One Direction’s Up All Night: The Live Tour DVD is #1 on the Billboard DVD chart today making it the highest selling music release of the week surpassing sales of the #1 album, John Mayer’s Born and Raised. The band once again makes US chart history as this is the first time a #1 music DVD outsold the #1 album.
The 76,000 copies sold makes it the highest DVD debut of 2012 and the 2nd highest debut in the past 5 years behind Adele Live At The Royal Albert Hall. This amazing debut comes hot on the heels of One Direction’s massive US success as their debut single ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ was recently certified double platinum by the RIAA.
In March 2012, the group made chart history when 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. To date the album has been certified GOLD and sold over 700,000 copies in the US alone.
UP ALL NIGHT is a worldwide success selling over 2.3M albums and has charted at #1 in 16 countries (US, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, Italy, Sweden, Turkey, Mexico, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand). More interviews of Demi’s new boyfriend under!
