Boy band One Direction are to kick off their first-ever international stadium tour with a gig at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light on 28th May 2014 as part of their Where We Are world tour. Tickets go on sale from next Saturday 25th May 2013.
Sunderland’s Stadium of Light is one of only four UK venue’s to host the boys, the others are Manchester’s Ethiad Stadium, Murrayfield in Edinburgh and Wembley Stadium, London.
Their gig, which marks a great coup for the Stadium of Light, could well be the fastest-selling ever there, following the likes of Take That, Coldplay, Kings of Leon and Pink, who have already played there, with Rihanna, Bon Jovi and North East Live set to take the venue by storm this summer.
One Direction, who have sold over 14 million singles and 8 million albums, have already amassed two BRIT Awards and three MTV Video Music Awards in their fledgling career. They achieved instant success in the UK following on from their stint on X Factor in 2010, the group also took the US by storm, with their last album debuting at number one in the Billboard 200, becoming the first boy band in US chart history to land two number one albums in a calendar year.
Tickets for what is anticipated to be the biggest concert ever staged at the Stadium of Light, will go on sale from 10am on Saturday 25th May 2013 and are priced from £42.50 (plus booking fee). You can buy them online here.
