With a double platinum album under their belts, Britain's One Direction continues to prove that boy bands can still rake it in: This week, the band's live tour Up All Night DVD topped the Billboard DVD charts in a total of 25 countries — and with 76,000 copies sold in the U.S., it's the first time a concert DVD has outsold the country's top-ranked album (in this case, John Mayer's Born and Raised.)
