It’s official: One Direction’s “On The Road Again” tour just got a whole lot bigger.
Even though we’re still mourning the loss of 1D’s Zayn Malik, the pop group’s upcoming North American trek will feature more star power than originally planned. On Monday (June 1), it was announced that Icona Pop will serve as opening act for the summer trek, which will kick off July 9 in San Diego, California, before hitting stadiums across the country.
Icona Pop expressed their excitement for the venture on Twitter, and we’ve got to give it up for them. With only a few hits under their belt, this is a major booking for the electro-pop darlings as they’ll be playing some of their biggest shows of their lives.
Icons! We are so excited to tell you that we are joining One Direction on #OnTheRoadAgain1D presented by Honda Civic Tour! ahhh this is gonna be epic!
If that wasn’t enough, Icona Pop also just finished filming the video for their brand-new bop “Emergency” over the weekend. Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo took to their Instagram to share some behind-the-scenes selfies from the videos. Get ready for loads of make-up and jewelry straight from FKA Twigs’ vanity.
