makes you beautiful’ and ‘Live while we’re young’, a reported 50 million dollar business empire, over 14 million single sales and 8 million album sales it is no wonder that 2012 was dubbed ‘The Year of One Direction’ by The Huffington where to buy viagra buy kern pharma diazepam connect Post. They were also proclaimed 2012’s “Top New Artist” by Billboard.

Neil McCormick of The Daily Telegraph published an article on the possible origin of One Direction’s success in North America, he noted that Americans had left a gap in the market and that it took the eminence of Justin Bieber to demonstrate that there was still a market for “clean cut, wholesome, whiter- than-white, middle class parent friendly pop: cute boys advocating puppy love”. One Direction has been acclaimed as being the spark that triggered the resurgence in the boy band concept. And the team here at The Mitre will be forever grateful!
