Following on from the release of their first single in over a decade, Busted will visit Aberdeen for the first time on Friday 24th February to take to the stage of Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre’s (AECC’s) GE Oil & Gas Arena with their ‘Night Driver’ UK Tour.
The band who shot to fame in 2002 with their tongue-in-cheek hit ‘What I Go to School for’, became one of the biggest bands in the country with four number one singles, two triple platinum albums and over 750, 000 ticket sales which included a record-breaking run of thirteen Wembley Arena shows.
Now with a decade of experience and newly discovered influences behind them, the two-time BRIT Award winning trio have reunited with fresh perspectives both personally and musically.
“As soon as we started making music it became very apparent that we all wanted to make exactly the same thing, ” Matt says. “That’s what made it so easy. Once James got on the Juno-60 we were like, ‘this is the sound of our record, this is exactly the kind of record I wanna make’.”
Senior Sales Manager at AECC, Anna Mackenzie said “This will be the first time Busted have ever visited Aberdeen on any of their tours and it is a great addition to the already fantastic line-up of events we have announced at the venue in 2017. Fans in the North-east will be delighted with this announcement ahead of the bands eagerly anticipated third album.”
Tickets for Busted’s ‘Night Driver’ UK Tour go on sale at 9am on Friday 14th October from www.ticketmaster.co.uk/AECC or 08444 77 9000.
