The Wanted inspired by Take That for new arena tour

By
The Wanted have revealed that their upcoming arena shows have been inspired by Take That's record-breaking tour.

The boyband admitted that they want to make up for the fact they don't dance by putting on a dramatic concert that will see them play instruments.

Jay McGuiness told the Daily Star: "Because we don't dance, I want it to be as dramatic as possible. Our choreographer Beth, who does The X Factor and did our first tour, is coming up with ideas now.

"We like what Take That did with little bits of staging and then they came together to play instruments. I love that they can do the showy side then the band side."

The group also confessed that they have a new medley of covers for the shows after the success of their Taio Cruz mash-up during their 2011 gigs.

Nathan Sykes said: "We're doing another medley and have one day of rehearsal for it. All I can say is that we'll be a nine-piece band."

McGuiness added: "It will be a tribute to a particular artist and not Michael Jackson."

The Wanted made their US television debut on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this week, performing their hit 'Glad You Came'.
