First Ever UK Arena Tour Announced

No 1 boy band, The Wanted have announced their first ever UK Arena Tour for Spring 2012.


The five piece group that became one of the biggest breakthrough acts of 2010 will be playing 11 arenas across the country making their headlining debut at the Metro Radio Arena on Saturday 25th February 2012.

“After the success of our first tour (which we think the mums just may have enjoyed even more than their kids) we're planning our first arena tour for February and March of next year.  We just want everyone to come along and enjoy themselves, so don your "The Wanted" t-shirts and why not purchase a ticket-for-entry?  It'll be spiffing!”

The Wanted boys burst into our lives and the charts last summer, with their incredible 2011 BRIT nominated debut single, All Time Low, storming straight into the number one spot. Followed by number two hit Heart Vacancy, they have quickly built up a huge fanbase. Their self-titled debut album raced into the top five, and they have had over an incredible 30 million plays of their videos on YouTube. In March the boys were given the honour of releasing the official Comic Relief single for Red Nose Day. The single Gold Forever became their third top five single.

Their latest number 1 single Glad You Came is the first from their hotly tipped second album. Written by Steve Mac, Wayne Hector and Ed Drewitt and produced by Steve Mac, this song brings a harder, club-influenced sound to the table for Jay, Max, Nathan, Siva and Tom. A dance floor filler, with a heavy baseline combined with the boy’s rock vocals, this track will have you raving from London to Ibiza this summer.

Don’t miss the chance to see The Wanted Live next year!!
