World-famous pop band One Direction will headline a concert at Ralph Wilson Stadium on September 3, 2015.

This is the first time Ralph Wilson Stadium will hold a concert since it hosted Dave Matthews Band on June 20, 2001, ten days after hosting *NSYNC on June 10, 2001. Over 30 concerts have been held at the stadium since 1974.

"One of the goals of the recent renovations to Ralph Wilson Stadium was to make it a multi-purpose facility," said Bills President Russ Brandon. "We're thrilled to bring concerts back to the Ralph, and we know our region will bring the same excitement they bring to the stadium on gamedays. Live Nation has been instrumental in this process and we're looking forward to working with them to bring One Direction and even more great acts in the future."

"We couldn't be happier that the first show at Ralph Wilson Stadium in over a decade is superstar group, One Direction," said Jim Koplik, Live Nation President of Connecticut & Upstate NY. "We expect the show to be a huge success and open the door for future concerts at the Ralph."

"We could not be more excited about the new tour," said Niall Horan of One Direction. "We've started rehearsing songs from the new album and can't wait for the fans to hear them live. We're just so very thankful to our amazingly loyal fans - they make it possible for us to play in these incredible places and continue to surprise us every day with their* *unwavering support."

Presale opportunities will be available for Bills premium seat holders, season ticket members and Buffalo Bills partners. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on November 1, 2014. Tickets may be purchased at ticketmaster.com or any participating Ticketmaster outlet. The Ralph Wilson Stadium ticket office is not a Ticketmaster outlet.
