Busted are BACK!

Want to re-live your childhood? Well.. the rumours were certainly true. James Bourne, Matt Willis and Charlie Simpson have rejoined for a Busted Reunion and it is going to be massive.


For the first time in 12 years, the reformed group are going on a UK and Ireland tour which kicks off in May 2016.

This reunion was thought to be impossible after the split; even the band members said it themselves. They weren’t in the position to believe the band could reignite.

However, today that has all changed. A video was uploaded to the new @Busted Twitter account, where Matt, James and Charlie, who has returned, shared their feelings towards the break-up and the reformation.

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

Not only did it start to feel right for Charlie, but Matt had thoughts of his own.

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

If that’s not exciting enough, you can catch them on the road for their tour, where they will be performing all their old classics, including Year 3000, What I Go To School For and many more. Oh and, they are working on new music, for the first time since 2004!

James talks about tour and how they will kick-off where they left, at Wembley Arena .

“We’ve done this crazy, exciting, adventurous, scenic route back to being Busted. And now we’re here, we’re all super-re-energised” – James Bourne
