It’s happening!!

Busted has confirmed that they will be reuniting for a 15-show tour and brand new album for their 20 year anniversary.

Following a cryptic message to fans, the musical trio have officially brought the band back together.

Matt Willis, Charlie Simpson and James Bourne are heading on tour in September around the UK – and it’s not only their own songs they’ll be releasing.

Their brand new album is set to feature new versions of their own iconic hits as well as bringing McFly and All Time Low on board for it.

And the best news? Busted fans won’t have to wait for tickets to go on sale as they will be available from 9am on March 31st.

“It’s out of this world that we get to do this and we couldn’t be more excited about it. It’s going to be wicked,” James said.

Matt added to The Sun: “Now it feels like it’s meant to feel. It’s like the very beginning all over again. Right now it feels like it’s barely even begun.”

Earlier this week, Busted had fans going wild when they hinted that a reunion tour could be on the cards.

Sharing a video on social media, it showed a VHS cassette tape being inserted into a retro TV unit. The TV then goes static before the band’s logo appears and the video ends.

Busted came onto the scene in 2002, dropping hits like Year 3000, Air Hostess and What I Came To School For.

They saw massive success in the UK and Ireland, leading them to work with close friends McFly (even joining a supergroup with them back in 2013).

Their hit Year 3000 was also a massive hit in the US when an up-and-coming Jonas Brothers covered the song and released it there.
