AECC are pleased to announce the UK’s current favourite boyband, The Wanted, are performing at the Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre’s (AECC’s) Press & Journal Arena as part of their first ever UK Arena Tour in spring 2012.
The five-piece group, that became one of the biggest breakthrough acts of 2010, will be playing in Aberdeen on Tuesday 28th February 2012.
The Wanted boys said, “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 bassline combined with the boy’s rock vocals, this track will have you raving from London to Ibiza this summer.
Earlier this year the boys performed their first headline tour which received rave reviews from the press with The Times, Evening Standard and News Of The World giving the shows four stars. Proof, if ever it was needed, that The Wanted are definitely not taking any prisoners when it comes to being the hottest new pop group in the UK.
Brian Horsburgh, AECC’s Managing Director says, “We are delighted to welcome The Wanted to AECC as part of their first ever arena tour. We are sure this show will be one of the must-see shows of 2012.”
