1D World


There was no doubt about what's on in Adelaide by 8am on December 1 as a stream of hundreds of excited young girls (and a boy) flocked to Australia's newest 1D World Adelaide store on King William St in the city.

The One Direction Queue


A queue led from the shop front along King William St and round the corner on to Grenfell St, under the watchful gaze of security staff.

Most of the happy crowd would have been early teenage girls, although there were some both younger and older.

A Security Guard Monitors 1D World Adelaide Queue


The latest of the Australian One Direction stores, 1D World Adelaide opened to suppressed excitement with occasional bursts of mass hysteria from the crowd when photographers drew near.

Queue for One Direction Store


Of course anyone reading this would realise that One Direction are the English-Irish boy band comprising members Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson.

One Direction - Waiting for You


This massively successful boy band have sold over 15 million albums, CDs and DVDs worldwide, and the figure may well be a lot higher after Christmas. Their millions of fans are stalwart supporters, eagerly looking for the latest news or music clip from the boy wonders.

While plenty of fans would have queued for the privilege of buying some merchandise of their fave group at any time, there was the additional bonus of a chance to win One Direction tickets. The next One Direction Australian tour is not long away, guaranteeing ongoing interest in this pop-up store for its entire lifetime.

Ready for the One Direction Rush


At 9am sharp the doors to 1D World were opened and burly security guards ensured an orderly staged entry for delighted fans.

Eager Fans @ 1D World Store Adelaide


Inside, fans were sometimes not quite ready to shop. Clusters of girls gyrated with mobile phones recording the occasion for others who couldn't make it.

Recording in One Direction


There was still a lengthy line-up 30 minutes later as customers inside pored (or pawed?) over their idols.

Is One Direction Better than Another?


The One Direction store caters for almost everyone (and all budgets), with a One Direction window poster costing $10, a 1D annual, charm bracelet or selected t-shirts for $15, and a cap, compact mirror or poster pack priced at $30.

Wedding Bells for One Direction?


The poster pack includes a 2013 calendar, signed poster of Zayne, Niall, Liam, Harry and Louis all nicely presented in a flower tote bag.

Who is Your Favourite in One Direction?


If Father Christmas (or your parents) can afford a little more, then all the boys are available as dolls for $150 each. Their clothes can be removed but there is nothing that this clean living band would be embarrassed to show.

I love the thought of you lining up with all these girls to get a glimpse of the store Dave. ;) Haha this is just brilliant!

I was so very tempted to write about this, but I was a little too busy lining up at the magic cave instead.

I never actually joined the queue Tash.

Although I was a bit concerned for my personal safety as the only male present near such a large crowd of man hungry girls :)

Did you get your pic taken with Santa :D

I took my daughter to the city today and the shop is an empty mess. Thanks for taking the time to let the public know you have decided to shut before your advertised date. Your fans are your success and your income, show them the respect they deserve.
