One Direction's First Performance Of "Drag Me Down"

The guys of One Direction wasted no time promoting their new single.

Releasing their new single “Drag Me Down” wasn’t the only surprise One Direction had up their sleeve. The same day the world’s most famous boy band released their new single unannounced on iTunes, the guys performed it at their show in Indianapolis on Friday. The crowd of screaming girls went nuts when the band began the initial cords, illustrating why it’s the fastest climbing song to No. 1 on the iTunes chart ever.

“We wanted to surprise everyone with the whole single just dropping,” band member Niall Horan told the crowd. “And that’s exactly what we did tonight here with you.”
