Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 31, 2014
Four years have flown by fast since One Direction debuted in 2010 on the U.K. version of X Factor. Now the British-Irish boy band has not only matured, they’ve also achieved a serious taste of their own Beatle-like stardom across the globe.
After performing in South America and Europe as part of their 71-date Where We Are world tour, the band opens the North American leg of their trek at the Rogers Centre in Toronto with a two-nighter. Fellow boy band, Australian pop punk foursome 5 Seconds of Summer is providing support for the 37-date, 25 city swing across the continent.
Next on the schedule are concerts at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Nationals Park in D.C. and Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
In August, gigs are set for Ford Field in Detroit, LP Field in Nashville, NRG Stadium in Houston, AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis and Soldier Field in Chicago before hitting the Rose Bowl in Pasadena on September 11 and 12, 2014.
“One Direction has received a multitude of honors including Brit Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Teen Choice Awards, MTV VMAs and a Moonman for Best Song of the Summer at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, among many others,” said Marta Ault at online discount ticket marketplace BuyAnySeat.com.

One Direction is made up of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. All of the group members hail from the U.K., except for Horan, who is from Ireland. The band played at the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony and made history as the first British group to top the Billboard 200 with a debut album Up All Night.
The track also became 2011's fastest-selling UK debut album. The album's lead single "What Makes You Beautiful” debuted at No. 28 on the Billboard Hot 100. The boys also won Best New Artist, Best Pop Video and Best Share-Worthy Video for the song at the MTV 2012 VMAs.
5 Seconds of Summer, also known as 5SOS, are an Australian pop punk and pop rock band. Formed in Sydney in 2011, the band consists of Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin.
The group started out on YouTube posting videos of themselves covering songs from various artists in 2011. From there, they rose to international fame when One Direction invited them on their Take Me Home Tour.
Earlier this year, they released "She Looks So Perfect," which topped the charts in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and the United Kingdom, while their self-titled debut studio album was just released last month. The group also announced its first North American headline tour, scheduled to start next summer.
As far as this year's tour is concerned, after playing the Rose Bowl on September 11 and 12, both boy bands will travel on to the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on the 16th; Sun Bowl Stadium in El Paso, Texas on the 19th and the IHeartRadio Music Festival on Sept 20, 2014.
Next are shows at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on the 21st; Bank of Oklahoma Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma on the 23rd; Mercedes-Benz SuperDome in New Orleans, Louisiana on the 25th and PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte, North Carolina on the 27th and 28th.
October dates include appearances at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia on the 1st and Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on the 3rd. Currently the North American wrap is set for the Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida on October 5, 2014.
