The European invasion is less than a year away! One Direction will kick off the North American leg of their Where We Are tour on Aug. 1, 2014, the boy band announced on Tuesday, Nov. 26. The concert series kicks off at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, and continues until Oct. 5, when 1D wraps things up at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida.
"We simply can't wait to be back in North America touring and to see our fans," Niall Horan says on behalf of fellow band members Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. "It's going to be absolutely huge!"
