On Aug. 11, the nation's capital will play host to one of the world's biggest music acts when the boys of One Direction take the stage at Nationals Park. Though normally home to baseball's Washington Nationals, the ballpark will transform into a premier concert venue for this highly anticipated stop on the massive Where We Are World Tour.
Nationals Park Seating Information
The stage for this One Direction Washington, DC show will be stationed in center field, with the familiar catwalk expected to be constructed for this performance and positioned through the middle of field seating. Those interested in sitting near the stage can check out the Field sections, which are comprised of 18 different areas of seating throughout the outfield. The rest of the venue's traditional 100-400 Level seating will be available for the concert, though note that areas behind the stage will be closed off due to obstructed views. Suites and parking passes for the One Direction performance may also be available for purchase while supplies last.
