Tom Parker announces global streaming charity concert in which The Wanted will perform live together for the first time in seven years


The Wanted’s Tom Parker has announced a global streaming charity concert titled Inside My Head, which will see his band The Wanted perform live together for the first time in seven years after announcing their reunion just last week. 

Hosted by Roman Kemp & Sonny Jay from Capital FM’s breakfast show, all proceeds from the Royal Albert Hall event will be shared between cancer charities.

The singer, 33, revealed in October 2020 that he had been diagnosed with an inoperable stage 4 glioblastoma (brain tumour).

A star-studded line-up including Liam Payne, KSI, Becky Hill, Sigrid and McFly will certainly entertain fans as they’re set to belt out their most-loved hits. Tickets go on sale on Monday at 4pm for a Tuesday 21st September show.

The Wanted bandmembers Tom, Max George, Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuiness and Siva Kaneswaran had originally planned to reform for their 10th anniversary in 2020, before the global pandemic forced them to delay the announcement. 

The Glad You Came hitmaker said, ‘I really am so looking forward to this event. It has been a real pleasure to put together and I am so grateful for all the support I have had from all these brilliant artists.

‘Now the news is out that my band will be performing too, it really is going to be a special night for so many reasons.

‘So many people from around the world have been requesting a stream so that they could support the event and the good causes and I’m delighted that the team have managed to put this together.’ 

Former One Direction band member Liam Payne added, ‘When I heard about what Tom was going through I wanted to reach out to him. He’s showing so much strength and courage and I wanted to offer help and support in any way I could.

‘My thoughts have been with him a lot & it means the world that I can support him and his fundraising efforts by performing at the show, I can’t wait.’

Tom recently announced a Channel 4 documentary with the same title as part of this year’s Stand Up 2 Cancer from Cancer Research UK. 

Tom, his wife Kelsey, their two-year-old daughter Aurelia and nine-month-old son Bodhi, have invited the cameras into their lives as they look to make every future moment count.

It will follow the process of staging the show, the managing of his diagnosis along with the exploration of possible treatments. The family will also meet with fellow brain cancer patients.
