Since 2009, The Wanted have endured the extremes of boy band drama, from a beef with their main competitors, fellow U.K. kids One Direction, to romancing Lindsay Lohan, to a one-season reality show on the E! network. Unfortunately, their tumultuous time together is coming to an end as they plan to take a “hiatus” to “pursue other projects” after their tour. Though they have continued to do well back home, The Wanted can only count “Glad You Came” off their 2011 album, Battleground, as their one big U.S. hit. Seeing them now may be your last opportunity to give their tunes another chance — at least until the inevitable reunion tour.
