Unless you’ve been living in a very isolated place these last few months, you know that the newest wonder boy band is coming to South Africa.
One Direction will be performing in Johannesburg on 28 and 29 March at FNB Stadium and in Cape Town on 1 April 2015 at Cape Town Stadium and there are a few concert tickets available on bidorbuy.
Known as 1D by adoring fans worldwide, One Direction consists of five young men from Britain (Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik). Their four albums, Up All Night (2011), Take Me Home (2012), Midnight Memories (2013) and Four (2014) topped many charts and generated hit singles such as What Makes You Beautiful, Live While We’re Young, Story of My Life and Steal My Girl. Among many awards they won are four Brit Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards and eleven MTV Europe Music Awards.
So, it’s no wonder that the band is described in superlatives such as: “a global phenomenon”, “iconic”, “the most in-demand performers of today’s generation”, and similar.
One Direction has also made South African history in ticket sales, with the highest amount of tickets sold in the least amount of time. Ever. Tickets went on sale on 23 May 2014… and were sold out in a matter of minutes.
Of course, fans can still get a ticket for one of One Direction South African concerts on bidorbuy or other channels. So, if you count yourself as a fan…
