“Hello, Manila, we’re One Direction and we got some great news for you,” said Niall Horan who spoke first.

“We’re coming to Manila on March the 21st,” added Zayn Malik.

“We think we’ll see you there,” Liam Payne followed.

“See you then,” Horan concluded.

Louis Tomlinson and heartthrob Harry Styles, arguably the most popular member of the vocal group, did not speak.

In the video, the band confirmed that MMI Live, the same group that brought David Guetta, The Killers, and Bruno Mars to Manila, would be bringing One Direction to their Filipino fans.

Given that MMI Live (@mmalive) and its CEO Rhiza Pascua (@itsarpee) tweeted that the original May 7 announcement of the anxiously awaited event was moved to May 19 at 8AM, it looks like the video is not supposed to be made public until that date.

A check with the official web site of MMI Live ( does not include any indication of a One Direction concert, suggesting that all details of 1D’s March 21, 2015 Manila visit will only be released on May 19.

But now that the boys have confirmed that they’re coming, the only questions that fans want answered are where exactly can they see them on that date and how much do they need to save up for the price of admission.

Arguably the world’s biggest musical group, One Direction was proclaimed as “Top New Artist” by music industry bible Billboard magazine in 2012.

Following the release of their third album, “Midnight Memories” in 2013, the group became the first band in the history of Billboard’s Top 200 album charts to have their first three albums debut at number one.

In the UK, their string of hits include three number one singles in “What Makes You Beautiful”, “Little Things” and “One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)”. By Edwin P. Sallan,
