It’s the reunion they said could never happen – even the members themselves have admitted it. Busted have announced their return to the world of pop in 2016. Matt, James and Charlie will be coming to Liverpool on 22 May 2016. With an incredible five million record sales, two 4 x platinum albums and four number one singles to their name, a staggering 700,000 concert tickets sold in one year, two BRIT Awards and a Record of the Year Award, Busted are one of the biggest home-grown pop acts of the 21st century. Matt Willis said “For me, there’s a huge sense of unfinished business … I always thought in my heart we’d do Busted again, but that it was just a matter of when and how”.
