One Direction Tickets 2014 The Hottest Property In Pop
21 May 2013
We are all very excited about One Direction tickets 2014 going on sale later this week for their Where We Are World Tour. Seeing the boys claiming the title of ‘Biggest Band in the World’ seems blasphemous to some but there’s no denying Zayn, Liam, Niall, Louis and Harry have taken to the hearts and bedroom walls of the teenage music fans in a way hardly any new emerging music act did in recent memory.
How Big Are One Direction Really?
Where do you set the measure? In terms of ticket sales, the band has sold out all their major arena tours and One Direction tickets for a world tour in 2014, playing stadiums are bound to be this year's hottest property in pop when they go on sale later this week on Saturday, 25th May. This has been a privilege for established rock acts the statue of U2, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney. Not even the mighty men-band, Take That have undertaken on such endeavour!
On the record sales side* the band is just two albums into their career and already sold in excess of 10 million albums, over one million DVDs and in a musical climate where singles no longer play much of a role, the former X Factor losers shifted eight million singles! Quite an achievement!
Up All Night & Take Me Home
Following their participation on the British talent show X Factor, One Direction made their global debut with the multi-Platinum album, Up All Night in November 2011 and followed this up 12 months later in November 2012 with the One Direction album, Take Me Home. One Direction’s second album equaled the success of the first album and proved any doubts wrong that these fresh-faced boys would have a short shelve lives.
One Direction Tickets 2014 - Where We Are Stadium Tour
One Direction’s big announcement last Thursday kept the music world talking, discussing, wondering what the One Direction camp was cooking up.
The big news was, of course, the announcement of the Where We Are One Direction tour 2014 and the on sale news for One Direction tickets 2014. The band revealed dates in the UK and Ireland for May and June 2014 in addition to their first tour through Latin America throughout April and May 2014.
Dublin, Croke Park (Saturday, 24th May 2014)
Sunderland, Stadium of Light (Wednesday, 28th May 2014)
Manchester, Etihad Stadium (Saturday, 31st May 2014)
Edinburgh, Murrayfield Stadium (Tuesday, 3rd June 2014)
London, Wembley Stadium (Saturday, 7th June 2014)
The Web is full with discussions about the Where We Are Tour 2014. Many fans speculate more dates will be added and looking at previous tours, and the forthcoming One Direction arena tour across the US, extra dates have been a necessity for One Direction in the past to supply the never-ending demand of fans trying to see the band live. At the moment the One Direction home page hints at “…another #1BIGANNOUNCEMENT coming soon”.
One Direction’s #1BigAnnouncement
By the time the interactive countdown on the One Direction website announced the Where We Are 2014 stadium world tour, the Web and Social Media sites got swamped with fans spreading the news.
The Twitter hash tag #1BigAnnouncement was posted over 260,000 times. In the US alone, fans re-tweeted the Twitter hash tag over 100,000 times. 12,700+ British One Direction fans announced the biggest tour undertaken by any boyband to their friends, fellow fans, as well as to those who probably would have rather liked One Direction’s big announcement being a farewell message.
One Direction Songs
It seems, at least for the time being, One Direction are here to stay. Intelligent marketing and, let’s be honest, One Direction songs are for the most part pretty listenable little pop gems, put these 5 British teenagers in the lead, ahead in the world of the current crop of popstars; Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Little Mix, The Wanted and Selena Gomez amongst the many other acts that One Direction fans might also listen to but as a complete package only Zayn, Liam, Niall, Louis and Harry have all what it takes.
