Mcfly and Busted: two guitar pop camps unite for a UK tour. Can this work?
At first we thought it was a hoax now we're doing the Busted jump for joy at the news that early noughties boybands McFly and Busted are finally teaming up to bring us an entire UK 2014 tour under the portmanteau McBusted.
Back In The Day: Busted & McFly Were Rivals In Their 2004 Heyday.
McBusted will see the Mcfly line-up of Harry Judd, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Tom Fletcher unite with two of the three original members of Busted: Matt Willis and James Bourne. Charlie Simpson, whose departure for heavier rock in 2005 caused Busted to split, will not feature in McBusted but he has wished his former bandmates success.
Who hasn't dreamed of the day we'd get to year 'Year 3000' and 'Five Colours In Her Hair' on the same stage?
Suppress your squeals! Calling all fans of early millennial guitar pop: two of your favourite bands, Busted and McFly, are combining to form one powerful supergroup. The inventively named McBusted will be touring the UK next year with tickets on sale this Friday from 9pm.

The 15-minute ditty began with Fletcher crooning, "Recently I've been, having a wedding, I've married this girl, who's out of this world, believe me." Was it as sickly as it sounds? Probably.
Nevertheless, Fletcher managed to get through it while entertaining his guests, including best friends Harry Judd, Dougie Poynter and Danny Jones. He sang, "Thanks to my best men, you are the best friends, that I know I will ever have, you're more like brothers, sometimes lovers but we won't tell them about that.We've been together for what feels like forever but I'd do it all again and again, but we're only getting started and I know McFly will never end."
