Throngs of avid fans flocked the launch of One Direction's "Up All Night" limited edition album last Saturday (Feb. 11) at Astroplus, SM North The Block.
The event was supposed to start at 2PM, but as early as 10AM, One Directioners were already milling around the event area, eager to get their hands on the British-Irish boy band's limited edition studio album. The crowd rushed to the record store upon opening, causing some damage to the interiors (cracked tiles and skewed gateway detector pillars).
The main event was moved to the 3rd floor to avoid further damage. A short program was held petitioning for the group to stage a concert in the Philippines. Fans carried banners containing petition messages while enthusiastically singing some of the group's hit songs.
The group, composed of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, got their break from the talent show X Factor where they finished in third place. Their song, "One Thing," is currently at #2 on the MYX Daily Top Ten.
