An additionl date, a December 3rd, 2012 appearance at Madison Square Garden by One Direction sold out in a mere ten minutes.

"Our fans are simply the best in the world. The support they have shown us has been incredible and we’re all so grateful to each and every one of them. We can’t wait to see everyone this summer, at Madison Square Garden and of course when we play our world tour in 2013," said One Direction's Niall Horan. - CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
