One Direction 2014 Concert Schedule

After winning big at the American Music Awards on Sunday, One Direction are riding their wave of success and have just announced the North American leg of their worldwide “Where We Are” stadium tour. The shows kick off on August 1 at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, ON, followed by stops in Philly (8/13), Chicago (8/29) and New Orleans (9/25).

Over the weekend One Direction took home AMAs for Best Pop/Rock Album and Best Pop/Rock Group. Yesterday (11/25) marked the release of their third studio album, Midnight Memories, which is the fastest-selling album in the Amazon UK’s history. Check out the album’s latest single, “Story of My Life,” below.

One Direction 2013 Concert Schedule

Uber-successful inheritors of the boy-band crown, One Direction have already laid claim to the hottest tickets of 2014: those being sold to their upcoming stadium tour. That’s right, next year the international superstars will make good on their global cache and stop by the largest venues the world has to offer. Their home nation of the UK, as well as Australia, Latin America and (of course!) the United States will all be treated to a much-needed dose of the boys’ particular brand of sexy/cute pop. Basically, One Direction’s latest tour is a big deal (just in case those of you who do not have a tween in your life should have mistakenly thought otherwise).

At this point, just about everybody who’s anybody (with a TV and Internet connection) will have heard the One Direction creation myth, but to briefly recap: The nice British – and one Irish – lads were each individual contestants on the UK X Factor during the show’s 2010 season. Judge Simon Cowell in his infinite wisdom, however, decided Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Stiles, and Louis Tomlinson would all fare better as a group than as the separate vocalist each set out to be, and so banded the boys together as a single act. And so One Direction was born. And so history, and the fantasies of countless teenage girls, was made. Tickets to the boys’ 2014 shows are on sale now – and so what are you waiting for…?!

One Direction Resale Tickets in 2012

American fans have been going crazy for One Direction tickets so far in 2012. Indeed, their entire 2012 tour sold out so quickly that the group decided to make a return US tour in 2013. Let’s take a closer look at how expensive their resale tickets have been. What’s most remarkable about One Direction’s resale prices is how expensive their top shows have been. Their May 26th concert in the Beacon Theater in New York City had an average ticket price of over $526, making it one of the most expensive concerts of the last several years. One Direction’s two other New York City performances also had average resale prices of over $300. One Direction Resale Ticket PricesDespite the shocking prices for these performances, fans at some of One Direction’s other tour stops have found tickets much more affordable. Their February 28th concert in Albany, NY, for example, had an average resale price of only $106. This wide spread in ticket prices, with higher highs and lower lows, is the key difference between resale prices for One Direction and those for Justin Bieber this year. As this chart shows, One Direction’s most expensive concerts have cost significantly more than Bieber’s, but Bieber’s prices are more consistently high on the low end. Overall, the average resale ticket for One Direction in 2012 has cost $201.74, while the average Bieber resale ticket has gone for $212.84.

One Direction Average Ticket Prices

Below are the average prices people spent on One Direction tickets for past/future events. Originally signed by Simon Cowell via the UK show X-Factor (similar to American Idol), One Direction has since gone on to sign with Columbia Records in the US, and as you can tell from the ticket prices below, they have been a near instant success.

  • The demand for One Direction is staggering and impressive for such a young group
