One Direction’s Up All Night: The Live Tour DVD Makes History

Truth rating: 10

(One Direction)

One Direction just made more history.

The group’s Up All Night: The Live Tour DVD not only hit #1 in 25 different countries this week, but also managed to sell more copies in the United States than the No. 1 album on the Billboard chart (John Mayer’s “Born and Raised”).

One Direction’s DVD moved 76,000 copies to debut atop the Music Video Sales list, while Mayer’s #1 album sold 65,000 units, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

It’s the first time the week’s top DVD outsold the week’s top album.

Up All Night: The Live Tour is already the third-biggest selling video release of 2012, and by next week will be #2 behind Adele’s Live at the Royal Albert Hall.

One Direction is already the first British band to debut at #1 on the Billboard album chart, with March’s “Up All Night” doing what neither The Beatles nor The Rolling Stones ever managed.
