Busted to play Brighton
Busted have confirmed a date at The Brighton Centre on Tuesday, February 14.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, October 14 on 0844 847 1515 or http://www.brightoncentre.co.uk.
Spokeswoman Gemma Hook said: “Following the release of their first brand-new single in over a decade, the disco-tinged new single, ‘On What You’re On’, pop trio Busted are pleased to announce a UK headline tour. The string of dates will kick off at Norwich’s NEA on 29 January and will include performances in prestigious theatres across the country including London’s Hammersmith Eventim Apollo on 3 February before wrapping up on 1 March in Dublin. The twenty-one date tour announcement comes ahead of the release of their eagerly anticipated third album ‘Night Driver’ on 11 November via East/West Records.
“Now, with a decade of experiences and newly discovered influences behind them, the two-time BRIT Award winning trio reunited in the studio almost by accident and discovered they each had a fresh perspective both personally and musically.”
Band member Matt said: “As soon as we started making music it became very apparent that we all wanted to make exactly the same thing. That’s what made it so easy. Once James got on the Juno-60 we were like, ‘this is the sound of our record, this is exactly the kind of record I wanna make’.
“The last thing we wanted to do was try to recreate what we used to have,” says James. “It belongs to that time. All real artists evolve, all real artists try things, it’s unnatural not to.”
James, Matt and Charlie first broke onto the music scene in 2002 with their tongue-in-cheek ode to Matt’s school teacher Miss MacKenzie, ‘What I Go To School For.’ Within just two years the three-piece had become the biggest band in the country, with four number one singles, two triple platinum albums, a total of five million records sold, and over 750,000 ticket sales including and a record-breaking run of thirteen Wembley Arena shows.
