One Direction, the boyband spawned from popular television series the X Factor, have announced a mammoth UK tour for late this year and early 2012.
Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson may have finished third on last year’s show, but could perhaps be the most popular of all the 2010 X Factor contestants.
Now the teen act will perform live to thousands of people across the UK and Ireland on their tour dates in support of their debut album, to be released in November.
The band will play a selection of their own songs “alongside some of their favourite covers and a few surprises,” according to the tour promoters.
One Direction tickets are on sale Saturday October 1st 2011 at 10am.
