The Wanted gear up for UK tour

The Wanted have said they can't wait to see their fans 'pop' ahead of their UK tour.

The boyband are set to kick off a series of dates starting at the O2 Apollo in Manchester on March 28.

Singer Max George said he can't wait to get on the road again.

'The thing I’m most looking forward to is the curtains going up, the first note of the first song starting and then the screams kicking in,' he told The Daily Star.

'We’re playing theatres so it’ll be quite intimate,' he continued. 'But I think the screaming might mean it’s not that intimate.'

The tour will also take in two shows at London's HMV Hammersmith Apollo.

'Some of the girls look like they’re going to pop. Others cry and stuff,' Max said of previous tours. 

'I just hope it’s not us hitting wrong notes that makes people cry.'
