The "Where We Are" tour has concerts scheduled for Aug. 7, 8 and 9 in Foxborough.

The Australian pop band 5 Seconds of Summer is opening for the popular British boy band.

Tickets for the Thursday and Friday shows are sold out, but as of Thursday morning there were newly-released tickets still available for the Saturday show.
