Backstreet Boys Will Support McBusted

Backstreet Boys Will Support McBusted

28 Jan 2014

The US boyband are going to be warming up for the newly made supergroup

In a strange twist of fate mediocre McBusted will play two outdoor concerts with support from the world renowned Backstreet Boys.

The supergroup, made up of members from McFly and Busted, will also be joined by Five, Diversity and Scouting For Girls at Weston-super-Mare Beach, England on 28 June and Ipswich Chantry Park on 29 June.

Despite being the biggest selling boyband in history, Backstreet Boys, who were listed to play in Dubai this year but were later cancelled, will oddly play the warm-up slot before the British band take to the stage.

In a statement, McBusted said: "We can't wait to be adding further outdoor shows and look forward to playing all the Mcfly and Busted hits." James Bourne and Matt Willis will represent Busted, while all the McFly boys, Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd, will take part.

Backstreet Boys, made up of Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson, will also embark on their own headline UK arena tour in March and April, which includes a date at The O2 in London.

They said: "For Weston-super-Mare we're going to feel right at home on the beach like our home state Florida! Let's make it an unforgettable beach party. We also haven't played on the East Coast of the UK before so we're looking forward to seeing all your faces and can't wait!"

Tickets for the gigs go on sale on Friday, visit to book.
