Dads Run in Heels for One Direction Tickets

The One Direction tickets for Mohegan were scooped up in 20 minutes.


Twenty minutes. That’s how long it took for tickets to sell out for next week’s One Direction concert at Mohegan Sun.

That is also why several dads, wearing heels, tutus, boas and other elaborate garb were at the West Haven High School track on Monday morning.

The Chaz & AJ Daddy Drag Race was a chance for daring dad to win tickets to Tuesday night's concert.

It should not be a surprise that the tickets were scooped up so quickly. The British boy band seems to draw huge crowds whenever they perform.

In New York in March, fans started camping out on Friday night for a Monday show on the Today Show.

Their manager told Jeff Rosen that it was all driven my social media.

The people who bought tickets to the Mohegan Show next Tuesday are from all over the country, including the West Coast. 

Five dads, all wearing heels, raced in the The Chaz & AJ Daddy Drag Race on Monday, May 21 to win tickets to the biggest show of the year.

Chris Thompson, who works for the Navy, won the race and his grateful daughters greeted him at the end.

The show is at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 22.
