Music Live

25 March 2022

Multi-platinum pop group – THE WANTED - will be headlining a huge outdoor show on Ladies Day at Newcastle Racecourse this July!

Following on from their hugely successful 12 date UK arena tour, the boys will be out and about this summer performing all their biggest hits. Taking place on Saturday 23rd July 2022, this special ‘Live After Racing’ show will offer spectators a full day of races at the prestigious north-east arena, followed by a set of pop smashes by the freshly reunited boy-band late into the evening. Speaking about The Wanted’s reunion and upcoming Newcastle show Jay McGuiness says: “‘It was amazing to perform again for all our fans on our recent arena tour and we can’t wait to do it all over again this Summer. Newcastle has always been a real party vibe for us whenever we’ve played there so we are really looking forward to this one.

Make no mistake about it: The Wanted are back! 7 years on from their hiatus, the boys follow their greatest hits album ‘Most Wanted – The Greatest Hits’ with a series of huge shows at some of the UK’s biggest arenas including the Newcastle Racecourse. 

The Wanted are one of Britain’s biggest pop bands, living a dream that has far surpassed even their most optimistic expectations and all with their best mates at their side. Having notched up 10 UK Top Ten singles and 2 UK Number 1 singles including the worldwide smash hit ‘Glad You Came’, the band are back to celebrate their huge global success and to make some more lasting memories together. 

It’s been 11 years since the success of their huge Number One debut single ‘All Time Low’ and 10 years since the global success of ‘Glad You Came’ and the band today still boast almost 6 million monthly listeners on Spotify and have a huge worldwide following on their social media platforms. The boys have more than 12 million record sales worldwide. 

Breaking a seven-year hiatus, in 2022 The Wanted are firmly back in action with the world in their sights once more. As founding member Max George says of the band’s reunion: “In the end I will look back on all this and say, I’ve travelled the world with these boys. And not only have I made friends for life, we’ve also done something that hardly anyone ever gets to do. Be successful in music worldwide. And I know we will never forget that. It is amazing that we get the chance to do it all over again”. 

A unique opportunity to join-in the celebrations, The Wanted will be promising all the hits and so much more when they headline Newcastle Racecourse on 23rd July 2022.
