We took a trip to the year 3000 with Busted and they’re still exactly what we go to school for


So last night we took a trip to the year 3000 with these guys…

N.B. The year 3000 is not black and white (but it is underwater… 😄)

In case you hadn’t heard, Busted are officially back, and they mean business. We caught up with the guys last month to chat about their plans. Read the full interview here.

The absolute babes that they are, they also gave us tickets to see their show at Sandown Park Racecourse last night and let’s just say we were a teensy bit excited.

But could the performance measure up to our anticipation?

That would be a yes… a BIG FAT YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!!!!

We can confirm that Busted are still 100% what we go to school for.

This gig was a wake up call to all those who question whether Busted are still relevant. The crowd was a mix of all ages. Of course there were people who grew up with Busted, but they also attracted a younger audience. Good pop is good pop after all.

Everybody loved their classic uptempo stuff. Who can resist a bit of ‘Crashed the Wedding’.

Or ‘Year 3000’. Still a massive tune!

But the crowd also had a lot of time for sing-along ballads like ‘Sleeping with the Light On’ and ‘Who’s David’.

One of the funniest moments was when James claimed that ‘Thunderbirds Are Go’ was Matt Willis’ favourite song to perform… to his clear disgust. Don’t be mad, Matt. Stop the hating. Looks like he enjoyed it in the end anyway.

And so did we. Top marks on every account. Busted are officially back!Can’t wait for Busted’s new album? Tweet us @maximumpop and we’ll be happy to play the waiting game with you.
