One Direction burst onto the scene in 2010 after wowing fans in the United Kingdom on The X Factor. Despite the group failing to win the show, they have easily gone on to having the most successful career from their season of the show. The most amazing fact about their run on the show was the five men that make up One Direction – Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson – had never met, let alone perform together, before the show.
Since the group began headlining their own tours, they have made up for their lack of performances before The X Factor. The “Take Me Home Tour,” which ran from February to November of this year featured 131 dates around the world, introducing the group to new fans. The tour was originally intended to solely be in the United Kingdom and Ireland, allowing the group to play in front of their home countries, but as they continued to gain new fans and ticket demands remained high, the group added dates in new locations.
Tickets for the One Direction “Where We Are” tour will go on sale to the general public on Saturday, December 7th.
