One Direction Announced Where We are Tour 2014 With Football Kits

Boy band One Direction just announced they were going to embark on a world tour and what better way to kick it off than slipping into an array of different football strips. The group revealed details of the mammoth Where We Are Tour 2014 at a press conference at Wembley Stadium in north London. 

And just after they caused screaming all over the globe, the boys tried on different football strips - just to make sure each fan, whatever the country - to get a glimpse of them in their national team's colours. First up was England of course, with Niall Horan opting for his own country's Irish strip. Each strip represented a nation where the boys will perform on their upcoming tours.
The group, who shot to fame on the X Factor, have become a global phenomenon since their debut single in 2011 and have sold more than 30 million records and DVDs globally and topped the charts in more than 37 countries.

The stadium tour in 2014 will include five UK and Ireland dates and eight in Latin America, according to the One Direction website. The band will play Sunderland's Stadium of Light on April 28, Manchester City's Etihad stadium on April 31, Edinburgh's Murrayfield stadium on June 3 and on June 7 they will perform at Wembley. They will play Dublin's Croke Park on April 25.

The Latin American leg of the tour in April and May will see them visit Brazil (two concerts), Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Paraguay, Chile and Uruguay. The website said more dates would be added soon. One Direction shot to fame after coming third in the 2010 series of the X Factor, where they lost out to singer-songwriter Matt Cardle. But the five-piece have gone on to eclipse the eventual winner, enjoying a string of top 10 singles, recording two hit albums and are now about to release their first film, 1D3D. 

The band - who said they are all big football fans - stressed that further shows on the world tour would be announced at a later date. Horan said: 'We're incredibly excited to announce we're doing a worldwide stadium tour in 2014.
'We're three years into it (being a band), so stepping out to an audience of 65,000 a night is incredible.' 

The announcement comes in the middle of the band's current tour, which will see them play in Switzerland tonight and Germany tomorrow.
Asked about what fans - known as Directioners - can expect next year, Styles said: 'It's important that the fans know it's not the same tour going around again in stadiums. 

'We want to make the stage bigger, with new songs. It's going to be a completely different tour and a lot of fun.'
Fellow band members Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson were also present for the announcement today, visibly excited about the prospect of playing in some of the world's greatest stadiums. 

The band also confirmed plans for a new album, following last year's Take Me Home, to be released later this year.
'One Direction is arguably the biggest boy band ever and fans from around the world will be desperate to get their hands on a ticket to see the boys perform live.'
