MANILA – Nearly a month after rumors of a One Direction concert in Manila made the rounds online, SM Tickets announced that the popular boy band will indeed perform here for the first time next year.

On its website and social media accounts, SM Tickets said One Direction will hold a concert at the Mall of Asia Grounds on March 21, 2015.

Tickets will be sold at the Mall of Asia Arena on Friday, May 23, to the first 15,000 customers arriving at the venue.

“After 2 p.m., tickets will be available in all SM Tickets outlets nationwide and through our website,” SM Tickets said in a Facebook post on Monday.

Tickets to One Direction’s Manila concert cost between P1,150 and P17,950 each.

One Direction is set to perform in different parts of Europe in May and June, and in the United States from July to October.

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.”
