LONDON: Hit boy band One Direction is to release a concert film to be screened in cinemas around the world, the group said on Tuesday (July 22).

The recording of a concert at San Siro Stadium in Milan, Italy will be screened in cinemas on October 11 and 12.

Called Where We Are, the same name as the band's current world tour, the film will include behind-the-scenes footage and a 15-minute interview.

"The Where We Are tour is coming to a cinema near you for one weekend only," band member Zayn Malik said.

It follows the success of their documentary film This Is Us in 2013, which made £40m (S$84.6m) worldwide.

Tickets for screenings go on sale in late July, and a DVD will be released in December.
