One Direction wrapped their first headline tour of the U.S. last night with a show in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan have spent much of 2012 here in the U.S. and Canada promoting their debut album Up All Night, and launched their first headlining tour in May after opening up for Big Time Rush on their Better With U Tour in February and March.
Joined by fellow UK superstar Olly Murs, who described the journey as “superb,” last night’s show not only wrapped up their U.S. tour but also completed the last leg of the Up All Night Tour. The boys enjoyed their final show with band member Niall Horan tweeting, “Wow ft,lauderdale! Great way to finish our 1st headline US tour! #upallnight tour is done! Long 6 months but amazing! Thank you all so much.”
But with the first headlining tour complete, what’s next for the chart-topping boyband? As reported earlier, the boys are working on their second album which they hope to have out by Christmas. And they hope to have the first single from that album out as soon as September. “We’ve got to make a decision for a single soon,” Niall Horan tells MTV News. “Because we have to get a single out towards September… We want to have the most control that we possibly can of everything that we do.”
The boys also have a few more shows to prepare for, the 2012 Olympics closing ceremonies, a sold out show at Madison Square Garden in New York City in December and then their 2013 World Tour which kicks off in London in February and stops by Pepsi Center in Denver in July 2013.
