International pop sensation One Direction will perform for their Filipino fans by March 2015. The world-famous English-Irish boy band will hold the Manila leg of their On The Road Again Tour at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds on March 21, 2015.
Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik are gearing up for an epic stadium tour in Australia and Asia including the Philippines in 2015. The group is best known for their chart-topping singles “What Makes You Beautiful,” “Little Things,” and “One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks).”
Last year, 1D released their record-breaking third album, Midnight Memories, which saw them named as the IFPI’s Global Artist of 2013 for becoming the best-selling musical act in the world. They even made music history in America, as they became the first ever band to have their first three albums debut at No.1 in the U.S. Billboard Chart.
The 1D concert is mounted by MMILIVE, Ovation Productions, Futuretainment and other partners. MMILIVE is the same group that organized previous concerts of David Guetta, The Killers, and Bruno Mars.
The members of One Direction were discovered by Simon Cowell on the U.K.’s The X Factor in 2010.
In 2013, the group was featured in a 3D concert movie titled One Direction: This Is Us.
