One Direction raise £600k for Stand Up To Cancer charity through Where We Are world tour ticket salesSaturday, July 4th, 2015
OH WILL SOMEONE GET THE ONE DIRECTION BLOKES A KNIGHTHOOD ALREADY. Not only are they generally lovely lads, potentially angels in disguise and definitely heaven sent creatures, but now they’ve raised a massive £600k for a cancer charity through their ticket sales.
If someone could grab some halos and fluffy wings that would be great, ’cause 1D have donated 50p from every ticket sold last year on their Where We Are world tour to Stand Up To Cancer, generating a massive £600k donation. Incredible.
Which, er, if our Year 6 maths teacher taught us anything at all, works out as 30,000,000 tickets – which is impressive in itself, no?
The figures were released by company ODOT (One Direction On Tour), and as far as we’re concerned, anything that involves Niall, Harry, Liam and Louis waggling their crotches around in the name of charity is a-okay and dandy with us.
The boys have previously raised shed loads of dollar for SUTC with competitions and the opportunity for fans to win once in a life time prizes, generally proving that they’re great and winning at life.
Moral of the story? One Direction concerts = donating money to charity. WIN WIN.
The day the Clash kicked out Mick Jones, the song I grieved to was “Complete Control.” When Zayn quit 1D, “Clouds” was the one I obsessed over — “love is never ever simple,” so true. (Perhaps I overfeel these things.) “No Control” is still my favorite Four track, but “Clouds” is the one that’s grown the most over time — anyone can bite the Beatles, but it takes true pop visionaries like 1D to plunder Paul McCartney & Wings. Anybody who doubts Macca’s genius as a guitarist — besides everything else he is — needs to consider how 1D could build such a world-beating pop epiphany out of the “Band on the Run” riff.

Yep, we live in an era when The Keith Richards Award for Louche Style goes to a guy in a teen-pop boy band created by Simon Cowell. But we gotta give it up: The kid from 1D who parties with Kate Moss—and dated Kendall and Taylor—picks the same jeans and Chelsea boots off the floor every morning, pushes his hair out of his face, and somehow emerges looking great. These looks are when he was at his most rock-godly
The music industry has enhanced and refined its ability to churn out successful boy bands, with generation after generation producing at least one to go down in history amongst the great. And the boy band of the moment—One Direction—may go down as one of the highest-paid acts of its kind. This past year the band earned $125 million, leading them to a fourth place spot on the Celebrity 100 and the title of highest-earning band and second highest-earning musician behind Katy Perry. While baby-boomers and children of the 80′s may shake their heads, the group out-earned both the Rolling Stones and the Eagles. The majority of the band’s earnings came from its world tour: With 74 dates during our scoring period and seven-figure grosses at every stop, the band earned top dollar for its Where We Are tour. The group, which is known to make teenage girls swoon, has also capitalized off of its popular image, partnering with Nabisco, Pepsi and Colgate in endorsement deals. And, for those who can’t get enough of 1D, the band has created a surprisingly lucrative fragrance. Even with Zayn Malik’s departure, it seems One Direction is headed in, well, one direction: up.
