The world's biggest pop group are coming to Wales to kick off their 2015 tour.

Following already announced dates in Europe, North America, Asia and South Africa, One Direction will return to the UK & Ireland next autumn – giving fans the chance to see the band perform songs from their brand new album ‘FOUR’ for the first time alongside all their much-loved hits.

After a one-off performance in Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium in June 2015, the boys’ full tour kicks off at London’s The O2 in September and wraps up a month later in Sheffield.

One Direction's new album 'FOUR' is their biggest yet – having hit No.1 on the iTunes chart in 85 countries with sales of over 2 million in just one week.

The five-piece found fame on ITV's talent show The X Factor back in 2010 and have made the history books selling out at gigs all over the world.

Tickets for the concert start at £37.50 and go on sale next weekend.
