One Direction Performs on 'GMA', Announces North American Tour Dates
One Direction is set to bring their "Where We Are" tour to North America next year. The British/Irish boyband made the announcement when they visited "Good Morning America" on Tuesday, November 26.
"We're bringing [the tour] to North America," band member Niall Horan told Robin Roberts on the ABC morning show. "We simply can't wait to be back in North America touring and to see our fans. It's going to be absolutely huge!"
The five boys' first North American show will happen at Rogers Center in Toronto on August 1. They will then head to the U.S. and make stops at Washington's Nationals Park, Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field, Houston's Reliant Stadium, Chicago's Soldier Field, Atlanta's Georgia Dome and Miami's Sun Life Stadium among others.
The 21-city tour is being promoted by Live Nation. More dates are going to be announced soon. Tickets go on sale on December 7, with pre-sales on December 3.
In addition to announcing the tour, One Direction delivered live renditions of their "Best Song Ever", "Story of My Life", "What Makes You Beautiful" and "Kiss You". The former two songs were lifted from "Midnight Memories", their newest album which was officially released on November 25. Within 24 hours of its release, it shot to No. 1 in 97 countries around the world.
