(2014)

The Take Me Home Tour[1][2] was the second headlining concert tour by English-Irish boy band One Direction.[3][4] Announced by member Liam Payne at the 2012 BRIT Awards in early 2012, the original concert tour was billed as the UK & Ireland Arena Tour. In mid-2012, the concert tour expanded with legs in North America and Australia following the band's international breakthrough. The concert tour visited arenas and stadiums from February through November 2013. The concert tour commenced at London's O2 Arena on 23 February 2013.

The Take Me Home Tour was commercially successful, with sold-out shows and demand for tickets prompting organisers to add more dates to the itinerary. The concert tour consisted of over 100 shows in Australia, Asia, Europe, and North America. In the UK and Ireland, ticket sales reached 300,000 within a day of release, which included a six-date sell out at the O2 Arena in London. In Australian and New Zealand markets, tickets grossed US$15.7 million, with all 190,000 tickets being sold for eighteen shows held in Australia and New Zealand

On 21 February 2012, One Direction attended the 2012 BRIT Awards at which they received the Best British Single award for their debut single "What Makes You Beautiful".[5] During One Direction's acceptance speech, member Liam Payne stated that they would embark on their first arena concert tour.[6] Reports soon followed that the tour would consist of fifteen dates across the UK and Ireland.[7][8] One Direction's official website confirmed the dates, with tickets to be made available on 25 February.[9]

On 12 April 2012, the group announced the North American leg as a part of a '2013 World Tour'. The North American leg is set to begin a 25-city run in Sunrise, Florida on 13 June 2013 and is set to stop in Toronto, Chicago, Denver, Montreal and Las Vegas before wrapping up in Los Angeles on 7 August. Tickets for the North American leg of the concert series went on sale 21 April 2012, at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.[10][11] Group member Niall Horan said in a statement released to MTV News, "Our fans are simply the best in the world. 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."[11]

On 18 April 2012, the Australasian leg was announced.[12] The leg is set to commenced in Brisbane on 13 September 2013 and visited Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide before heading west to Perth. The tour then returned to the east coast for five additional shows before travelling to New Zealand for three shows. Tickets for the Australasian leg went on sale on 28 April 2012, except for the Perth dates, which went on sale on 28 June.[13]

In June 2012, continental European dates were reported to be in the process of being added and were confirmed on 29 October 2012.[14][15] The continental European dates compromises of shows in France, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Portugal and Denmark in April and May 2013. Tickets went on sale between 2 and 5 November 2012, depending on the venue.[15]

Commercial reception[edit]

Having initially announced 15 shows across the UK and Ireland, the group added extra shows around the UK and Ireland due to high demand, which included matinée performances at various dates. One Direction announced the extra shows on their Twitter page throughout the morning after the initial dates went on sale. British ticket sales reached 300,000 within a day of release. The original dates sold out within minutes—with 1,000 tickets selling per minute, with two or three extra dates having been added at each city. Notable dates that sold out include six dates at The O2 Arena in London, while four dates at The O2 in Dublin also sold out within an hour—as did four Belfast Odyssey Arena dates.[16][17] In North America, the group added additional shows due to "overwhelming demand". The tickets for the added shows went on sale in May 2012.[18] In Australia and New Zealand, tickets also ignited commercial success pulling sales of US$15.7million, with all 190,000 tickets being sold for eighteen shows to be held in Australia and New Zealand from September 2013.[19] Tickets for the Perth shows, which went on sale later than the rest of Australia, sold out in six minutes.[20]

In May 2012, as One Direction added more dates to their 2013 World Tour, Andy Greene, associate editor of Rolling Stone magazine, declared that the boy band are "being worked like dogs". The Daily Star Sunday revealed that many of their shows planned for 2013 had sold out and that they were adding an extra 25 performances in 20 US cities, some of which priced at more than £200 for one ticket. The article additionally noted that "One Direction could eclipse the big tour ­megabucks earned by rock giants U2 and The Rolling Stones". Greene ultimately declared: "I've never known a band announce a second summer tour before a first summer tour is over. It’s insane – they're working them like dogs and printing money right now".[21]

In July 2013, the tour ranked 12th on Pollstar's annual "Top 100 Mid Year Worldwide Tours". It earned $49.6 million from 68 shows.[22][1]

On 29 October 2013, it was announced that the band's tour broke the record for shifting 81,542 tickets. The previous record was held by Metallica with 74,244. The execs of the arena awarded to each member a "gold microphone" and unveiled the first entertainer's "Star" in the Sydney Olympic Park precinct.[23]
