Brace for a new blast of noughties pop-punk nostalgia courtesy of Busted. The UK mega-act, who exploded onto the scene in the early 2000’s with their debut single ‘What I Go To School For’, are still kickin’ and coming to Australia for the very first time this October to play a trio of headline dates across the East Coast.

Busted’s debut Australian tour will kick off on Wednesday, 30th October at Melbourne’s Forum, before moving to Brisbane’s Eatons Hill Hotel Ballroom on Friday, 1st November, and wrapping up at Sydney’s The Roundhouse on Sunday, 3rd November.

Busted will be supported at all dates by homegrown pop-punk rising stars Between You & Me.

“Finally…. Can’t believe Busted have never actually played in Australia,” Busted said in a press statement. “We are so excited to get over to the east coast this Oct/Nov. It’s gonna be mega! Let’s jump around and lose our minds!!! Busted are fully back!”

It comes after the trio marked their 20th anniversary last year by releasing their Greatest Hits LP, which went #1 in their native UK.

Over their 20+ year career, Busted have had four UK number one-singles, two BRIT awards, and sold over 5 million records worldwide with their four studio albums.
