Big Time Rush Announces ‘Better With U’ Tour with One Direction

Get ready for boyband heaven early next year. One of our favorite groups has teamed up with one of our favorite new groups for a new tour set to kick off in February. Who you might ask? None other than Big Time Rush and One Direction!

BTR announced the big news of their ‘Better With U’ headlining tour on ‘On Air with Ryan Seacrest’ this morning. This is the band’s first headlining tour and they couldn’t be more excited.

James Maslow told Seacrest, ”We’re stocked. We’ve been touring a lot doing fair dates this summer, but this is going to be our first real headlining ‘Big Time Rush’ tour! People can get tickets Saturday Novemeber 19th at 10 AM at BigTimeTour.com.”

Besides gearing up for the tour, BTR has been busy filming their first TV movie, “Big Time Movie’ and it will be influenced by another famous foursome. Carlos Pena revealed, “The movie is like The Beatles’ ’A Hard Days Night’ movie. It’s super goofy, but yet really cool. I think the fans are going to love it.” Logan Henderson added, “It was like James Bond and Austin Powers all mixed into one.”

We can’t wait! Don’t forget that you can also pre-order BTR’s sophomore album Elevate now on iTunes. The guys will also be doing a live chat on their website tonight at 5:30pm EST to chat about the tour and the album.
