Busted Announce That Pigs Can Fly

They announced their surprise return to the music scene late last year to a phenomenal response from fans and media alike.

Now today Busted announce that their hugely anticipated upcoming Arena tour will be called 'Pigs Can Fly'.

Explaining the name Charlie Simpson said: "We're calling the tour 'Pigs Can Fly' because it just goes to show that anything can happen! None of us thought we'd ever tour together again, and it's been an amazing journey getting back to this point. We can't wait to get out on the road!"

Busted today also announced that special tickets for the tour will go on sale soon offering fans the chance to actually be part of the show. For the first time ever in concert history fans will be able to interact with the show from part of the actual stage.

Also announced today are the tour's special guests Wheatus (Teenag Dirtbag) and YouTube sensation Emma Blackery, who will join the band across UK and Ireland.

It’s the reunion they said could never happen - even the members themselves have admitted it - by Matt, James and Charlie are returning to the road with a full UK arena tour, their first in 12 years. Wednesday 11th May 2016 will be their first show together in 12 years – and the first time in 12 years anyone will be able to see the three members play all their greatest hits together live – among them the simply huge, unforgettable smashes “What I Go To School For”, “Crashed The Wedding”, “You Said No”, “Air Hostess” and “Year 3000.”

For the gig Busted will return to the home of their biggest triumph, the venue where anybody last saw them – Wembley Arena. It was here that they broke a record in 2004 by selling out an incredible 12 shows. And it’s here that they will make their long overdue comeback.

With an incredible five million record sales, two 4 x platinum albums and four number one singles to their name, a staggering 700,000 concert tickets sold in one year, two BRIT Awards and a Record of the Year Award, Busted are one of the biggest home-grown pop acts of the 21st century.
