'Where We Are' run heads to the U.S. next August.

One Direction shared the first tour dates of their 2014 Where We Are stadium tour way back in May, when the boy band plotted some shows in South America and in the U.K. On Tuesday (Nov. 26), the 1D boys finally announced the North American leg of the trek, which kicks off on Aug. 1, 2014 in Toronto.

The 21-city run was announced live on "Good Morning America" on Tuesday morning, and will be presented by Nabisco. One Direction performed their latest single, "Story of My Life," on the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday night on the eve of the release of their third studio album, "Midnight Memories."

Tickets for the Live Nation-promoted North American shows go on sale on Dec. 7. That also happens to be the date that One Direction invades "Saturday Night Live" for its second performance on the show.

"We simply can't wait to be back in North America touring and to see our fans," says the group's Niall Horan in a press statement. "It's going to be absolutely huge!"
