Exclusive: The Wanted: 'Supporting Britney Spears was a no-brainer'

By
The Wanted have revealed that opening one of Britney Spears's tour dates was a no-brainer.

The boyband will be supporting the star during her Manchester show on November 6 after being asked by Spears herself.

Siva Kaneswaran told Digital Spy: "I'm really looking forward to it. We're all well chuffed as Britney's a nice girl. She asked us and within a minute we were like, 'Yes!' It was a bit of a no-brainer."

He added: "When we went to see her at Wembley Arena, we walked in and she looked like she was well pumped to get on stage. I'm guessing she must be well tired as she's on her 52nd or 53rd gig, I think.

"We're only doing 27 on our arena tour and that's quite demanding! She's probably knackered about now, but she's still in great shape."

When asked what his favourite Britney track is, Siva responded: "Probably 'Baby... One More Time'. When I went to meet her I was in the car singing it and I was like, 'Oh my God, I'm actually meeting her!' I was like a fangirl."

The Wanted release their new album Battleground in the UK on Sunday (November 6).
