Matt Willis: "McBusted Only Play Hits!"
MTV News UK catch up with the supergroup ahead of their headline show at Hyde Park this weekend...
McBusted have revealed that fans can expect a hit-packed set at their British Summertime gig at Hyde Park on Sunday (July 6), with the lads branding their headline show as a "the highlight of their career".
MTV News UK caught up with the supergroup backstage at the venue, where McFly drummer Harry Judd said: "We come to these things as a band on the line-up playing the sort of B-stage, but we are here headlining Hyde park and it has kind of surpassed our expectations.
Busted boy James Bourne agreed: "I mean, you play football in the park, eat ice cream in the park, but play a gig for thousands of people in the park. You don’t do that whenever you want, whenever you choose. That’s like something that comes along... (it's a) Special moment. Very special."
With rumours of a new joint album bubbling away online, we just had to ask the band whether fans can expect to hear any fresh tunes on Sunday, to which Harry replied: "I think were just going to do the old hits… We are going to keep it fun.
"The last thing we want is to say here is a new song, and people to go, 'let's go and get a burger'."
Judd continued: "So unless we have hits we will be playing the same songs forever", before Matt Willis laughed: "McBusted only play hits!"They went on to reveal that when it comes to new material, fans may have to wait a little while longer as they have been too busy touring to hit the studio.
However, Harry teased: "We’re working on it and we’ll see, you know, we want it to be mega so, we are kind of in the process."
Danny Jones concluded: "I suppose we will focus on what comes next. I mean, we are always writing songs, so we will probably sit down after the show - the highlight of our career - and go to the drawing board as they say."
We can't wait to hear it…
