Dubai's growing reputation for attracting the world's best pop acts will be further strengthened next year when One Direction play at the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens Stadium.

The British-Irish boy band, arguably the biggest pop act in the world, will make their UAE debut on April 4, 2015, with tickets going on sale on May 22.

The gig by band members Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles and Niall Horan will be part of a new tour called On the Road Again Tour 2015.

Concerts have also been announced in 2015 for Manila, Philippines (March 21) and Jakarta, Indonesia (March 25).

The band, which shot to fame on the UK reality show The X Factor in 2010, have released three albums and have sold out shows across the world.

The One Direction announcement comes hot on the heels of news that US singer Lady Gaga will play her first concert in Dubai on September 10.
