The rumours are true! Busted are BACK, with the original line-up joining forces in London today.
Charlie Simpson, James Bourne and Matt Willis announced their official comeback in the capital today; inviting the press to join them at the same hotel where they announced their split 11 years ago.
The trio also discussed their new tour and future, which looks set to feature a lot of new music.
“A year ago James and I got together and just started hanging out,”Charlie explained. “…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?”
“For me, there’s a huge sense of unfinished business …” Matt added. “I always thought in my heart we’d do Busted again, but that it was just a matter of when and how.”
While James said: “We’ve done this crazy, exciting, adventurous, scenic route back to being Busted. And now we’re here, we’re all super-re-energised.”
The reunion will be celebrated with a 11-date UK tour in May 2016 (see full dates below), including a kick-off show at The SSE Arena, Wembley where they played their last ever headline gig together.
Tickets for Busted’s 2016 comeback tour go on sale at 09:00 on Friday 13 November, just head to Ticketmaster.co.uk.
