The band need a huge entourage

One Direction turned up to their concert in Dallas armed with 20 bodyguards each on Saturday.

The boys are proving so popular in the States that their management have decided to heighten security to protect them from crowds of fans.

Louis Tomlinson, 20, Zayn Malik, 19, plus Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Liam Payne, all 18, performed 4 songs for their 7,000-strong crowd at the Dr Pepper Ballpark.

1D made chart history when they hit No 1 in the US Billboard 200 chart with their album Up All Night last week.

They became the first ever British group to go straight to No 1 in America with their debut album.

‘Dallas baby ! Here we are ! 😀 just had some amazing food out here ! Taco salad is the shit ! 🙂 x aha,’ Tweets Zayn.
