Busted name reunion tour

By | Published on Tuesday 5 April 2016


Busted have announced that they’re calling their upcoming reunion dates the ‘Pigs Can Fly’ tour. Presumably because ‘We Never Thought We’d Need The Cash This Badly’ was a bit wordy. I’m joking, of course. I already know the reason why, because Charlie Simpson told me (in a press release).

“We’re calling the tour ‘Pigs Can Fly’ because it just goes to show that anything can happen”, says Simpson. “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!”

It’s nice that they’re all having such a nice time, isn’t it? Here are those dates, expanded from the initial announcement last year:
