Last week, global superstars One Direction announced the highly anticipated dates for the North America leg of their worldwide WHERE WE ARE 2014 stadium tour with a special performance live from Central Park on ABC's "Good Morning America." Due to an overwhelming response for tickets, an additional show at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium has been added on Aug. 5.
It's been a phenomenal week for One Direction as they took home two awards at the 2013 American Music Awards, including Best Pop/Rock Album and Best Pop/Rock Group, and released their third studio album, MIDNIGHT MEMORIES, which immediately shot to No. 1 in 97 countries around the world.
The 21-city tour, promoted by Live Nation and presented by Nabisco, the makers of OREO, RITZ and HONEY MAID, kicks off on Aug. 1, 2014, in Toronto at Rogers Centre and includes stops in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Dallas and Miami as well as at MetLife Stadium, with additional dates to be announced.
