Harry Styles may be feeling a bit down in the dumps since his split from Taylor Swift but there is one good thing to come out of the break-up- ticket sales for One Direction's world tour have reportedly seen a 50% increase since the news broke!
According to Seatwave, the online ticket marketplace, ticket sales and exchanges for the band's upcoming tour have experienced a huge surge in popularity over the past 24 hours as news of the Haylor split spread.
It seems the news that Harry is free and single again is attracting the fans. Meanwhile, interestingly Taylor's own ticket sales have halved according to the site.

“1D and Taylor Swift are two of the most popular acts in the world and they’re consistently among our best-sellers,” says Louise Mullock, spokesperson for Seatwave.
“However, the adulation received by 1D is one of a kind, and the boys’ fans are famously protective. Since many of Taylor’s fans are also 1D fans, she may have bitten off more than she can chew by dividing their loyalties.”
Harry was spotted returning to work today, arriving at a North London rehearsal space to start work on the band's mammoth sell out world tour.
The star is back to the day job, days after a reported bust up between him and Taylor whilst they were holidaying in the British Virgin Islands.
