Busted reunion: Tour celebrating 20th anniversary coming to Glasgow OVO Hydro - tickets & presale details

Matt Willis, Charlie Simpson and James Bourne will be reuniting as Busted to celebrate the bands 20th anniversary with a date in Glasgow.

Busted will reunite once again to celebrate their 20th anniversary with a massive 15 date tour which includes a stop in Glasgow. The band will also make another stop in Aberdeen during the Scottish leg of their tour.

Fans were delighted when the band announced they would take to the stage together again, as well as release a brand new album after posting a cryptic message across their social media channels. The album will feature new versions of their iconic songs, as well as including other iconic bands from the 2000s such as All Time Low and McFly.

James explained: “It’s out of this world that we get to do this and we couldn’t be more excited about it. It’s going to be wicked.”

While bandmate Matt told a national newspaper: “Now it feels like it’s meant to feel. It’s like the very beginning all over again. Right now it feels like it’s barely even begun.”

Busted teased their reunion on Instagram earlier this week, exciting fans with a cryptic post which featured a VHS cassette tape being inserted into a TV unit. There was some static on the screen before the band’s logo appeared.

Charlie also teased a reunion during an appearance on Capital Breakfast when he said: “It might be coming. If it was coming I’d be sworn to secrecy.”
