‘Well spank my a** and call me Charlie Simpson’ – Dougie Poynter
If you cast your minds back to, erm, April, you might recall that we bopped along to McBusted’s Most Excellent Adventure Tour at London’s O2 Arena, and had probably one of the best night’s of our lives.
The show was fun, fresh, gave us a whole load of feels and, you’ll be pleased to know, is now available to buy on DVD, giving you, the fans, the opportunity to relive that pretty awesome night whenever and wherever you want to.
However, if the promise of six super hotties singing catchy-as-heck songs whilst they frolic around on a stage isn’t quite enough to convince you to give the DVD a go, here are a few more reasons why you, yes you, should snap up a copy pronto:
McBusted’s first tour saw the boys perform an entire show comprised only of Busted and McFly songs of yesteryear, y’know, considering they didn’t have any tracks of their own just yet.
However, this time around there is an entire album of McBusted originals that have been thrown into the mix to really get the party started. From angsty anthems like ‘Hate Your Guts’ to schmoozy ballads like ‘Beautiful Girls Are The Loneliest’, you’re sure to find a new fave live song.
Oh, and of course these are all expertly mixed into an assortment of old faves, such as Year 3000, 3AM, All About You, and Shine A Light.
In short, there really is something for everyone.
McBusted called all of their onstage paraphernalia ‘gimmicks’ in their own words, and there are even more this time around than there were for the band’s first tour – and that included an actual UFO and humongous boobs.
For the MEAT tour McBusted decided to take us all on a walk down memory lane with a whole load of nostalgic references to popular culture – from classic video games like Super Mario and Street Fighter, to 90s TV shows like Saved By The Bell, there is plenty going on on the big screens to give this particular concert a little something extra to the ones where people just kind of stand around and sing.
On top of all of that, there is also a flying car and an entire fake wedding – with the DVD allowing us all to get a close up look of the boys donning their best bridesmaid dresses as they make their way onto the stage.
What’s not to love, eh?
Kisscam during All About You is also enough to give us all the lovey dovey feels, and with pretty much every member of the band opting to stare at the screen during their performance, including poor Harry Judd practically straining his neck to catch a glimpse from his drumkit, all of ’em got a good look when Dougie Poynter’s younger sister, Jazzie, popped up on the screen.
Needless to say, things get a little bit awkward…
On top of the gimmicks, the boys themselves actually bring a whole load of fun to the entire performance, which is probably a testament to the fact that they’re actual bezzie mates in actual real life.
As well as looking like they are having the time of their life whilst performing to a sold out arena of dedicated and loyal fans, the boys aren’t afraid to crack a few jokes and poke fun at themselves and each other.
Dougie’s opening line is a jibe at former Busted bandmate Charlie Simpson, for Pete’s sake!
There are also challenges for Matt Willis to rap, Danny Jones getting the giggles mid-performance and having to start it all again, and so many other quick jokes and witty one-liners which will reinforce exactly why you fell in love with these boys in the first place.
Which was probably over a decade ago.
The fun that they have while performing is completely infectious and translates perfectly from the live environment to the small screen, which means that no matter when or where you watch their show, you are guaranteed to have a pretty massive smile on your face.
And what better reason is there than that, hm?
