The Wanted look set to be busy lads early next year after having announced a mammoth world tour, taking in a show in Dublin's O2 on 24th March.

Having already played to a combined audience of over 1 million people worldwide, The Wanted will be significantly adding to that figure with a multitude of shows across Europe, the UK, Canada and the US, with more to be announced across the world. 

Embarking on their most substantial tour yet, Max George said, "We can't wait to get back on the road, for what is our biggest tour so far. One of the best things about being in a band is performing live in front of the fans, and to do that across the world has always been our dream. Every night is going to be one long party!"

The Wanted release their third studio album, ‘Word Of Mouth’ on November 1st. The album, which will be available to pre-order from Tuesday 8th October, promises to be a combination of classic pop as well as exploring new ground. ‘Word Of Mouth’ arguably features the most hit singles on any one pop album this year, including massive hit singles 'Chasing The Sun', 'I Found You', 'Walks Like Rihanna'and 'We Own The Night'.

On the album Tom Parker said, "It's taken us two years to make this album and now that it's finally finished we are all really proud of the time and effort, not just that we put in to it but all the writers and the label too. We think it's our strongest album to date. We can't wait for our fans to hear it. They've been really patient but hopefully they'll think it's worth the wait!"

Tickets for the Dublin show will go on sale at 10am on Saturday 12th October.
