NUMBER 1 boyband, The Wanted has announced its first ever UK arena tour, which stops off in the North East next year.
The five piece group, that became one of the biggest breakthrough acts of 2010, will be playing 11 arenas across the country culminating with a show at London’s The O2 Arena on March 3.
The Wanted boys burst into the charts last summer, with their 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 more than 30million plays of their videos on YouTube.
In March the boys released 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.
