One Direction took the stage at Madison Square Garden in NYC at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Monday, Dec. 3, 2012, to the delight of the band's legions of worldwide fans, who have made 1D an international sensation.
This isn't the band's first time playing New York, as they played as recently there as May 26, when they rocked the Beacon Theatre. But it's their first time at the Garden, and the show sold out weeks ahead of time, according to EntertainmentWise.com.
The Garden's website offered the following information about the show and about One Direction themselves:
"Due to the overwhelming popular demand, pop sensation One Direction are set to headline the prestigious Madison Square Garden in New York City on December 3, 2012!
One Direction are Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. All of the group hail from the U.K., except 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."
Tickets for the show sold for between $34.50 and $84.50, and the Examiner reports that the audience was expected to include celebrities including singer Taylor Swift, 22, who is rumored to be dating 18-year-old One Direction member Harry Styles.
