BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — The hot new boy band One Direction is coming to the Mall of America to sign autographs.

The British quintet will appear in the rotunda of the Bloomington mall on Sunday at 1 p.m.

One Direction just made history this week when their first album, "Up All Night," debuted at the top of the Billboard Top 200 albums chart. They're the first U.K. group to debut at No. 1 with their first album.

Group members will sign 1,200 autographs. Customers who bought the band's debut album on March 13 from Best Buy in Mall of America got a wristband to the autograph signing.

One Direction plans to headline their first North American tour beginning May 24 in Fairfax, Va.
