The Wanted Take Inspiration From Take That For Upcoming Arena Tour

The 'Lightning' stars want their shows to be as "dramatic" as possible.

The Wanted are drawining inspiration from man band Take That as they hope to make their upcoming live UK arena tour shows as "dramatic" as they possibly can.

The 'Glad You Came' singers believe that Gary Barlow and his group were able to merge varying aspects of their performance together which is something singer Jay McGuiness wants to replicate.

Speaking to the Daily Star he said: "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.

"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."

The group also teased a possible surprise tribute medley which they are working on for the tour.

Nathan Sykes confessed: "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."

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

The tour kicks off on the 15th February at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham and follows a series of dates in the US

Meanwhile, The Wanted recently made their first American TV appearance as they performed their single 'Glad You Came' on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this week.
