Tickets to see One Direction perform at The Sevens Stadium on April 4, 2015 are on sale now.
News of the concert has had pop fans from around the region murmuring with unsuppressed glee since being announced on Monday.
Online ticket sales are available from 10am www.timeouttickets.com and thousands of fans queued from sunrise to get tickets at Virgin Megastore in Dubai.
Love them or hate them, 1D’s world-conquering might is undeniable, with the kind of record sales that bands in today’s download-centric climate can only dream of. Following the release of last year’s Midnight Memories they became the only band ever to debut at number one of the US Billboard charts with their first three albums. And that was just one of 30 countries that LP topped charts in.
Since emerging as X-Factor losers in 2010, the band has picked up four UK Brit Awards and a vast business empire; last year they were declared the second wealthiest musicians in the UK under 30 years of age.
The 30,000-capacity gig will be even larger than Justin Bieber’s two 25,000-capacity shows at the same venue last year – although promoters Done have ruled out a second date so 1D won’t topple troubled Bieber’s UAE crown just yet.
