One Direction to light up Sun Bowl like nobody else

S. David Ramirez

English boy band One Direction will perform at the Sun Bowl on Sept. 19, 2014 as part of the UTEP Centennial.

“We’re trying to join the celebration in the biggest, most exciting way we could possibly do it,” said Jorge Vasquez, UTEP special events executive director.

The El Paso stop, part of their Where We Are 2014 tour, will be sandwiched between appearances in Phoenix and San Antonio.

Vasquez said that he is confident that One Direction will sell out.

The Sunbowl has hosted a variety of large-scale touring act like ‘N SYNC,  but even the Justin Timberlake-fronted group was unable to sell more than 38,000 tickets when they performed in August 2001.

One Direction’s European tour was met with sold out stadiums across the continent and promoters are confident that the tour’s momentum will stay strong as they hop across the pond.

The stage for the performance is designed with the large stadium in mind.  It features three separate structures that ensure everyone will have a good vantage point to see the show.

Tickets go on sale at noon on Saturday, Dec. 7 but Citi Bank card members can take part in a presale starting Nov. 26.

Tickets are available for between $39.50 and $99.50.

For more information or to buy tickets visit or call (800) 745-3000.

His research in popular culture studies has taken him across the nation and he hopes to continue presenting findings on music, media and literature at future conferences. David says his success is due to a pact with the dread Lord Cthlulhu of R’ley fame, but he may just be reading too much H. P. Lovecraft in his off time.
