Twenty years since breking on the scene with their debut single “What I Go To School For”, pop-punk favourites Busted are back celebrate their 20th anniversary by announcing details of a major UK arena tour starting on the 2nd September in Plymouth, alongside a series of new versions of fifteen of their classic hits to be released in the build-up, with some very special guests.

The tour will see the original much-loved trio – James Bourne, Charlie Simpson and Matt Willis – play their hits and fan-favourites to a combined audience of 150,000 people over the course of fifteen shows this September. Supporting Busted will be the iconic Hanson for all the shows from Birmingham onwards. The line-up will also feature New Hope Club, who scored a Top 5 hit with their self-titled debut album and have since exceeded 2 billion streams.

The first track to launch the 20th anniversary celebrations will be a new version of Busted’s song “Loser Kid” featuring Simple Plan, which will be released on April 14th. “Loser Kid” featured as the final track on their self-titled debut album and was co-written by Bourne, Simpson and Willis.

Fans who sign up to Busted’s mailing list here will receive access to a pre-sale for tour tickets which opens at 9am on Wednesday, March 29th. Remaining tickets will then go on general sale here from 9am on March 31st, 2023.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
