Exciting news: McFly and Busted are joining together to make one massive super boyband, called … McBusted!
AND they’re going on tour next year. AND there’s a picture of them, in which Matt Willis looks like he’s come straight from a wedding to find out the rest of the band had gone casual for the photoshoot. Maybe that’s what happened? We’ll never know.
The two bands announced the tour today in a press conference hosted by The Voice presenter Emma Willis. Well, she is married to Matt – they probably got her for mate’s rates, didn’t they?
The only sad part of this whole situation is that while all of McFly are in (that’s Dougie Poynter, Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones and Harry Judd), only two of Busted – Matt Willis and James Bourne – are involved. Charlie Simpson isn’t playing – probably because he was the one who hated being in Busted first time round, and he’s the one who’s been ploughing ahead with his solo career (first in Fightstar, then on his own).
They’ve just claimed that there are “no hard feelings” with Charlie. Hmm.
McBusted will be touring in April 2014, kicking off in Liverpool on 19 April, and they’re also performing on Children In Need this Friday too. Let’s hope they sort out that dress code before then.
