‘The Wanted’ announce Birmingham show
They went straight in at Number 1 in yesterday’s Official UK Single Chart with their single ‘Glad You Came’ and now The Wanted have confirmed their first UK arena tour, which will see them wowing fans at Birmingham’s LG Arena on 1 March 2012.
The cheeky five-piece burst on to the scene last year with their 2011 BRIT nominated debut single ‘All Time Low’, which gave them their first Number 1. Since then they’ve had two further Top 5 hits with ‘Heart Vacancy’ and Comic Relief single ‘Gold Forever’, and a Top 5 album. Now Jay, Max, Nathan, Siva and Tom will be entertaining thousands of Midlands’ fans in March 2012 when they come to the LG Arena.
The tour comes on the back of their second Number 1 single ‘Glad You Came’, the first track from their hotly-tipped second album. The album has been written by some of music’s most successful writers and producers, including Steve Mac who has written and produced over 20 Number 1 singles for the likes of Westlife, Susan Boyle, The Saturdays, Il Divo and Leona Lewis. In addition to Wayne Hector – who has worked with Britney Spears, Pussycat Dolls, James Morrison and Craig David – and Ed Drewett.
Tickets for The Wanted’s tour go on sale at 9am on Friday 22 July, priced at £27.50 and £19.50. This promises to be one of next year’s most popular tours; to get your hands on tickets visit The Ticket Factory at www.theticketfactory.com or 0844 338 8000.
