Last year One Direction released their record-breaking third album 'Midnight Memories', which saw them named as the IFPI's Global Artist of 2013 for becoming the biggest selling act in the world. They also became the first ever band to have their first three albums debut at No.1 in the US Billboard Chart, hitting the top spot in a further 30 countries worldwide. The band - Harry, Niall, Liam, Louis and Zayn - have just completed the first leg of their massive, sell-out 'Where We Are' stadium tour, which saw the boys visit South America for the very first time to an overwhelming reception. The UK and Ireland leg kicks off at Dublin's Croke Park on 23rd May, before moving to Europe and the USA throughout the rest of 2014.
One Direction's new single 'You & I' is released on 25th May 2014.
