McFly, Busted and Backstreet Boys to perform in Weston
09:06 27 January 2014
TWO of the UK’s biggest acts – McFly and Busted – have joined forces for a special outdoor live show on Weston’s beach and will be joined by one of the biggest boy bands of all time.
The two groups – who on tour will be known as McBusted – will be lighting up the stage with America’s sensational Backstreet Boys in a second show from AEG Live.
The company has already announced it will be presenting a new pop show on the beach in June called the South West Live show, featuring Jessie J, Jason Derulo and The Saturdays, and will hold a second the day before, on June 28.
McBusted and the Backstreet Boys will also be joined by Scouting For Girls, 5IVE and Britain’s Got Talent winners and dance act Diversity.
Tickets will go on sale on Friday and to find out more about the show, with an interview from McBusted, pick up a copy of the Mercury on Thursday.
