The McFly and Busted boys pleased an extremely excited crowd at Glasgow’s SSE Arena – it’s clear to see how they sold out all their gigs so easily
McFly’s obsession with Back to The Future is obvious by their name, but rest assured – their new bandmates Busted share the same fetish for the ’80s cult film too.
Kicking off the supergroup McBusted ’s tour, Matt Willis and James Bourne clamber aboard a Delorean in homage to their new friends’ namesake, Marty McFly.
There’s lightning, pyrotechnics, and an on-stage Delorean. Great Scott!
McBusted are ready and raring to kick off their first UK tour.
The supergroup, made up of members from boybands McFly and Busted, will take to the stage in Glasgow on Friday night as they begin the 33-date arena tour.
“It’s here!!” Tweeted McBusted. “First day of the tour kicks off in Glasgow tonight…totally psyched, looking forward to seeing you all.”
Tom Fletcher also posted his excitement about the forthcoming gig, writing “Tonight is gonna be mega. If ever there’s a time to use the word “mega” it is definitely when describing the events about to unfold tonight.”
While the boys announced that they will be making an album together much of the music their will perform will be from the bands’ separate careers.
The McFly star’s Mrs describes how she went into labour…
Tom Fletcher‘s wife Giovanna has revealed that she realised she was about to give birth while out at dinner with McBusted.
Writing on her Hello! blog, the new mum said: “We were out for dinner with all the McBusted family (celebrating Danny’s birthday) when my waters broke – so I’m pretty certain Buzz just wanted to be part of the fun”.
“I can’t tell you how giddy we all were when we left our friends in the restaurant knowing that the next time we’d see them we’d have a child”, she wrote.
Despite the chaotic way she went into labour, Gi explained that her ‘wonderful husband’ was the best birthing partner she could’ve asked for.
McFly and Busted stars had no idea how big their supergroup would become
When Busted and McFly decided to play some dates together, they had no idea how popular their supergroup would be.
McBusted, as they jokingly called themselves, were created for a brief reunion at the Royal Albert Hall on McFly’s tenth anniversary concert.
It was so popular they decided to recreate it and go out on the road as a six-piece. Much to their surprise, they sold out every ticket on the tour. They added more. They sold out. They added more. The same thing happened again.
It was Back to the Future for McBusted as they filmed a new promotional video in tribute to the film.
The supergroup, formed when McFly and Busted joined forces earlier this year, may have been inspired by their namesake, the film’s hero Marty McFly.
The band – Tom Fletcher, Dougie Poynter, Danny Jones from McFly, and James Bourne and Matt Willis from Busted – were seen shooting the video in London with a DeLorean similar to the automobile time-machine in the 1980s film.
Drummer Harry Judd reveals McBusted will work on an album while on tour.
McBusted’s Harry Judd has confirmed that the group will release a new album.
The drummer explained that the newly-formed McFly and Busted supergroup will work on the album during their UK arena tour, which kicks off later this month.
“We were thinking of going in the studio and properly laying something down before the tour started,” Judd told Capital FM at Attitude’s 20th birthday.
“We’ve had no time because of Tom having his baby, the tour rehearsals and Matt’s filming bits on ‘Eastenders’. Everyone has been so busy.
5 Seconds Of Summer have given fans a big update on their upcoming debut album and say they have around 30 songs that could make the cut for the final track list. [...]
“We lived here for six months when we first started writing our album,’ Luke Hemmings told the Daily Star. “We wrote with loads of UK people like Roy Stride from Scouting For Girls and a track called ‘Take It Away’ with the boys from McFly.
“Because nothing’s been release yet we’re not sure what is going to make the album,” Calum teased. “It’s crazy, we’ve got at least 30 songs we all really love and I like them too much to give them away to anybody else.
“Some will be B-sides but we all have personal favourites so it’s going to be a struggle,” he added. [...]
McBusted have announced that they will support One Direction at one of their concerts in Paris this summer.
The supergroup – who kick off their own tour next month – confirmed the news on Twitter on Friday (March 21).
They tweeted: “AWESOME NEWS! We’re @onedirection’s special guest 21 Jun Paris Stade De France. Merci beaucoup.”
One Direction will play two shows at the Stade de France on June 20 and 21, as part of the European leg of their ‘Where We Are’ stadium tour.
The ‘Midnight Memories’ star has been writing alongside the ‘Love Is Easy’ four-piece this week.
One Direction star Niall Horan has revealed he has been writing new songs with good friends McFly this week.
The ‘Best Song Ever’ star updated fans on Twitter revealing he has been penning some tracks alongside McFly stars Danny Jones, Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter.
You know how you’re getting old? When you’re favourite boy band is all grown up…
As Tom Fletcher and wife Giovanna welcomes a tiny tot Buzz Michelangelo Fletcher, we take a trip down McFly memory lane.
Way back in 2003, four fresh-faced boys named Danny, Dougie, Tom and Harry were complete strangers.
Fast forward two years and they’d scooped a much-coveted Brit Award for Best British Pop Act, their debut album Room on the 3rd Floor went to number one, and 99.9% of us had their pretty faces plastered all over our bedroom walls.
