The Wanted have cancelled all European dates on their upcoming tour.
The band wrote on their website:
“To all our fans in mainland Europe, we’re really sorry but due to some unforeseeable changes in our scheduling, we’re having to cancel our European tour dates in February/March. Rest assured all tickets are refundable, and we do hope to see you again really soon! The UK, Ireland & US legs of the tour are not affected. Thanks for your ongoing support. Lots of love, The Wanted xx”
This announcement comes just days after band members sent out tweets about Max George leaving the band in the middle of their tour to go home and deal with family matters.
Hopefully all five guys get back to it soon or there will be very disappointed fans!
Ladies, it looks like we’ve lost another boy band member! Just months after One Direction’s Zayn Malik proposed to Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards, The Wanted’s Siva Kaneswaran proposed to his longtime girlfriend Nareesha McCaffrey.
The singer confirmed the engagement news and opened up about it to U.K.’s Hello! magazine. During the interview, he revealed he asked Nareesha, a shoe designer, to marry him at a surprise birthday party she had planned for him. He explained:
“I said to her I wanted a present I would always remember this year by… for you to be my wife. It was like a military operation to plan the proposal. I couldn’t even tell the other boys in the band in case they blew the surprise.”
Siva proposed with a 3-carat solitaire cut diamond ring, which he had bought a month prior to the proposal. Nareesha was shocked about the engagement and told the magazine:
“I don’t like surprises and he really surprised me, but I was so happy. I can’t wait to start planning the wedding.”
You might remember Nareesha from The Wanted Life, the E! reality series which followed the boys while they live in the United States. Nareesha lived in the house with the group.
This news is sure to cause a frenzy!
British boy band The Wanted and Justin Bieber will be collaborating on a song that is to appear on the boy band’s upcoming album. The Wanted confirmed the news to MTV UK.
Bieber will be making an appearance on the guys’ upcoming sophomore album, which is slated to be released in September. Over the past months, the band has hinted on Bieber as a potential collaborator on their upcoming album. Last October, the guys told MTV UK that they have been writing songs with Bieber while he was completing his Believe tour.
The Wanted also revealed that they have worked with Dr. Luke, Rita Ora and Nasri on the new album.
Throat surgery is a scary thing, especially for singers! Lately we’ve heard of many singers undergoing throat surgery including Adele and John Mayer. Now we hear that The Wanted member Nathan Sykes will also be having throat surgery and on his 20th birthday no less!
On Thursday, April 18, the singer’s 20th birthday, Sykes will undergo a procedure to repair a hemorrhaging nodule on his vocal cords.
Sykes has been dealing with vocal issues for quite some time and sought the opinion of a specialist, who advised that the surgery wasn’t an option — it has to be done! The singer left the Bahamas and headed to Los Angeles for the surgery.
Sykes will have to spend a month recovering, during which time he will be unable to speak.
The band posted on their Facebook page:
“Our lil Nath has to go in for an operation on his throat, on his birthday to make him better. So please join us in wishing our brother and our friend well. Get well soon Nath, we love ya!”
Sources say that Nathan and the rest of the band are worried about their future post-surgery, but we’ve seen both Adele and Mayer make great comebacks after their surgeries!
We hope everything goes well!
The boys of The Wanted have confirmed that they will star in a new E! reality series, which is set to begin premiere in June!
The show will be produced by Ryan Seacrest and right now is going with the title, The Wanted Life. The show will focus on the guys living in Los Angeles together.
The announcement of the show prompted tweets from Seacrest, as well as the band’s manager, Scooter Braun.
“We’re gonna put @TheWanted in a house here in LA for a couple months w/every faith they’ll behave themselves. #TheWantedOnE”
Braun’s tweet confirmed that the series has already been/begun recording, saying:
“i have seen the pilot episode… trust me… get ready to love these guys and die laughing. @TheWanted on E! coming VERY SOON!”
The boys are following in the footsteps of another British group, The Saturdays, who also have a reality series on E!, Chasing the Saturdays.
As promised, The Wanted’s new single, “I Found You,” has hit the radio today!
It’s pretty similar in sound to most of the tracks off their The Wanted album — poppy with dance beats.
The song bounces all over the place, opening with jumping synths before going into a chorus that is sung in falsetto in its entirety. The chorus is definitely something to get used to as far as the falsetto goes. The tempo slows down a bit for the bridge before going back into the dance thumping chorus.
“I Found You,” produced by Steve Mac, is about discovering love in an unexpected place. It is the first single off their upcoming album, which isn’t complete yet.
Check out “I Found You” after the jump!
The Wanted announced yesterday that their new single will be dropping on Friday!
“I Found You” will hit the radio tomorrow, Friday September 7! The band made this announcement yesterday via Twitter, saying:
“Our brand new single is titled ‘I Found You’ & you’ll be able to hear it on radio stations everywhere from Friday morning!!!”
If you are huge fans of The Wanted and are members of their fan club, the boys had some exciting news for you:
“BUT!!! Our #WantedWorld members will get a worldwide exclusive preview of the single tomorrow!!! You get to hear it before anyone else ”
“I Found You” is not on the boys’ self-titled EP.
The boys will be attending the MTV Video Music Awards tonight where they are up for Best New Artist for “Glad You Came.”
The boys of the hit ’90s boy band 98 Degrees reunited this morning for the first time in nearly 10 years!
Nick and Drew Lachey, Jeff Timmons, and Justin Jeffre rocked out this morning in Rockefellar Plaza for a packed crowd of loyal fans, who have probably been waiting for this day for what seems like FOREVER! The boys performed their hit songs, “The Hardest Thing,” “Invisible Man,” and “Because Of You.”
So can we expect to see more 98 Degrees in the future? Nick Lachey said:
“We view this opportunity as a chance to kind of test it out and see if it was still fun, and I think we’re all very happy to say we’re having a great time. I think you can expect more from us down the line.”
While we don’t know what the future holds exactly for the guys, their next stop is the Mixtape Festival tomorrow night in Hershey Park, Pennsylvania.
2012 seems to be the year of the boy bands once again! With new ones rising to fame (The Wanted, One Direction, Big Time Rush), as well as old ones resurfacing (Backstreet Boys, New Kids On The Block, Take That) will any others reunite soon??? Achemmm,NSYNC please?!
Check out 98 Degrees perform “The Hardest Thing” after the jump! It definitely brought me back to my teenage years!
After rumors flew and were denied a few months ago about a 98 Degrees reunion, it looks like things have changed a bit.
While the band will not be reuniting for a full tour, they will reunite for one night only! The boy band will perform at Pennsylvania’s Mixtape Festival in August. The news was confirmed by band members Nick Lachey and Drew Lachey.
Nick and Drew called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show on Wednesday to talk about their upcoming reunion. Drew told Seacrest:
“We’re very excited about the opportunity and we’ve been toying around with the idea for a couple of years of: ‘if we got back together, when would be the right scenario, and this music festival right here just kind of seemed like the right time to get back together and do a show and kick the tires and see how it feels.’”
The festival, which is August 18, will definitely be a boy band filled festival! Also slated to perform are The Wanted, New Kids on the Block, and NKOTBSB. This will be the first time 98 Degrees has performed together in more than ten years!
Who will be making a trip to the Mixtape Festival for this momentous occasion???
I can hear girls all over the world screaming already!
Everyone seems to think because there are two new and highly successful boy bands in the music scene right now that they are feuding with each other! According to band members from One Direction and The Wanted that couldn’t be further from the truth, and what better way to prove that than team up for a collaboration?!
In an interview with Hollywood Scoop, the boys of The Wanted revealed that there is no rivalry between them and One Direction and that they would love to team up with them for a good cause. The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes admitted:
“I think its very expected from the media always trying to put two bands together and trying to start a rivalry. We have no issue with them whatsoever. I think the collaboration between the two bands could generate a lot of cash maybe and we would actually be willing to do it for charity.”
Jay McGuiness of The Wanted also joked that they would love to collaborate with Justin Bieber, saying:
“I think I would have to rap battle with him and then we’ll see how good he’s doing…who knows.”
Fans may not have to wait too long to see the Bieber/The Wanted collaboration. Bieber announced his upcoming Believe tour this morning and The Wanted are rumored to join Carly Rae Jepsen as opening acts on the tour!
