McBusted’s UK dominance continues as the McFly and Busted boys announce two spectacular outdoor live shows this summer. Pandemonium is expected to hit the south west and East Anglia as pop’s biggest supergroup touch down at Weston-super-Mare beach and Ipswich Chantry Park on 28 and 29 June respectively. Adding to the excitement and joining McBusted will be special guests, and one of the biggest boybands of all time, Backstreet Boys in what’s set to be the most rip-roaring concerts not to be missed!
Tickets go on general sale 10am GMT on Friday 31 January from www.aeglive.co.uk
Also on the poptastic bill is English indie rock band, Scouting For Girls, whose Greatest Hits album fired straight up the charts last summer, now they’re back to play the hits live. Joining the all-male lineup is 5IVE, who are fresh off hit TV show, The Big Reunion and its subsequent live shows – The Big Reunion: On Tour. Rounding up with Britain’s Got Talent winners, Diversity, who will be bringing their dance moves all the way across the UK after sellout shows last year.
McBusted say, “We can’t wait to be adding further outdoor shows and look forward to playing all the Mcfly and Busted hits.”
Fans of the McBusted have been in a frenzy since they announced their unification last year. A 35-date 2014 arena tour including 3 sold out O2 shows and a headline show at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park on July 6th have sent fans into hysteria. McBusted is the coming together of two of the UK’s biggest acts – Busted and McFly, who throughout their career have combined their winning, infectious pop and rock songs with their irresistible personalities and humour. Between them, they have an arsenal of hits to unleash, including Busted’s ‘Year 3000’ and ‘What I Go To School For’ combined with McFly’s ‘Shine A `Light’ and ‘All About You’.
