McBusted kick-started their Most Excellent Adventure Tour in Glasgow last week, appearing on stage alongside the world’s biggest arcade machine.

Digital Spy caught up with the six-piece the morning after the first show to find out how they brought their latest larger-than-life show together.

The first show was a success, but that didn’t stop McBusted worrying about it going right on the night.

Matt: “There was so much worry that certain things weren’t going to go right, because it’s got to work, that show. There’s so many elements.”
Tom: “We know what we’re doing musically now because we’ve been playing these songs for a while, but it more that there’s so much that’s out of your control. You know you’re about to step on something and you hope it goes down under the stage! You are just totally relying on everyone pulling together and making sure they’re doing the right thing at the right time.”
