Both groups will be hitting the road together from February next year, visiting major cities all across the USA, and the tour is proving to be an exciting pull for fans all over with ticket sales rocketing.
When Big Time Rush were asked what they thought about having 1D as their support act, Logan said: “We have a lot to learn about them!”. Another band member Kendal added: “I do know that they have a lot of dedicated fans and everyone in the states is really excited to see them. They’re going to be great to go on tour with.”
Speaking about their own music in particular, BTR commented “We can’t wait to go on the road for our ‘Better With U’ tour,” said Big Time Rush. “We are so excited to perform songs off our new album for our fans.”
The dreamy group visited the UK three times this year with gigs at Manchester Academy and Shepherd’s Bush Empire, with album signings at music stores often packed out.
BTR first rose to prominence in 2009 on a Nickelodeon TV show which has now been renewed for a third season, and tells the tale of four hockey players from Minnesota who are selected to form a boy band.
Comprising of four guys – Kendall Schmidt, Carlos Pena Jr, James Maslow and Logan Henderson – they released their debut album “BTR” in October 2010, and it peaked at number 3 on the US Billboard 200 chart rundown, later going on to be certified gold. Their follow up album “Elevate” was released last month.
So who do you think are better looking? 1D or BTR? Fight, fight, fight!
