Tour is over so spoilers everywhereee :D
All the credit for the pics goes to David Munn


Having been practically swept into the ECHO arena thanks to the 70mph winds that have been battering Merseyside this week, there was no respite for the wind-weary crowd, as it was now McBusted’s turn to blow them away.

Following on from the unprecedented success of their first tour in 2014 (the boys were so in-demand that an 11-date tour quickly turned into 36), the Busted/McFly hybrid are back on the road, and with a new album to boot.

After an impressive opening set from support act New City Kings, there was in the form of trailers for various 89s teen movies; Teen Wolf, Bill and Ted, and of course, Back to the Future.

Then, the world’s biggest supergroup crashed onto the stage – which took the form of a giant arcade game, joysticks and all.

They opened with Air Guitar and Hate Your Guts, songs from their new album, but it wasn’t until the classics started, with One for the Radio and Thunderbirds are Go, that the show really took off.

And for all of the guitar jumps and bike rides, songs like 3am and Beautiful Girls are the Loneliest proved they’ve got serious vocal talent.

The six lads are obviously quite a bit older than they started, but they haven’t lost every of their adolescent energy and sense of humour. Crashed the Wedding brought a fake ceremony and McBusted in wedding dresses, while James zoomed around the stage on a BMX for Riding on My Bike.

Their Ringo Starr impressions are actually spot on, too.

As a band, they know what they are, and they know what has been said of them in the past, as demonstrated with the self-aware What Happened to Your Band.

It was all fun and games on the giant arcade game. Then the credit ran out. What to do? Hop into a Delorean to the other side of the arena.

When they emerged, they took us back to the early days of Busted with Air Hostess and What I Go To School For.

After an impromptu rendition of Wild Wild West (which Matt fluffed) they brought us McFly classic Obviously, which is so catchy that even the stage hands suspended in the ceiling were waving their hands.

The second half of the show was all about having fun with the audience, from the giant game of Street Fighter on the arcade machine stage (Tom, James and Danny won, taking them into the lead for the tour) and the Kiss Cam that was employed for All About You, with predictably sweet and awkward results.

The encore brought the show to an end with some of the band’s most popular hits, Five Colours in Her Hair, Shine a Light and Year 3000, a song so ludicrous it’s brilliant.

Exactly how much mileage you can get out of a supergroup remains to be seen. But in McBusted, you’ve got six lads who are having fun and enjoying their moment back in the spotlight.

Veredict: 4/5

Read below the interview Coup De Main did to the McBusted boys while they were in Australia.

Back in 2000, ‘What I Go To School For’ was released as the debut single of pop-band, Busted – which members James Bourne and Matt Willis made up two-thirds of.

Four years later, Busted’s brother-band McFly – Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter, Harry Judd and Tom Fletcher – released their debut single, ‘5 Colours in Her Hair’.

Fast-forward to November 2013, and the supergroup MCBUSTED was born. McFly and Busted had joined forces!

After a successful 2014 of sold-out UK shows galore, McBusted released their debut self-titled album in December of last year, and then found themselves supporting One Direction on the Australian leg of their ‘On The Road Again Tour’.

“I’m ready to come to New Zealand; I like it. I am in, I am coming…” – JAMES BOURNE

Coup De Main hung out with McBusted in Sydney and this is what happened…

We bet Doc Brown and Marty never imagined that the future held this, not even in their wildest dreams….

It’s 30 years since Marty McFly and Doc Brown took us Back to The Future in the Delorean and to celebrate ITV’s got something, err, special planned.
Celebrity Juice’s own Keith Lemon (who is apparently a massive BTTF fan) is set to host a 90-minute tribute to the film, with celebrity guests stepping in to fill the original actors’ shoes as he recreates the iconic scenes.

Paddy McGuinness will be taking a leaf out of Biff’s book while Gino D’Acampo swaps the kitchen for the lab as Doc Brown. And who else but McBusted – who have basically spent their entire career paying tribute to the movie – could perform that classic song, Johnny B. Goode?

Keith Lemon’s Back to the Future Tribute will air on ITV2 in the autumn

McBusted will rock Scarborough’s Open Air Theatre for the second year in a row – with a support act from last summer headlining the venue’s final gig.

The pop rockers, formed by members of chart toppers McFly and Busted, will play the venue on Saturday July 18.

And a Bank Holiday triple-header will see Scouting for Girls joined by The Hoosiers and X-Factor contestants Only The Young.

That gig, which will bring the curtain down on the 2015 programme, takes place on Sunday August 30.

Scouting for Girls also played the venue last year, albeit as a support act for Little Mix. They haven’t released any new music since.

The two newly announced shows are understood to be the final gigs announced for 2015.

They join a line-up that includes Sir Tom Jones, UB40, Elaine Paige James and Blue.

McBusted are currently on a lengthy arena tour, before jetting off to Europe to support One Direction a handful of stadium dates this summer.

Tickets for both shows go on sale on Saturday March 28.

See The Scarborough News on Thursday for further details.
