The boys, who finished third on 'The X Factor' season 7, are going to perform live at the MSG in the Big Apple on December 3.
One Direction might not be able to perform at the White House this coming weekend, but they make it up to their fans by announcing a headlining concert at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City. The boys are scheduled to invade the MSG in December.
The gig is promised to be a "massive" one in order to finish off the boyband's "amazing year" throughout 2012. In the first quarter of the year, they have already busted the U.S. charts and became the first U.K. group to ever debut at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 200 at first try, thanks to their album "Up All Night".
In addition to closing their eventful year, the upcoming concert is also held due to overwhelming popular demand of the band's summer tour Stateside. Niall Horan and his bandmates won't hit the road until May 24, but have completely sold out tickets for the upcoming roadshow.
The MSG concert is scheduled to take place on December 3 with tickets going on general sale starting Friday, April 6 at 5 P.M. EST.
