One Direction, the hyper-platinum warlords of planet tween, embark on a North American tour in 2014 that stops at the Superdome on Sept. 25.
The 2014 Where We Are Tour — sponsored by Nabisco — kicks off in August, and tickets go on sale Dec. 7. Starting Dec. 3, fans can access tickets via Facebook.
The group — whose names resemble those of Dune characters (Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne) or Labour party members (Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson) — released its third album Midnight Memories this week, following the international success of 2012's Take Me Home and 2011's Up All Night, as well as countless awards (most recently best album and best group at the 2013 American Music Awards), a movie in 3D, and few if any controversies involving peeing in buckets or grinding on Robin Thicke. One Direction also will perform on Saturday Night Live on NBC Dec. 7.
