Remember when big-brows Charlie Simpson ruined everybody’s dreams of a Busted reunion?
Well now he is eating his words, as the band are set to reform next year!
It’s the reunion they said could never happen – even the members themselves have admitted it. But today Busted announce their return to the world of pop in 2016. Matt, James and Charlie are returning to the road with a full UK arena tour, and they are working on brand new Busted music for the first time since 2004.
“A year ago James and I got together and just started hanging out … and it felt really different, somehow, to how it had ten years ago. And the idea crept into my head after all that time apart: what would Busted look like today?” – Charlie Simpson
Coming to Capital FM Arena Nottingham on Wednesday 18 May 2016, it will be the first time in 12 years anyone will be able to see the three members play all their greatest hits together live – among them the simply huge, unforgettable smashes “What I Go To School For”, “Crashed The Wedding”, “You Said No”, “Air Hostess” and “Year 3000.”
“For me, there’s a huge sense of unfinished business … I always thought in my heart we’d do Busted again, but that it was just a matter of when and how” – Matt Willis
With an incredible five million record sales, two platinum albums and four number one singles to their name, two BRIT Awards and a Record of the Year Award, Busted are one of the biggest home-grown pop acts of the 21st century.
Tickets for their show at the Capital FM Arena will go on sale at 9am on Friday 13th November, and will cost between £42-£46.50, including an administration fee. To book, visit www.capitalfmarena.com/online/busted.
These boys are back and ready to shake up the pop world all over again.
But don’t worry, Charlie’s still got his massive eyebrows.
