If I have one weakness when it comes to music, it’s boybands. You wouldn’t guess that I am turning twenty one this year (when did that even happen?) as I’m head over heels for every single boyband on the market. When I heard that James & Matt from Busted were teaming up with the boys from McFly to make one heck of a supergroup, I’m pretty sure that heart palpitations occurred. There was no-one in the house to celebrate with me so I grabbed my ‘Busted – A Ticket For Everyone’ DVD and soaked up all those nostalgic vibes.
Ten years ago when Busted were at their prime I was a huuuuge fan. The collection of memorabilia I still have is a tiny little bit ridiculous; Everything from a tour t-shirt to their very last interview in Smash Hits magazine. So when the tickets were released I was sat with my Mam’s card at the ready to purchase some tickets and almost cried when I got some, almost. I went to see them at the back end of last month in Newcastle and I just wanted to let you know how amazing it was.
I’d seen Busted and McFly separately (I told you I love boybands) so to see them perform together was a dream come true. I was so pleased at the set list, as much as I adore McFly, it was great to hear so many Busted songs live again. Kicking it off with the well-known Air Hostess, I knew that this was going to be an amazing show. With strobe lights, fire, a flying car, UFO centre stage and a giant inflatable pair of ‘triple boobs’ – I couldn’t of wished for anything better. Not only are they brilliant performers, they are excellent musicians too. After ten years, I’m still in love with James Bourne and his little skinny legs…
