Over the last couple of years, we have been subjected to McBusted - the Frankenstein's Monster comprised of members of McFly and Busted.

Now, however, it seems that Busted are going it alone and have reunited with their original vocalist/guitarist Charlie Simpson for a new arena tour - their first in 12 years.

Simpson originally left the pop band to front Fightstar, but has come back around to the idea of making lots and lots of money with his bandmates James Bourne and Matt Willis. New music is also on the way, apparently.

They'll play the SSE Arena in Belfast on May 30th, and Dublin's 3Arena on May 31st.

Tickets are €53.15/£41.50 including booking fee (additional charges may apply), on sale this Friday at 9am from usual outlets.
