There will be more announcements to come very soon though, so if your country isn’t listed don’t despair. These are not all the concert dates.
An official letter given to the press at the announcement said:
“Set to stop in stadiums all around the world, the band kick off in Latin American in April before returning home to the UK and Ireland.”
We repeat “Set to stop in stadiums all around the world.”
Unfortunately, a lot of Directioners took the first set of dates as news that 1D wouldn’t be visiting their country, and as of 1PM GMT today the hashtag #ONEBIGDISAPPOINTMENT was the number one worldwide trending topic.
Harry Styles also tweeted “Rest of the world, keep your ears open”, so things are still looking good for those of you without a confirmed date yet.
Tickets for the UK and Ireland gigs go on sale Saturday 25th May at 10am, whilst tickets for the Latin American concerts go on sale at various dates in June. So you know what means – yep, get your laptops, netbooks, iPads, phones, PC’s and Mac’s at the ready, cos the ticket websites are gonna be on FIRE!
We’ll be continuously updating this page as we get more news today. Here’s a vid we put together with some of the planned stadiums in the tour, though the Italy, Germany, Spain and Tokyo venues are still to be confirmed.
