One Direction's 'Where We Are' tour passes $200 million profit barrier

One Direction have become the first artist to make $200 million in ticket sales revenue in 2014. 

The boyband's 'Where We Are' tour, which is in support of their new album Midnight Memories (which you can preview on the right-hand side of the page), has now grossed over $230 million in ticket revenue, with over 2.7 million tickets sold at 53 live shows across the globe, reports Billboard. 

The tour began earlier this year and included three sold out shows at London's Wembley Stadium, Manchester's Etihad Stadium and sold out shows in Sunderland, Edinburgh and Dublin. 

Earlier this summer, One Direction announced that they will release a new concert film titled Where We Are. The concert was filmed during the band's live show earlier this year at Milan's San Siro Stadium in Italy and will be in cinemas across the weekend of October 11th and 12th. 

The film will be released on DVD on December 1st. Where We Are: The Concert Film will be executive produced by Simon Cowell and made by the same production team behind the band's previous documentary film This Is Us, which grossed over $67 million worldwide. 

The band are currently working on their new studio album.
