Finally, they’re coming to Ireland!

The Busted reunion is finally happening and we are absolutely buzzing.

The pop-punk trio confirmed that they will be reuniting for a 17-show tour and will release a brand new album for their 20 year anniversary this year.

It was touch and go at first because there were no Irish date released.

Now, it’s confirmed that Busted will play at the 3Arena, Dublin and SSE Arena, Belfast as part of 20th anniversary greatest hits arena tour.

Fans will still have a little bit of a wait with the first gig in Dublin to kick off on Friday October 6th followed by the Belfast show on Sunday October 8th.

Although it’s been twenty years since the band bounced to the charts, James Bourne, Charlie Simpson and Matt Willis will perform their much-loved bangers including ‘Year 3000’, ‘Sleeping With The Light On’ and ‘Thunderbirds Are Go’.

Playing 17 shows across the UK and Ireland with a combined audience of 170,000 people this September and October will be hard work but they’re also working on a brand new album.

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

The first track to launch the 20th anniversary celebrations will be a new version of Busted’s song ‘Loser Kid’ featuring Simple Plan, which will be released on April 14th – so not long left to wait.

The excitement for this is real.

Thankfully, loyal Busted fans don’t have to wait too long to get their hands on some tickets.

They go on sale Friday the 14th April at 9am so make sure you’re ready and waiting.

Tickets are from €49.65 including booking fee (subject to service charge).

VIP packages are available from €119 including booking fee (subject to service charge).
