Many of us will remember the squeals of excitement as One Direction took over Clevedon Pier.
The English and Irish pop band enjoyed 61 number ones, notching up an incredible 36 million sales worldwide, including 20 million singles, 11 million albums and over a million DVDs. Made in the AM, released in October of 2015, just before the hiatus, was their fifth album to debut in the Billboard top 10 — breaking a record set by The Beatles.
Fans of One Direction have been flocking to the Grade 1 listed pier in North Somerset, after the group issued a video called ‘10 Years of One Direction’ promoted with the hashtag #10YearsOf1D, which shows highlights of the past decade for the group.
Phil Curme, chairman of Clevedon Pier and Heritage Trust, said: “This has been a very difficult year for the Pier, but an unexpected highlight has been the way in which Clevedon Pier has been an essential place for One Direction fans to visit, in much the same way as Abbey Road became an iconic location for fans of The Beatles.
