One Direction, the world’s biggest pop band - featuring Doncaster’s own Louis Tomlinson - will play two dates next year at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena, writes Graham Walker.

Their On The Road Again Tour 2015 will bring Louis back home to South Yorkshire on Thursday and Friday, October 29 and 30.

The nights will also mark the end of their 18 date UK and Ireland tour.

Tickets - which will be priced £71.50, £52.25 & £43.45, including fees - go on sale on Saturday, December 6, 9am.

At the promoters request no tickets for this tour will be on sale in person from the venue.

The Arena will only be selling its allocation of tickets for this event online at www.motorpointarenasheffield.co.uk or through the ticket hotline on 0114 256 5656.

The brand new tour follows already announced dates in Europe, North America, Asia and South Africa.

It will give fans the chance, for the first time, to see the band perform songs from their brand new album, FOUR, alongside all their much-loved hits.

After a one-off performance in Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium in June 2015, the boys’ full tour kicks off at London’s The O2 in September and wraps up a month later with the two shows in Sheffield.

FOUR is their biggest yet, having topped the number one spot on the iTunes chart in 85 countries, with sales of over 2 million in just one week.

The album has also seen them make history by becoming the first ever act to debut at the top of the US Billboard charts with each of their first four albums.
