There is no way to deny the fact that there are many One Direction fans out there and this news makes this fact even harder to dismiss.
Tickets went on sale for the Ireland/UK dates yesterday, as a part of the 2014 One Direction “Where We Are” tour.
Most of the spots ended up being sold out in just a few minutes.
This left thousands of fans upset as they were not able to get a chance to see the most popular boyband of the moment.
The news did not hit anyone by surprise though, as there were only 5 shows announced, each with just 66,500 tickets available.
A source declared:
If everyone who has searched for a ticket so far were successful, Wembley stadium would be filled 14 times over. One Direction are the most popular boyband on the planet, and following their much-hyped new tour announcement we predict that tickets for the 2014 tour could sell out in as little as 10 minutes.
It seems fans are prepared for a battle to get their hands on tickets, which explains why we have had hundreds of thousands of registrations across our international websites before tickets have even gone on sale.’
The good news is that interested fans do not have to fight for One Direction tickets. Three new tour dates have been added:
- May 24, 2014 – Dublin, Croke Park
- June 1, 2014 – Manchester – Etihad Stadium
- June 8, 2014 – London – Wembley Stadium
Fans are being advised to move fast, the tickets are expected to sell out as fast as the previous 5 shows.
No word yet if the organizers are thinking about adding more dates to the Where We Are One Direction tour in the event that demand remains high.
