The Wanted wrap things up in Dubai

Teen pop band to play one of their final gigs before calling in a break

Knowledge story, The Knowledge

Successful English-Irish pop band The Wanted are to take a break at the end of their upcoming Word of Mouth Tour, which begins on March 14, taking in 13 cities. But Dubai and UAE-based fans shouldn’t worry too much – the boys will still be performing at this year’s Dubai International Jazz Festival, taking the stage on Friday February 14, when they share the billing with fellow British artist Olly Murs. The group, who shot to fame in 2010 with their self-titled debut album, have decided to take time out from performing together to pursue personal endeavours, according to their website, but will continue as The Wanted, ‘and look forward to many successful projects together in the future’.
