One Direction fans won't have to wait too long to see the boy band live in concert again!

The British-Irish boy band announced on ABC's 'Good Morning America' that the group will be going on a North American tour beginning in Aug. 2014, with tickets going on sale as early as Dec. 7.

"Next year, as you know, we're doing our tour, the 'Where We Are' tour, and we're bringing it to North America," said Niall Horan on "GMA." "The tickets for the tour go on sale on the seventh of December this year and we'll be playing our first show on the first of Aug. in Toronto, so we're very excited. It's gonna be fun."

The "Where We Are" tour announcement comes on the heels of the release of the former "The X Factor" U.K. contestant's third studio album, "Midnight Memories," which hit retailers on Nov. 25. The album features the hit singles "Best Song Ever" and "Story of My Life," both of which have peaked within the top five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this year.

The group performed "Story of My Life" at the 2013 American Music Awards (AMAs), where they also took home two awards, including Favorite Pop/Rock Group and Favorite Pop/Rock Album for 2012's "Take Me Home." Despite the numerous accolades and admiration, the band tells 'GMA' they are still astonished by their success and loyalty of their fans.

"I think it's such a hard thing to comprehend really," Louis Tomlinson said. "Me and Zayn [Malik] we sat in the room yesterday and we had a little bit of a toast and celebration, but it's such a hard thing to get your head around. It's a testament to how amazing our fans are, you know?"
