With their 2012 tour of the United States completely sold out and commitments lined up for the rest of the year that will keep them from returning, One Direction has gone ahead and scheduled a tour of North American arenas for Summer 2013.
Fans gobbled up tickets to the British boy band’s May/June 2012 tour, as well as its Dec. 3 show at NYC’s Madison Square Garden. The group announced on Thursday that their 2013 world tour will begin a 25-city run in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. on June 13 and will stop in New York City, Chicago, Denver, Montreal and Las Vegas before wrapping up in Los Angeles on Aug. 7.
“Our fans are simply the best in the world,” member Niall Horan says. “The support they have shown us has been incredible and we’re all so grateful to each and every one of them. We can’t wait to see everyone this summer, at Madison Square Garden and of course when we play our world tour in 2013.”
1D recently made chart history by scoring a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart, becoming the first U.K. act to see their debut album start in the top spot. The group — Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry and Louis — performed on “Saturday Night Live” on April 7 and appeared in a recent episode of “iCarly.”
