One Direction, dubbed the new British invasion, was created during the seventh season of the UK version of “X-Factor.” Six young men, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, had tried out as solo candidates but did not advance in the boys category. Instead, they joined together as a band and placed third during the TV show’s final week. After the show ended, One Direction was signed by Simon Cowell’s Syco Records and recorded their debut album “Up All Night,” which was released in September 2011. In November 2012, the band released its second album, “Take Me Home,” which also is the name for their current North American tour.
