Global superstars One Direction today announced additional dates for the highly anticipated ON THE ROAD AGAIN 2015 stadium tour, which will see the band perform in Australia, Japan and South East Asia in support their new album FOUR (to be released Nov. 17). The North American tour, promoted by Live Nation, kicks off on July 9, 2015 at the Qualcomm stadium in San Diego, Cali. The full 17-city North American tour includes stops in East Rutherford, Chicago, Boston, Detroit and Seattle, amongst others.
One Direction is, by many measures, the most popular band on the planet. The group has managed to sell nearly 50 million albums and score several hit singles during its four-year career. One Direction’s latest studio effort, “Midnight Memories,” was the best-selling album of last year. It’s also a social media juggernaut. One Direction has approximately 21 million followers on Twitter, which is by far the most of any band — No. 2 is Coldplay with just over 13 million followers.
