Be in attendance for this must-see show when the international sensation One Direction takes over the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Sept. 25. The quintet has planned a lengthy North American leg for the 2014 Where We Are World Tour, which will be hitting up major stadiums from at least August-October, with overseas shows set to begin in May.
Mercedes-Benz Superdome Seating Information
As you'll see on the Mercedes-Benz Superdome seating chart on this page, the stage for the One Direction concert will be positioned on the field in front of Sections 124-132. As a result, most standard seating areas that would have obstructed views behind the stage will be closed off for the performance, though some suites may still be offered.
In addition to regular Superdome seating at the 100-500 Levels, floor seating also will be staged on the field and will offer some of the closest views to One Direction during its performance. Floor Sections A-F comprises the first set near the stage, followed by G-M, and finally N-U. Note that a catwalk extends out from the middle of the stage and cuts through Sections C-D and H-K.
Mercedes-Benz Superdome General Information
Expect typical security policies to be in place for the One Direction concert. Smoking, including e-cigarettes, is generally only allowed in the Plaza Level exterior areas at Gates B, D, F and H. All visitors and bags are subject to search. Various prohibited items include outside food and drink, containers, glass bottles, laser pointers, video and audio recording devices, and large backpacks.
Mercedes-Benz Superdome Parking Information
Ample parking is available for those wishing to drive to the One Direction show at the Superdome. The stadium boasts roughly 7,000 spaces across seven garages and other surface lots in close proximity to the venue. All parking is usually cash only. As is the case with most sites, overnight parking and re-entry is not permitted. Tailgating also is generally prohibited for concerts.
Mercedes-Benz Superdome Gate Times
Mercedes-Benz Superdome gates generally open two hours before the start of an event, but an exact time may be available closer to the date of the concert.
