The Where We Are Tour was the third headlining concert tour by English-Irish boy band One Direction.[1] The concert tour visited stadiums from April through October 2014 with addition to special performances in Las Vegas on 20 September 2014 for the iHeartRadio Music Festival. The concert tour officially kicked off on 25 April 2014 at El Campín Stadium in Bogotá, Colombia and concluded on 5 October 2014 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida. It promoted the band's third studio album, Midnight Memories,[2][3] also announced along with the tour.[4][5][6][7][8] Australian pop/rock band 5 Seconds of Summer served as opening act for UK, European and US tour dates.[9] The tour grossed $290 million in sales after 69 performances with total attendance of 3.4 million. It became the 13th highest grossing concert tour of all time.[10]

Background[edit]

The tour was announced by One Direction during a press conference on 16 May 2013 at Wembley Stadium.[11][12] One Direction raised £600,000 for Stand up to Cancer due to them giving 50p of each ticket sold to the charity.[13] On March 2014, Australian band 5 Seconds of Summer announced they would be the opening act for UK, European and US tour dates.[9]

Commercial performance[edit]

The kickoff-date for the tour in Bogotá sold out all 20,000 tickets in few hours including the additional tickets that promoters made available months after.[14][15]

It was also announced that when the tickets went on sale on May 25, 2013 it sold out in minutes;[16] the same day, additional dates were announced for Dublin, Manchester and London. After a performance on Good Morning America on 26 November 2013, a day after the release of their third studio album, the band announced 21 additional tour dates for North America.[17] Three additional dates were announced on 27 January 2014. More dates are speculated to be announced. The first show was on 25 April 2014 at El Campin Stadium, Bogota, Colombia which has a capacity of 44K which is one of the smallest stadiums One Direction will perform in for the tour.

The band opened Radio 1's Big Weekend in Glasgow at the festival's Main Stage on 24 May before jetting back to Dublin to perform a second show that evening. They also opened up night 2 of the iHeart Radio Music Festival on 20 September, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.[18]
