MANILA -- Hundreds of One Direction fans have began to camp out at the Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena on Thursday for a chance to be one of the first to land a ticket to the group's concert in March.

Organizers, early in the week, announced that a priority selling event for tickets will be held at the venue for the first 15,000 customers.

"After 2 p.m., tickets will be available in all SM Tickets outlets nationwide or online," Music Management International added.

Britain's most popular boy band, who boasts 19 million followers on Twitter, will be performing in the Philippines for the first time since the group's inception back in 2010.

Their tour, dubbed "On The Road Again," will include different parts of Europe, the United States, the Middle East, and Asia.

Composed of Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik, the band is known for hits such as "What Makes You Beautiful," "Live While We’re Young" and "Story of My Life."
