Where We Are is One Direction’s third headlining tour. The tour name was revealed on 16 May 2013 after an official 7 day countdown. It is a worldwide stadium tour.
In the 7 days prior to the day, much speculation was conjured up by the press and by the fans with the use of the hastag #1BIGANNOUNCMENT and also a dedicated webpage with a countdown on it. Niall Horan tweeted many times about how excited he was and so did fellow band member Liam Payne.
The tour was announced at a press conference in Wembley Stadium on May 16, 2013, that the boys would be going on a stadium world tour in 2014. They released the first 13 dates in total – 8 dates for Latin America, 1 for Ireland and 4 for the United Kingdom- on the page along with another message that there is another #1BIGANNOUNCMENT “coming soon!” Later on they added 2 more dates for Latin America, 1 for Ireland and 2 for the United Kingdom.
Several months after, more dates for the UK and 10 dates for the rest of Europe were announced on September 19, 2013. The and Europeian tickets (including the extra UK, Ireland dates) went on sale on the 28th of September at 10am.
Niall made the official announcement, stating “We are doing a worldwide stadium tour. We will be touring in Latin America first then UK and Ireland. We are ecstatic. We have only been a band for three years and we’re already doing stadiums – including Wembley.”
“It’s important that the fans know it’s not the same tour going around again in the stadium. We want to make the stage bigger, with new songs. It’s going to be a completely different tour and a lot of fun” Harry said during the press conference.
Louis also confirmed that a new album will be released by the end of the year in time for the stadium tour. He said it would have more of a rock-ier tone to it, this was confirmed a few moths later with the announcement of Midnight Memories.
Niall tweeted later on after the press conference. “Keep your eyes peeled! Please don’t be disappointed if your country wasn’t announced! We will be announcing more over the year!” then tweeted later, “We are a family! We stick together forever! Love you all! Best fans on the planet.”
