One Direction announced their “Where We Are” North American tour dates Tuesday morning, including a Chicago stop at Soldier Field scheduled for August 29, 2014.

The boy band, which formed in 2010, announced the North American leg of the tour on Tuesday, at a special “Good Morning America” Central Park concert. Tickets for the 21-city tour, which kicks off on August 1, 2014, in Toronto, go on sale at 10 a.m. on Saturday, December 7.

“Midnight Memories,” One Direction’s third studio album, which was released on Monday to mostly-positive reviews, has already hit No. 1 in 97 countries. With their previous two albums (2011’s “Up All Night” and 2012’s “Take Me Home”) the boys have sold 35 million records worldwide.

The group took home two American Music Awards on Sunday for Best Pop/Rock Album and Best Pop/Rock Group, and will be making an appearance as the musical guest on the December 7 episode of Saturday Night Live.

Early ticket sales for the “Where We Are” North American tour start Tuesday, December 3. Fans can get access to early ticket sales by signing up for a Facebook RSVP. The tour will also make stops in several other major cities, including Nashville, Dallas, St. Louis and Atlanta.
