One Direction Net Worth $30 Million
A well-known pop band, how rich is “One Direction”? According to sources, in 2013, the band made $15.7 million from their “Take Me Home” tour, and earned $60 million from their documentary concert called “One Direction: This is Us”. That same year, the band earned $457 million from ticket sales alone. In 2014, 1D’s earnings amounted to $75 million. In regards to their total wealth, “One Direction’s” net worth is estimated to be $30 million, most of which they have accumulated due to their ticket and album sales.
The band was founded in 2010, when each member of the group auditioned as a solo artist for a music competition called “The X Factor”. Seeing as the boys were talented enough to participate in the show, Nicole Scherzinger and Simon Cowell, who both served as the judges on the show, decided to put the boys together, thus forming “One Direction”. The group became an instant success, as it gained a lot of support from viewers of the show. Even though 1D failed to secure the win on “The X Factor” and instead enjoyed a third place, they were later signed to Simon Cowell’s record label “Syco Records”. Prior to the release of their debut album, “One Direction” published a book called “One Direction: Forever Young (Our Official X Factor Story)”, which reached a #1 position on the list of best-sellers, compiled by “The Sunday Times”. The group then went on the X Factor Live Tour, and soon afterwards began working on their first studio album.
Over the years, the group has won 177 awards, among of which are BRIT Awards, MTV Awards, People’s Choice Awards and Pure Beauty Awards to name a few. 1D had also made it to the Guinness World Records, for “most Twitter followers for a pop group”, “highest debut by a UK group on the US singles chart”, and “first UK group to debut at No.1 in USA with a debut album”.
