One Direction adds third LA concert date

Due to the continued demand from Los Angeles Directioners eager to see the group live on stage, One Direction have added a third Staples Center concert to their 2013 summer tour itinerary.

The group will now perform at Staples Center on Friday August 9, 2013, in addition to their previously-announced shows on August 7th and 8th. Tickets for the third night will go on sale next Saturday – September 8th – at 10 AM at

With their entire May/June 2012 tour selling out in just minutes, One Direction are giving their fans a chance to see the group live once again in the summer of 2013 as part of their World Tour– the earliest they are able to return with a tour to the States. The Live Nation promoted 25 city tour kicks off in Ft. Lauderdale, FL on June 13, 2013 and hits New York, Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles, and more.

One Direction will appear at the MTV Video Music Awards on Thursday, September 6th and will also host, “My First Time,” a half-hour preview special dedicated to reliving the most memorable VMA performances of all time. “My First Time” will air tonight at 11:00 PM ET/PT on MTV.

One Direction has certainly had a very busy summer: they performed at the London 2012 Olympic Games’ massive closing ceremony concert earlier this month. Also, at the Fox Teen Choice Awards in June, the group won for Breakout Artist, Summer Music Star and Choice Love Song.

One Direction gained notoriety in 2010 after appearing on the X-Factor UK. Their global smash debut album, Up All Night, entered the charts at #1 in 17 countries and has been certified triple platinum in Ireland, double platinum in the UK & Australia, and platinum in New Zealand. One Direction made history as their debut album Up All Night entered the US Billboard 200 chart at #1 with over 176,000 copies sold making them the first British group ever to debut at #1 in the US with their debut album release. Their debut single “What Makes You Beautiful” has recently been certified platinum in the US for sales in excess of 1,000,000 units. They recently announced a brand new single -- “Live While We’re Young” will be available to download via iTunes on Monday, October 1st

One Direction are Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. All of the group hail from the U.K., save for Horan, who is from Ireland. All five of the boys (ages 18-20) auditioned for the UK X Factor in 2010 as solo artists. However, at the suggestion of Simon Cowell they joined forces as a group, quickly becoming one of the competitions most popular acts of all time, finishing in the final three and garnering a gigantic fan-base along the way.
