Elyar Fox has announced that he will open for The Wanted on their forthcoming arena tour of the UK.

The 18-year-old singer joins The Vamps on the supporting line-up for the group's final tour before they embark on solo projects.

Fox tweeted: "I'm going on tour with @thewanted and @TheVampsband YEEEEAAAHHHHHHH."

The Wanted's Word of Mouth tour starts at Liverpool's Echo Arena on 14 March and finishes in Nottingham on 1 April.

Elyar Fox was named in this year's MTV Brand New for 2014.

The poll was topped by The Vamps and also included The BBC's Sound of 2014 winner, Sam Smith, Ella Eyre and Royal Blood.

Fox also features on the line-up for McBusted's Hyde Park show on July 6. He is joined by Backstreet Boys, 5ive, Neon Jungle and more.

His debut single, Do It All Over Again, peaked at number five in the official UK singles chart when it was released last month.

The singer's debut album will be released later this year.

Fellow support group The Vamps recently announced their own headline tour, which will start in September 2014.
