Charlie Simpson Reunites With Busted

(TeamRock Radio) Fightstar mainman Charlie Simpson has rejoined Busted for a 13-date arena tour of the UK and Ireland. Simpson left the pop punk boyband in 2005 and vowed never to return. But at a press conference in London, Simpson joined Matt Willis and James Bourne to announce the 2016 tour, which kicks off at Wembley Arena on May 11.

Explaining his decision to rejoin the group, Simpson says: "Staying in the band at that time could have risked our friendship. I've lost count of the number of times where I've said publicly I wouldn't do this again. But I have changed my mind."

The trio also confirmed they were working on new material. Willis and Bourne are also members of McBusted - a hybrid group featuring members of Busted and McFly. It's not clear what Busted's reunion means for McBusted's future. Read more including the tour dates here.
