Make no mistake about it, The Wanted are having the time of their lives. After only a year since their huge #1 debut single “All Time Low” they have already become one of Britain’s biggest, most brilliant Pop bands, living a dream that has far surpassed even their most optimistic expectations with their best mates by their side.
Hard working and quite plainly loving every single second, the band has already notched up four anthemic Top 5 singles and two #1 hits, been viewed a staggering 30 million times on YouTube and sold 400,000 copies of their eponymous debut album, which shook Pop music to its core upon its release last October. A year on and The Wanted are now set to shake up the charts all over again with their feverishly anticipated second album, a euphoric widescreen classic of epic Pop proportions. It comes at the end of simply phenomenal 2011, a year that has seen The Wanted become serious Pop players.
With their ferociously infectious tunes, rock solid friendship and laddish charms, they have stamped all over the typical boy band mold and brought a blast of much needed fresh air to British Pop music. The accolades have followed accordingly: The “Best British Single Brit” Award nomination for “All Time Low” in February, a deal with prestigious American label Def Jam in April and slots at the iTunes and V festivals in July and August, with 15,000 hollering revelers packing in the Big Blue Tent at V for a set many agreed was a highlight of the festival. All this from a band that started out paying their dues performing in somewhat dodgy nightclubs and a school tour that took them across the United Kingdom.
Mohegan Sun Arena is ranked the 5th best venue in the world by Billboard Magazine and was the 2008 and 2010 recipient of a Country Music Award for “Casino of The Year.”  Venues Today also ranked Mohegan Sun Arena #4 in 2011.
