The British boy band who's already won the hearts of millions around the world is back — with a U.S. tour! One Direction has announced they'll be embarking on a stadium tour come summer 2014. The news comes just after the release of their latest album, "Midnight Memories," which features their newest single, "Story of My Life."
Mark your calendars with the 2014 schedule for the 1D U.S. tour, featured below. Click here for more information on tickets and upcoming tour dates.
For all of the controversy that Miley Cyrus has generated in the past few months, it seems like her upcoming Bangerz Tour is destined to be a bust, right? That, at least, is the impression one might get from the media and disgusted-sounding Facebook and Twitter comments after the overtly sexual performance with Robin Thicke and the "Wrecking Ball" music video. Is Miley's brand of edgy too edgy for fans, or more likely, their ticket buying parents?
Apparently not, because those fans and/or their parents are snapping up tickets for the tour in a big way.
This weekend at TicketNetwork.com, Cyrus' shows were the second biggest ticket seller, beaten out only by Trans-Siberian Orchestra*. Digging deeper, the Bangerz Tour made up 15% of all concerts tickets sold at TN.com during the weekend. The top concert event, again TSO, made up 19%. On the other side, tickets for the next biggest concert performer after Cyrus, Cher, made up just 4%.
Hot off of the announcement that he'd been selected as one of GQ's Men of the Year, Justin Timberlake announced this morning that he'd extend his 20/20 Experience World Tour with several additional 2014 summer dates.
Timberlake began the 20/20 Experience World Tour Nov. 6. He'll visit cities across North America through March 2014, when he'll head overseas for a brief European leg. In July 2014, Timberlake will return to North America for 14 shows.
For a full schedule of the newly added U.S. dates, see below. Presales for this leg of the tour start tomorrow, Nov. 13.
It's official: Miley Cyrus will launch her U.S. tour for "Bangerz" in February 2014. The "Wrecking Ball" singer gained significant popularity following her video music award performance earlier this year. Since then, she has performed at the iHeartRadio Music Festival Village and will be one of the headlining acts at eight upcoming Jingle Ball shows.
The tour kicks off on Valentine's Day and hits cities like New York City; Los Angeles; Chicago; Washington, D.C.; and Miami. It follows the release of her "Bangerz" album, which reached number 1 on the Billboard Top 200; it went on to become number 1 on iTunes in more than 70 countries.

Kanye West is the latest artist to announce some of his tour dates will need to be postponed. The Yeezus tour, which was scheduled to stop in Vancouver, B.C.; Denver, CO; and Minneapolis, MN. These three dates have now been postponed, due to the damage of a 60-foot LED screen used during his shows.
The equipment was damaged in an accident on Oct. 31, when West was scheduled to perform in Vancouver. According to a press release on his site:
Yesterday, on the road to Vancouver, a truck carrying The Yeezus Tour’s custom-made video truss and 60-ft circular LED screen was in an accident that damaged the gear beyond repair.
This gear is central to the staging of The Yeezus Tour, and central to the creative vision put forth by Kanye West and his design team at DONDA.
As a result of this event, it is impossible to put on the show and some of the shows on The Yeezus Tour will be postponed until these essential pieces can be reengineered and refabricated.
Kanye West will not compromise on bringing the show, as it was originally envisioned and designed, to his fans.
The Vancouver, Denver and Minneapolis dates have been postponed. Further details on the affected tour dates will be announced shortly.
Earlier this month, West had to re-schedule his Vancouver date from Oct. 20 to Oct. 31. The original show was cancelled due to "unforeseen circumstances."
West's tour is scheduled to resume Nov. 7 in Chicago, IL. No word yet on when his Vancouver, Denver, and Minneapolis shows will be rescheduled.
