Recent TV appearances by red-hot British pop-vocal sensation THE WANTED on Ellen and Chelsea Lately, bolstered by a feature placement on FOX’s Glee for the group’s premiere U.S. single “Glad You Came” on Mercury/Island Def Jam, combined to kick the song to #2 on the U.S. iTunes chart and #1 on the Canadian iTunes chart. The group now looks forward to upcoming spots on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, NBC’s The Today Show, ABC’s The View, along with headlining this year’s second annual mtvU Spring Break 2012 in Las Vegas.
Success has come quickly for THE WANTED, first with a sold-out headlining show at New York’s Gramercy Theater, followed by their yet again sold-out 3-week, 10-city promotion and performance mini-tour of the U.S., which kicked off in Orlando and wrapped up with a gala night at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. In the wake of the tour, “Glad You Came” blasted into the Billboard Hot 100′s Top 10, vaulting 23*-5* with top Digital Gainer honors, jumped to #9-bullet on the Top 40 Airplay chart, jumped 19*-3* on the Billboard Hot Digital Songs Chart, with a total radio audience of more than 60 million, on over 160 pop stations, and officially impacted at Hot AC formats last week.
