Members of Busted to Reform and Tour Country with Mcfly

Everyone’s favourite childhood noughties rock band are to reform, well two out of three them anyway. 

Matt Willis and James Bourne from pop rock “Busted” are to join forces with the members of “rival” band Mcfly and tour various arenas across the country next year under the name “McBusted”.

Busted were only around from 2002-2005 but had two multi-platinum albums and a string of hits such as Year 3000, Air Hostess, Crash The Wedding and countless more. If you were aged between 6-15 during their time they were around you probably loved them, because c’mon, who doesn’t love Busted?

Mcfly have continued their success over the past 10 years after recently selling out a line of shows at the Royal Albert Hall. Tom from the band had this to say on Twitter: “And to clarify for those silly people asking if Mcfly is over, it is defo not…we’re here forever. Album 6 will be released after Christmas.”
