One Direction 2013: Ticket sales for 1D’s world tour rise by 50% since Harry Styles split from Taylor Swift!
It would seem that One Direction’s fans prefer heartthrob Harry Styles to be single, a phenomenon that is validated by the fact that ticket sales for the band’s world tour have reportedly shot up by 50% since it was revealed that Harry had split from Taylor Swift.
Pressparty report that Louise Mullock, a representative of Seatwave – where fans can buy tickets for 1D gigs – revealed the upsurge in sales.
She said, “1D and Taylor Swift are two of the most popular acts in the world and they’re consistently among our best-sellers.
“However, the adulation received by 1D is one of a kind, and the boys’ fans are famously protective.
“Since many of Taylor’s fans are also 1D fans, she may have bitten off more than she can chew by dividing their loyalties.”
However, the goings on between Harry and Taylor have taken a backseat for 1D fans who’re rushing to watch the band’s new video for Kiss You…
Many fans reckon that Kiss You could be set to break 1D’s record for the most views of their videos, however Vevo have yet to confirm that.
They did however tweet, “As w/ all big premieres, #KissYouOnVEVO 24hr views won’t be ready immediately.
“Once we get numbers from YouTube, our apps, etc. We’ll share!”
What do you think of Kiss You? And are you glad or sad that Haylor is no more?
For now, here’s a look at Kiss You…
