Those Busted tour dates we mentioned

By | Published on Wednesday 11 November 2015


So we mentioned yesterday, while the press conference was still going on, that Busted were back together. And that is a true fact. Charlie is back in Busted. Right in it.

“A year ago James and I got together and just started hanging out and it felt really different, somehow, to how it had ten years ago”, says the Simpsomeister. “And the idea crept into my head after all that time apart: what would Busted look like today?”

They’ve recorded some new songs, but don’t worry, the tour next year will be very much a greatest hits affair. Though maybe with one or two new ones thrown in so that you have time to go to the toilet. I hear the new songs are all called ‘Toilet Break’, actually. ‘Toilet Break Part 1′, Toilet Break Part 2’, and so on. And they’ll feature on a new album called ‘Go To The Toilet’, out next year.

Hey, that joke wasn’t very funny, was it? I should probably delete it and replace it with something like, “They’ve been to the year 3000, not much has changed but Charlie needs to pay his mortgage”, but I’m still holding on to these heavy tour dates and I’d like to put them down, so fuck it.
