New York City was basically shut down on Nov. 26, as the boys of One Direction took over Central Park. However, before performing, they shared super exciting news with their fans!
One Direction fans didn’t let the cold weather keep them inside! Hundreds gathered to see the boys, and then got even more excited when Niall Horan announced that their tour was coming to North America — and that tickets will be on sale soon!
One Direction Announces Tour, Performs On ‘GMA’
Swoon! We were going absolutely crazy (like always) when Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayne Malik, Liam Payne, and Niall sat down for their interview with Robin Roberts.
They had to share the huge news that they are officially going on tour! Niall made the announcement about their “Where We Are” tour and we couldn’t be more excited! Their first show is August 1 in Toronto, and tickets go on sale on December 7 — so set an alarm!
After the news, they boys took the stage to perform their two huge hits off Midnight Memories, starting with “Best Song Ever,” followed by “Story of My Life.”
Later, they performed their older song “What Makes You Beautiful” — well, we think they were singing; you could barely hear it over the girls screaming!
One Direction’s ‘Midnight Memories’ Hits Stories
The band’s third album officially hit stores on Nov. 25, and got quite the positive reaction. We’d already told you how much we love Midnight Memories, when it leaked on Nov. 18. The boys all worked extremely hard to get the album done — and that meant very little sleeping!
“I’m a night owl, so the late-night recordings don’t really bother me — as long as I can sleep in late!” Zayne told Billboard.com in a new interview.
“I don’t think it’s that hard to stay focused,” Harry added in. “We get to go to amazing places and work with great people, it’s just really fun!”
For Niall, he admitted that at times he does get homesick, and that’s what their song “Don’t Forget Where You Belong” is about. “Luckily, I have my four best mates on the road with me to keep me from getting lonely,” he says. “Of course we all miss home at times. Who wouldn’t, being on the road all year long? Wouldn’t give it up for anything though.”
So, HollywoodLifers — will you buy tickets?
