A 30-second preview of its "More than This" performance premiered on the CBS entertainment television news show Entertainment Tonight on 9 May. The entire "More than This" performance debuted on YouTube on 11 May, with MTV News editor Jocelyn Vena suggesting that fans would appreciate the recording's sequences. The video album was released on DVD and Blu-ray on 28 May, by Syco Music and Columbia Records. One Direction held a global Twitter viewing party for Up All Night: The Live Tour on 31 May. Utilising the hashtag #1DVDWatchParty, fans had the opportunity to talk to the band directly on Twitter as the group's members and fans watched the recording simultaneously.
Up All Night: The Live Tour garnered positive commentary and global success, having topped the charts in twenty-five countries and selling one million copies by August 2012. A Yahoo! contributor favoured the concert's acoustic performances as showcasing the members' individual tones and vocal prowess. Joanne Dorken, writing for MTV News, praised the group's stage presence and the content itself as having "all the thrills and spills you would expect from a 1D concert". She additionally deemed it "a must have for any Directioner", a One Direction fan, as it gives "an up-close-and-personal insight into the world" of the boy band.  An editor for Sugarscape shared Dorken's sentiments and summarised it as "all good fun", but was dismayed by the choreography in the "What Makes You Beautiful" performance. The recording reached number six on the United Kingdom's Official Video Chart, and had sold 61,000 units in the United Kingdom by 2 August 2012. In Australia, it debuted at number one on the ARIA DVD chart and was certified six times platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) for shipments of 90,000 units in its first week of sale. The recording was ultimately certified nine times platinum in Australia for shipments of 135,000 units.
In the United States, Up All Night: The Live Tour debuted at number one on Billboard's Top Music Videos chart with first-week sales of 76,000 copies, surpassing sales of the Billboard 200 number one album, John Mayer's Born and Raised, which sold 65,000 copies. One Direction made US chart history as the feat marks the first time a music DVD had outsold the Billboard 200 number one album. Its opening figure also makes it the highest music DVD debut of 2012 and the second highest debut in the past five years behind Adele's Live at the Royal Albert Hall, which launched at number one in December 2011, with 96,000 copies. In the week ending 27 January 2013, Up All Night: The Live Tour claimed its 30th week on top of the Top Music Videos Chart, which is longer than any other title since the chart originated in March 1995.
