One Direction look to pack their screaming fans into CenturyLink Field next summer.

CenturyLink Field doesn't host many concerts. It's a place for rock royalty: The Rolling Stones, U2, Metallica... and now One Direction. (One of these things is not like the other.) The wildly popular British boy band heads stateside next summer in support of the quintet's latest album Four (you may be surprised to find out this is group's fourth record) and will be eliciting high-pitched squeals for joy with hits like "What Makes You Beautiful" and "Best Song Ever." Prepare for the 12th Man to become the 6th Tween.

Tickets for One Direction at CenturyLink Field go on sale Saturday, November 1 at 10am via Seats start at $40 and top out out at $350 VIP packages.

The last time comedian Patton Oswalt headlined in our neck of the woods was in October 2012 at Tulalip Resort Casino. Everything about that gig went bad in such a spectacular fashion that he devoted a good chunk of his most recent standup special, Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time, to telling the story. Things will be decidedly less rowdy when Oswalt returns in January for two distinctly different events. On January 30, he'll perform his signature brand of nerd culture-infused standup in Tacoma at the Pantages Theatre. The following night he'll head up to Seattle to present his new book Silver Screen Fiend at Town Hall in conversation with The Simpsons producer/writer George Meyer. The book focuses on his his obsessive love of old and obscure cinema and his early days in the Los Angeles comedy scene.

Both Oswalt events are currently on sale. Seats for the Pantages Theatre show are $35 and available via Tickets for Seattle Arts and Lectures' Patton Oswalt: Off the Page at Town Hall run $35 (which includes a copy of Silver Screen Fiend) and can be purchased at
