Pigs Can Fly! Busted Announce Tour Name As They Reunite With Charlie Simpson.

We thought it might NEVER happen, but all three members of Busted are ACTUALLY heading out on the road.

Busted band reunion

After vowing that he would never return to Busted 'in a million years', Charlie Simpson is ready to head out on the road with his former bandmates, James Bourne and Matt Wilis for the first time in ten years.

The noughties pop band, famed for hits such as 'Year 3000' and 'Air Hostess', have announced their hugely anticipated arena tour will be called 'Pigs Can Fly'.

Speaking on the inspiration behind their tongue-and-cheek tour name, Charlie explained: "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!"

The 18 date tour will see the boys perform at cities across the country including Glasgow, Sheffield, Birmingham and London where they'll take to the stage at famed venues the 02 and Wembley arena.

While bandmates Matt Willis and James Bourne went on to join superband McBusted (with the rest of McFly and TOM FLETCHER), Charlie, 30, left the band back in 2005 to pursue a more serious music career with his band 'Fightstar' before attempting a solo career.


The news comes after a series of rumours last year that speculated the band's reunion, while our fave celeb daddy, Tom Fletcher hinted back in October that Charlie Simpson would be making a comeback.


Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Charlie freakin Simpson!...or so rumour has it.

Guess we'll have 'Year 3000' stuck in our heads for the rest of the day then...
