Lacklustre turnout for The Wanted's 1st concert here

The Max Pavilion, Singapore Expo/Sunday

The British boyband might be called The Wanted but going by the lacklustre turnout at their first full concert here, the boys might have left feeling a tad bit unwanted.

Sunday night's concert at the Max Pavilion at the Singapore Expo saw empty seats, while there were huge pockets of space in the main standing area. Perhaps the band wanted a large venue to accommodate the loud, pulsating beats and create a moshpit feel, but it was left wanting.

And the hysteria, while still ear-piercing at bursts, was no where near the levels other pop starlets such as Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift commanded when they played here.

Overall, it was truly a concert for The Wanted diehards. The 3,000-strong crowd was made up mostly of teenage girls, and surprisingly, a sizeable number of boys too.
