Philippine News, Manila – British Boy Band One Direction have announced that they will be coming to the Philippines next year.
It’s been announced that Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan are set to come to Manila on 21st March 2015.
The announcement comes as something of a surprise as the big revelation to Filipino fans wasn’t supposed to happen until next week.
The X Factor stars, currently touring in South America, haven’t yet confirmed whether they’ll be performing at one or more concert venues, or just doing a promo tour. It’s expected that the full details will be revealed next week, as they originally scheduled, on May 19th.
One way or another, they are sure to draw crowds of enthusiastic Filipinos wherever they go!
UPDATE 11th May –
The video, in which 1D made the announcement, was taken off-line by the band’s management company over the weekend, claiming that it was an ‘unofficial release’. However, they were careful to avoid denying that the content of the video was accurate.
The VBP Entertainment News Team believe that there are no accidents in the world of publicity management and this ‘leak’ is likely to have been carefully stage managed. Oscar Wilde once said that, “There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.” The video has certainly caused 1D’s fans in Philippines to be talking about this and social media sites have been flooded with rumors.
However, there is still no confirmation on whether they’ll be performing or just doing a promo tour in March. This is likely to be revealed in the ‘official’ announcement, on May 19th.
