One Direction's movie premieres in London (22nd August, 2013)

The U.K. band One Direction created excitement in London when thousands of fans went to see the premiere of their first movie. Some fans camped in London for three days to see the band. The first 200 hundred got tickets on the red carpet. Organisers asked many fans to watch the premiere at home because it was "being streamed live all over the world, so they can get the best views from their own homes".


 
 

London looked like the craziness of the Beatles in the 1960s. The movie's director said it was probably something similar to Beatlemania. He said that it was the same worldwide and that the band are chased by fans everywhere. Over 5,000 people camped outside their hotel in Mexico. He said the band's popularity was growing. The band became the first UK group to have a debut single get to number one in the US.
