It’s the reunion we never thought would happen but THE WANTED have announced their long-awaited comeback, much to the delight of their dedicated fans.
They are set to perform together for the first time in seven years, and are releasing a greatest hits album. Most Wanted – The Greatest Hits, will be released on November 12th.
Max George, Tom Parker, Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuiness and Siva Kaneswaran took a long break back in 2014 after a really successful career. They have three chart albums under their belt and a massive 13 hit singles, including the number ones All Time Low and Glad You Came.
They had planned to reunite in 2020 to celebrate their 10th anniversary, but while the plan was first hit by the pandemic, the group were devastated by the news that Tom had been diagnosed with a brain tumour.
The guys broke the news with this hilarious video poking a little fun at bandmate Tom…….
No sooner had they announced the tour, which brings them to Cardiff next year, when Tom revealed a special charity concert at the Royal Albert Hall in aid of Stand Up To Cancer. Tickets for the INSIDE MY HEAD gig, on Monday 20th September are on sale now. You can get yours HERE but they are almost sold out. There are however, some really good seats behind the stage.
Tom wanted (pardon the pun) to put on this special show when he found out that just 1% of the National Cancer Research budget goes towards researching treatments for brain tumours.
All proceeds will be split equally between Stand Up To Cancer and The National Brain Appeal.
‘For me personally, it’s just fun. It’s been a very sad last eight months, so it’s been nice to just smile again.’
It’s going to be quite a night as well. Roman Kemp will be hosting and there’ll be special appearances from Liam Payne, KSI, Becky Hill, Sigrid and McFly.
Former One Direction member Liam Payne said……
‘When I heard about what Tom was going through I wanted to reach out to him. He’s showing so much strength and courage and I wanted to offer help and support in any way I could.
‘My thoughts have been with him a lot & it means the world that I can support him and his fundraising efforts by performing at the show, I can’t wait.’
As for the full tour that kicks off in Glasgow’s SSE Hydro and cover venues across Newcastle, Leeds, Bournemouth, Brighton, Cardiff, Nottingham, Birmingham, Manchester, London, Hull and Liverpool throughout March next year.
