One Direction Headlining the 2015 Honda Civic Tour, Will Design a Car

We used know close to nothing about One Direction, but after a couple of searches we found they’re quite big these days. With or without their recently departed band member Zayn Malik, the band already has a won a bunch of trophies. It’s no wonder Honda decided to have them top their annual concert tour.

In case you haven’t heard of it, we’ll take the time to inform you that Honda is one of the automakers sponsoring a music event. Dubbed the Honda Civic Tour, the annual concert tour has been going on since 2001. Each year, the headlining band or bands customize a Honda Civic for concert patrons to win in a raffle.

In other words, there’s going to be a One Direction-designed Honda Civic put out this year. This little marketing venture reminds us of the band’s Volkswagen Crafter van they had customized and covered in the same graphics as the famous Scooby Doo Mystery Machine. Sure that was two years ago, so we can only hope the boy-band members have grown up to hold better ideas today.

Honda just made the announcement of this year’s headliner, but we know they have been collaborating with the English-Irish pop boy team before. Three years ago, the pop sensation band was on the road for their first-ever headlining North American tour in support of their debut album Up All Night. During that trip, they also stopped at The Theatre at the Honda Center.

If you’re a fan of the band, you should know tickets are now available online. Meanwhile, we’ll be waiting to see how that Civic turns out.

Random fact: The Theatre at Honda Center is an intimate concert venue within the arena that has hosted shows from several notable artists since its inception in 2001. With an approximate seating capacity of 7,000, it’s decorated with cyber lights and five crystal chandeliers to create.
