On Nov. 26, 2013, One Direction revealed that it would be supporting its third studio album with a full-fledged, worldwide stadium tour in 2014. The Where We Are Tour is scheduled to stop in more than 20 North American cities, including Foxborough, Mass., where the group will perform two shows at Gillette Stadium beginning with this Aug. 7 concert event. With a collection of hit singles like "Best Song Ever" and "What Makes You Beautiful," the U.K. quintet is sure to offer a one-of-a-kind concert experience in this massive NFL arena.
Gillette Stadium Seating Information
Gillette Stadium will make six separate levels of seating available to One Direction fans. The field level will not only hold the stage, but also a number of floor seats in Sections A1-A6, B1-B5, and C1-C6. Keep in mind that the stage layout is detailed on this event-customized Gillette Stadium seating chart and will feature a lengthy extension that stretches to the middle of Section B3.
Beyond the field is the stadium's Lower Level, where fans can sit in Sections 101-114 and 127-143. One level higher is the Mezzanine, whose Sections 201-205 and 236-240 will be open near the rear of the stadium. The Mezzanine is located next to the Club Level, which holds CL6-CL12 and CL8-CL35. Fans can find seating furthest from the stage in the Upper Level's Sections 301-313 and 328-340. Finally, there are a handful of luxury suites that will be available during the performance.
