Rumours circling around the internet world suggest that 1D’s 1BIGANNOUNCEMENT on Thursday May 16th will be a huge stadium tour to take place next year.
So far in their short career, the lads have performed at big arenas in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada and many other countries in Europe.
Most of these concerts have the capacity for between 10,000 to 20,000 people, and venues such as London’s O2 Arena, the American Airlines Center in Dallas and the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne have proved brilliant choices so far.
However, there’s just so many people who want to get One Direction tickets that there simply isn’t enough to go round.
But what if the boys decided to perform at venues such as Wembley Stadium in London with a capacity of 92,000, or perhaps Melbourne Cricket Ground which can hold over 100,000?
There’s a big number of US venues such as the Giants Stadium in New Jersey, the Silverdome in Michigan and many many more.
The main benefit is that 1D wouldn’t have to perform as many dates as the current ‘Take Me Home Tour’, but they could visit more countries than before, giving more fans a chance to see them live.
Stadium tours are only possible for the biggest acts around though. Think Rolling Stones, U2, Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi, Coldplay and the like. And it now seems that One Direction are firmly in this category.
So how likely is it that a new stadium tour might be announced?
After such a gruelling schedule this year, we can’t imagine the same thing happening again next year, but the boys could certainly fly to 10-20 countries around the world next year in the space of a few months.
Fans in Japan, India, South Africa, Brazil and others might just get a chance to meet their heroes.
With the new album being released this November and the movie in August, 1D mania would certainly be at its highest lever ever, and here at One Direction News we’ll definitely be trying to get our hands on tickets!
We’re certainly keeping our fingers crossed that a One Direction stadium tour is the 1BigAnnouncement.
