Fresh from a sold-out Madison Square Garden concert last December 3, One Direction hosted a global fan event, meeting competition winners from over 40 different countries.
The "Bring Me To 1D" campaign started in the summer and saw fans around the world competing for a chance to win a "Go1Den" ticket through various challenges, creating content, answering questions or just plain luck. An interactive map on the band's website constantly updated itself with the locations of various winners as each ticket was discovered from Costa Rica to the Philippines.
The prize with each "Go1Den" ticket was a once-in-a-lifetime trip to New York to see One Direction's amazing MSG concert which featured a cameo performance from Ed Sheeran followed by a special fan event where Niall, Liam, Zayn, Louis and Harry met the winners and thanked them for their support during a whirlwind year.
One Direction's new album "Take Me Home" was released worldwide in November and debuted at #1 in over 35 countries with the boys becoming the first UK act to debut at #1 on the US Billboard chart with each of their first two albums. In 2013, they will be embarking on a world tour, while their first 3D concert film will be released on August 30, 2013, directed by filmmaker Morgan Spurlock.
