The Wanted, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, One Direction + More to Perform Z100 Jingle Ball
Jingle Ball 2012 is a stellar affair full of A-list pop names. Other than awards show stages, it’s rare you’ll find a lineup like this anywhere else: Taylor Swift, the Wanted, Justin Bieber, One Direction and more will all grace Madison Square Garden on Dec. 17!
Joining them will be 1D and Swift BFF Ed Sheeran, One Direction tourmate Olly Murs, B.o.B (who collaborated with Swift on ‘Both of Us’), Ne-Yo and Jason Mraz. The concert, hosted by New York City’s Z100, always sells out, but pre-sales begin this Monday, Oct. 22 at 4 PM ET. Tickets go on sale to the general public Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 4 PM ET. There’s an eight ticket limit per person, likely to attempt curbing scalpers.
It will be interesting to see Swift and One Direction interacting. News broke earlier today (Oct. 19) that she briefly and casually dated heartthrob Harry Styles before he was spotted smooching model Emma Ostilly. Also amusing may be the dynamic between One Direction and the Wanted. 1D singer Louis Tomlinson, who has the most acrimonious relationship with the bad boys of the Wanted, recently imitated the band during a radio show takeover.
Swift’s performance is likely just another cog in the machine that is her massive promotion for ‘Red,’ due Oct. 22, while One Direction are promoting ‘Take Me Home,’ which hits shelves Nov. 13. The Wanted are also hard at work on a new record, recently having released an amazing espionage-themed video for ‘I Found You.’
