One Direction sets 2014 Charlotte date

Hot on the heels of its new album, "Midnight Memories," hitting No. 1 in a whopping 97 countries, the superstar British boy band announces its 2014 North American Tour dates. The group hits Charlotte's recently renamed PNC Music Pavilion (formerly Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre) September 27.

Tickets go on sale Dec. 7 at www.livenation.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, by calling 1-800-745-3000, or at the PNC Music Pavilion box office. Presale opportunities are available to Citi card members through its Private Pass Program starting today. Visit www.citiprivatepass.com for details. Another presale option will be available for those that sign up for a Facebook RSVP here. That presale starts Dec. 3.

The North American leg of the global Where We Are 2014 Tour currently kicks off in Toronto Aug. 1 and ends in Miami Oct.5, but expect additional dates to be announced.

Can't wait until September? One Direction appears on the Dec. 7 episode of "Saturday Night Live" as well as on The CW's iHeartRadio "Midnight Memories" release party Dec. 9 (with an encore airing Christmas night).
