One DirectionThey've conquered the UK, cracked America and invaded girls' hearts worldwide, now British boy band sensation One Direction are coming to London for eight nights as part of their 2013 world tour. With the X Factor a distant memory, the five heartthrobs have exploded on the music scene since their infectious 2011 debut single 'What Makes You Beautiful.' They've also won several awards and released two studio albums the first of which was the UK's fastest selling debut album of 2011. Whether it's for their musical talents or simply their boyish good looks, it can't be denied that the five-piece are currently winning the popularity contest in the music industry.

 

About The O2 Arena

The centrepiece of the redeveloped Millennium Dome is the O2 Arena, the first purpose-built music venue in London. With a capacity of 23,000, it offers the rather soulless Wembley Arena some serious competition. Big name acts such as The Rolling Stones, The Killers, Justin Timberlake, Girls Aloud and Tina Turner have performed on stage, with the likes of Beyonce, AC/DC, Kings of Leon and Britney Spears set to appear in 2009.
