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.
