One Direction announce Wembley Stadium concert

Boyband confirm they will headline Capital FM's Summertime Ball on June 6

One Direction have confirmed they will be appearing at Capital FM’s Summertime Ball in the summer.

The boyband will be appearing at Wembley Stadium on June 6. Tickets for the concert will go on sale from 8am on Friday May 1. For more information go to Capitalfm.com.

Singer Liam Payne told the station: “Wembley is obviously one of the best places to play in the world, so I’m well excited.”

The announcement comes after Stephen Hawking suggested that there could be an alternate universe where recently-departed member Zayn Malik is still in the boy band.

Malik left the pop group in March due to stress induced by press speculation over his love life.

Despite the band continuing without Malik and recently announcing that they’re starting work on their next album, many fans remain distraught over Malik’s departure. However, Hawking has told them not to worry at a lecture at the Sydney Opera House.

With one member of the crowd asking “What do you think is the cosmological effect of Zayn leaving One Direction and consequently breaking the hearts of millions of teenage girls across the world?”, the famed scientist responded by joking “Finally, a question about something important”.

Hawking continued: “My advice to any heartbroken young girl is to pay close attention to the study of theoretical physics, because one day there may well be proof of multiple universes. It would not be beyond the realms of possibility that somewhere outside of our own universe lies another different universe. And in that universe, Zayn is still in One Direction.”

“This girl [in the audience] may like to know that in another possible universe, she and Zayn are happily married,” he added.
