McBusted to perform for first time on Children in Need this Friday
The band will perform four Busted and McFly songs
Pop ‘supergroup’ McBusted will make their first TV performance this Friday on BBC Children in Need.
The group, made up of noughties boy bands McFly and Busted, will play a number of their hits on the live TV show this Friday, 15 November.
The boy bands last shared a stage in September when Busted’s Matt Willis and James Bourne performed with McFly during the latter’s 10th anniversary gigs at the Royal Albert Hall.
Earlier this week, the two boy bands announced they were joining to go on tour together in 2014 as McBusted.
At a press conference introducing the band, Tom Fletcher of McFly said: “For now it's just the tour, but if we come up with something and write some songs that we think are incredible, then we'll release it. We're just excited about touring for now and we'll play the rest by ear.”
Charlie Simpson, who left Busted in 2005 to pursue a career with band Fightstar, will not be joining the ‘superband’ on tour, but wished them well.
“Just wanted to say that though I am not joining Matt Willis and James Bourne on their new venture I wish them all the very best with it!” he wrote on Twitter.
