Lifestyle // McBusted!

A little bit of a different post today, but I really wanted to tell you about what I did last Friday night in Manchester, which, as I'm sure you may have guessed, was see the best super-group ever, McBusted! 

I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that as a young girl, I was obsessed with the chart-topping trio of lads, Busted. They were everything, with their lyrics being my childhood bible, and their CDs being virtually all that played on my portable CD walkman (ah, memories). I also had a huge crush on Matt Willis, so endless posters of his face plastered my walls - which was probably a bit creepy haha! 
McFly were less of an obsession for me, I think that the fact they were a little bit later than Busted almost meant I'd passed that 'scarily obsessive' stage, however I can't say the same for my little sister, who has seen the band a few too many times than she'd probably like to admit, and attended countless book signings just to catch a glimpse of the lads. 

Anyway, it couldn't have been more perfect for to hear that both bands were joining together to form the ultimate hybrid super-group, and although I was a little but gutted that third Busted member Charlie was no longer a part of it, I couldn't wait for the tickets to go on sale, and when they did, that was that; me, my mum and my sister, all re-living our younger years!

We booked tickets for the 9th May at the Manchester Phones 4 U Arena, and on the Friday night after I finished work, we set off on the train to our destination. As we weren't too bothered about seeing the support act, we turned up at about 8, got some drinks in, and then went straight to our seats. Although we were far back and very high up (I did go a bit dizzy when standing up to dance) it didn't matter, because the show was absolutely AMAZING! I was a little bit worried that it just wouldn't be as good as I remembered as a child - you know the saying- if it ain't broke don't fix it, but I needn't have bothered worrying, because it wasn't as good, it was 100x better! 

The boys kicked off the show in an amazing 'Back to the Future' style car, and at one point, descended from the ceiling in a UFO! They was absolutely incredible, and well worth the £45 odd I paid for a ticket. Everyone was stood up dancing- cue some seriously embarrassing 'rocking out' on my behalf, and all the classics from both bands were played, my absolute favourite being the obvious Year 3000.

We had an absolutely ace night, so thanks to the boys for taking me back to my childhood days, and putting on an unbelievable show- they are still touring, so if you haven't already got your tickets, I'd recommend you get them now!

Have you been to see, or are you planning to see McBusted? What were your thoughts on the show...?!x
