One Direction fans will be pleased to know that the 2014 stadium tour just got a little bigger and better. The wildly popular British band has created a ticket frenzy around the world after announcing the 2014 tour season, prompting the performers to add a few more shows to the roster for their North American tour. This means that American and Canadian fans may have a greater opportunity to catch a performance.
The 2014 stadium tour was already quite extensive, but the ticket frenzy prompted the group to add performances in East Rutherford, Charlotte, Chicago, Philadelphia, Toronto, Foxboro and Detroit. In addition, they will be performing two additional shows at the Pasadena, California Rose Bowl.
What makes the 2014 stadium tour standout is its sheer size. With these new shows, the number of performances for the band is now greater than the number of stadium shows U2 had in North America during their U2360 tour. The difference between the two tours is that the U2360 tour spanned multiple years, whereas One Direction will pack the performances into just one.
Those planning the tour believe it will be a huge success. When the worldwide tour is finally complete, the band will rank next to The Rolling Stones and U2 in with records for top-grossing tours of all time. Judging from the early demand for tickets, this prediction is likely to be true. For a list of One Direction concert locations and prices visit http://tickget.com/one-
In addition to this lofty accolade, One Direction hopes to use the tour to promote the band’s third studio album, entitled “Midnight Memories.” The album came out in late November through Columbia/Syco Records. “Take Me Home,” the band’s sophomore set, was launched in 2012. It took one of the top spots in the Billboard 200. The album was also featured in the charts in 18 total countries, proving that One Direction is quickly growing into a household name throughout the world.
