Rounding off a fantastic weekend of music, Chantry Park came alive tonight to the sounds of McBusted.
The enthusiasm came off the combined forces of McFly and Busted in waves and with hits such as Air Hostess, All About You and Star Girl they had the crowd enthralled from start to finish.
McFly and Busted have always been linked, each writing songs for the other group, so it was only a matter of time before they eventually worked together.
Kicking off the night with the Busted hit Air Hostess, the guys launched into a series of hit songs from both bands.
With Danny Jones taking over most of Charlie Simpson’s vocals after he chose not to reunite with his former bandmates, the crowd really got going when the boys performed McFly’s superb hit Shine a Light before a cover of I Want You Back by Jackson 5 and photobombing the crowd’s selfies.
Showing highlights from Tom Fletcher’s now infamous wedding speech, it was the perfect time for the Busted boys to launch into Crashed the Wedding, with Matt Willis even appearing on stage in a wedding dress.
Who knows what the future holds, whether the two bands will go their separate ways or if the six-piece will stay together, but I think I speak for all of Chantry Park when I say we would definitely be more than happy to see McBusted continue on.
