Busted Are Back And Yes, Charlie Simpson Has Rejoined The Band
The day has finally arrived...
The band haven't performed together since 2004, but 11 years later, here they are, as chummy as ever. WE KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN ONE DAY!
At a press conference this morning (10 November) a video was premiered, documenting the band's reunion and how it all came about. The trio then answered questions and chatted about how they came to reunite, and we collectively lost our s**t.
After vowing never to return to Busted after leaving the band in 2005, the 30-year-old admitted that when he said those things he definitely meant it… at the time.
He said: "Staying in the band at that time could have risked our friendship. This has been a gradual process. I've honestly lost count of the number of times where I've publicly said I wouldn't do this again. But I've changed my mind."
We're so glad you have Charlie, we almost wept with joy at the thought of seeing you perform 'Air Hostess' again.
With new music on the horizon and a change in circumstances, Simpson has re-joined the band who will tour the UK and Ireland in May next year, kicking it all off where they last performed… Wembley Stadium.
Speaking about their reunion tour, Matt Willis said: "Busted only had two albums so we're probably going to play every song that you know then start all over again!"
We can't wait to sing along to EVERY word.
Addressing their current creative projects, such as McBusted and Fightstar, the boys said they are focusing on Busted for now but that doesn't mean the end for the other ventures.
