The Wanted: "We Are Now Being Compared To The Beatles"

5 March 2012, 07:26

The 'Lightning' stars admit that their huge success across the pond with single 'Glad You Came' is a "massive achievement."

The Wanted have confessed that the success of their single 'Glad You Came' reaching the number five spot on the US Billboard Top 100 chart is a "massive achievement" and they can't believe that they are now being compared to The Beatles.

Their track achieved the chart position on the latest rundown of the chart making them the first British boy band of their type to achieve such a feat since Take That's 'Back For Good' got to number seven in 1995.

Singer Tom Parker told the Sunday People: "It is a massive achievement to be bigger than Take That - Back For Good is such an amazing song so to beat them is huge.

"Now we're being compared to The Beatles, which just takes the p*** - most of us aren't even old enough to have a legal drink in America."

The band have been receiving congratulatory messages from the world of British music including Pixie Lott, Dappy and Cover Drive for their success in the US which included the single hitting the number two spot on the US iTunes Chart.

The band are now set to return to the States later this month for a performance of their single 'Glad You Came' on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno'.

The 'Warzone' band are currently in the middle of their UK arena tour 'The Code' which rolls into Brighton this evening (5th March).
