The Wanted Glad To Be "Home" As They Return To Jingle Bell Ball 2012

9 December 2012, 21:27

The 'Glad You Came' stars have returned to the UK and performed at today's huge event at the O2 Arena.

The Wanted said there is "no feeling like playing your home country" while playing live at the O2 Arena today (9th December) at the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball 2012.

The 'Glad You Came' stars returned to the UK this weekend and admitted it was "nice to be home" and back for day two of this year's Capital FM event .

The five-piece kicked off their Jingle Bell Ball return set with their latest single 'I Found You', which proved a huge hit on the Vodafone Big Top 40 last month, and band member Nathan Sykes' middle eight solo section of the song got a huge ovation from the 16,000 strong audience.

The Wanted then broke into their 2011 hit single 'Lightning', with band members Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Tom Parker, Nathan Sykes and Jay McGuiness jumping up and down on the stage platform urging the crowd to singe along.

"Hello London! It's nice to be home back in England," singer Max told the crowd. "I know we've been away for a while but you can't beat being here. And I mean that a lot. 

"The next song we're going to do is the song that started us off as a band," he added. "I hope you like it."

The Wanted then headed down from their staircase platform to the front of the stage to perform their debut single 'All Time Low'.

Next up on The Wanted's crowd-pleasing set list was fan favourite 'Heart Vacancy', from the band's self-titled debut album, which saw the five-piece slowing things down for the song and leading the audience through a side-to-side wave.

"The next song we're going to do for we want to see you jumping, this is 'Chasing The Sun'! Max said to announce the band's summer 2012 single.

"I'll tell you what. You can play any arena around the world, but there is no feeling like playing in your home country," Nathan said while introducing The Wanted's final single of the Jingle Bell Ball.

"It's such a special feeling to us, so thank you for all the support along the way," Nathan added, before the band broke into a huge performance of their Vodafone Big Top 40 number one 'Glad You Came'.
