One Direction

X Factor stars One Direction are set to play a whopping 116 gigs in 19 countries next year.

The boys will be going on a world tour, starting here in the UK with their first ever headlining arena concert.

The live shows will follow the release of their second studio album Take Me Home, which is out later this month.

While the amount of performances is sure to make for a grueling eight months, One Direction are set to earn mega money for their tour.

"It will be hard work, but the boys are really excited about putting on the best show possible for their fans," a source said.

They explained: "They love touring and are totally up for the challenge of embarking on their epic world tour."

Speaking in a recent interview, the group's Harry Styles said: "We're everywhere next year. We start the world tour in London in February and then we're on the road for about eight months of next yer, just touring."

However Niall Horan admitted that he was worried about getting homesick.

"That's the only con of what we do. Not being able to see our friends and family as much," he said.
