Just to make people aware, if you're not on O2 I wouldn't specifically buy an O2 PAYG Sim for the tickets. The system they use is very intricate and clever; it takes into account price plan, spend, use etc and then creates a 'random' waiting room based on that. If you're on a PAYG with a minimum one off top up, you'll be at the back of an extraordinarily long queue. Moreover, there's only normally a small percentage of tickets allocated for pre-sale.

As for McBusted - very exciting indeed.

Can't think of anything worse.

2 manufactured "bands" put together on the same stage for the sheer purpose of fleecing people of £££.

How much are tickets for this? £40 plus booking fees? Daylight robbery. 

Now if Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin put together a super group, that would truly be the definition of of the term!

I completely disagree! I think the price is very reasonable, especially compared to the price of tickets for people like Beyonce!

My friends and I got tickets this morning on pre-sale :)

I have seen a wide variety of bands in concert, and I can honestly say I've never been disappointed by McFly on any of the numerous occasions I've seen them live. The shows are always varied, the guys are hilarious and talented and have gone from strength to strength.

Are they truly a 'supergroup'? No probably not, it's more just 2 of the guys from Busted who have always worked behind the scenes with McFly jumping on their coat tails while they're popular. Will it be an entertaining evening for those who enjoy the music? Undoubtedly.

ooo! How I am jealous! I've got to wait until 9am! Hopefully I will get some tickets! I have seen McFly once many years ago and can't wait to see them and another childhood favorite!

I despise this whole thing. McFly and Busted were/are two of the most shamelessly manufactured 'bands' of our time, and this takes it to a whole new level of turd/cheese. And don't even get me started on the name...

For the reasons above, I really respect Charlie Simpson for staying out of it for whatever reason - presumably turning down a sizeable paycheck in the process. Now if he could just get his arse in gear and bring us another Fightstar album... :P

I think everyone who likes Busted/McFly should check out a band from back in 2000 called The Dum Dums. Their most famous song was "Can't Get You Out of My Thoughts" and I defy anyone to tell me it sounds any different to the much later Busted and McFly.

Unfortunately, the Dum Dums hit the market at the wrong time and no one wanted poppy punk.
