We've woken up to news more exciting than bacon sandwiches this morning, after 5 Seconds of Summer announced that they will be opening for One Direction on the North American leg of the Where We Are stadium tour.

WELL COLOUR US EXCITED AND PASS US THE FRICKING PHONE TO HOLD.

She Looks So Perfect

There's been shizloads of speculation over  who will be supporting 1D on the long string of dates beginning in April, with Little Mix being tipped at one point - before the girls revealed that due to a schedule clash, that wouldn't be possible.

Well, the 5SOS boys have now announced that it is THEM of fit faces and very attractive arms that will be warming up the North American crowds from August until October, writing in an official statement:

"We are soooo excited to be supporting the 1D lads on their “Where We Are Tour” in the USA & Canada this year :-) The tour last year was a wicked experience and helped us take our band to places we never even dreamed possible.

"Cannot wait to play our new music and rock out in stadiums across North America! It’s going to be EPIC. We will see you soon… Big love, 5SOS x"

One person who seems even more excited about this than us is a certain Niall Horan, who took to twitter to express his joy at the news, writing: "Ahhhhh yesssssss!! @5SOS are opening up for us again! TMH was great fun! But dudes we're playing f'in stadiums! Agggghhhhh !"

Nialler fangirling is officially our favourite thing, just FYI. Louis Tomlinson also commented on the announcement, writing: "Can't wait to have the @5SOS boys with us again on tour !!".

Ok so we're still a bit gutted that we won't actually get to see the boys here in the UK, but still - there will be PHOTOS there will be VIDEOS... and most of all Michael will be reunited with Lou Teasdale. HOORAY.
