As One Direction attempt global domination, they're breaking records in the States. "Up All Night" is currently at No. 1 on the Billboard DVD chart and has outsold current Billboard chart-topper John Mayer this week — by over 10,000 copies! Could its success have something to do with the group's currently sold-out 27-show North American tour? We mean, there must be an awful lot of fans hungry for a One Direction live concert experience, and when tickets are scarce, a DVD is the next best option.
