One Direction announced at a press conference at Wembley Stadium today that they are to embark on a 2014 stadium tour! The boyband, who are currently flying back to Switzerland to continue their ‘Take Me Home’ tour, will play some of the biggest arenas in the world next year, in a tour supporting their upcoming third studio album.
Although the boys’ excitement is clearly indicated via their individual twitters, Directioners have taken to their own social networks, and seem to be less than enthusiastic! #ONEBIGDISAPPOINTMENT became a trending topic shortly after the band’s press conference, with fans expressing frustration that the ‘Where We Are’ tour is not coming to their country, or that the announcement which has been hyped up for six days was not as exciting as expected!
When talking about their third album recently, which is due to be released later this year, the band, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne specifically, have said it has a “rockier and edgier” feel to it.One Direction also have a 3D movie, This Is Us, due out at the end of August this year – do these boys ever stop?
When discussing the ‘Where We Are’ tour at today’s press conference, Niall Horan said, “we are ecstatic… we have only been a band for three years and we’re already doing stadiums – including Wembley,” with Payne adding “I think it would be quite interesting to sing a song in Spanish. Niall can sing The Lion King in Spanish!” Harry Styles made sure to differentiate this new tour from their previous concerts, saying, “It’s important the fans and everyone who comes to see the show know it’s going to be much bigger and new songs. A completely different tour”
You can check out the thirteen dates that have been revealed so far, but remember the boys have promised there are more to come across the globe!
