UK boyband The Wanted are on the verge of breaking the US, with official US debut single "Glad You Came" climbing on iTunes and debuting on the Hot 100 at #85 (thanks to downloads of about 20,000). Thankfully, their UK fans need not worry, as they are set to continue promoting second album "Battleground" into 2012 with their very own tour - spanning Scotland and Ireland as well as England.
Recently signed boy band (as opposed to "boyband") Lawson and girl band Fanfair will be joint support acts.
