One Direction returning to Ford Field
One Direction liked its visit to Ford Field so much that the lads are coming back for more.
The British boy band will perform at the Lions’ home on Aug. 29, promoters announced Thursday. Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 1, and if the past is any indication, they’ll go quickly.
The announcement comes as the group is readying the release of its fourth album in four years, the aptly titled “Four.” The set hits stores Nov. 17, and the Journey by-way-of New Kids on the Block first single “Steal My Girl” is already in heavy rotation on your daughter’s iPod.
The group hit Ford Field for sold-out back-to-back concerts at Ford Field Aug. 16 and 17. There is a one day buffer on either side of next year’s date — they’re in Cleveland Aug. 27 and in Philly Sept. 1 — so while it’s tight, there’s room for an additional show to get added should the market demand it.
One Direction’s 2015 North American tour launches July 9 in San Diego and wraps Sept. 12 in Boston.
