BRITAIN’S popular pop band, The Wanted, will be performing on Sept 18 at Surf Beach @ Sunway Lagoon, Selangor.
Brought to you by JS Concert Productions, the concert will be the band’s first in the country, having attained gold status for its self-titled debut album. The Wanted’s subsequent albums are Battleground and The Wanted (USA Debut).
Not since the reigning days of Backstreet Boys, ’N Sync and 98 Degrees has a boy band crashed pop culture with such fervour. In the past few years, solo starlets including Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Rihanna have presided over the pop charts and with The Wanted, the popularity of boy bands has returned. The Wanted’s songs have also soared in the United States.
With its smash hit, Chasing The Sun, and numerous dance floor hits like All Time Low, Lose My Mind, Gold Forever, Lightning and Glad You Came, there’s simply no stopping the band!
The Wanted has found record-breaking success at every turn, garnering over 50 million YouTube views, touring with Bieber, performing at countless sold-out arenas and tremendous breakthrough success in the US.
Initially a slow build, Glad You Came took flight after the song was featured on the Feb 21 episode of Glee, breaking the record for highest-charting single by a British band since Take That’s 1995 hit Back for Good. The Take That track reached No. 7 on the Hot 100. Glad You Came peaked at No. 3.
Tickets are priced from RM150 to RM450. Early bird tickets bought before Aug 31 are between RM123 and RM363.
