James Bourne, Charlie Simpson, and Matt Willis crashed the 02 Arena on Sunday (September 10) for the first of Busted’s three London shows scheduled for this summer.

The beloved English pop-punk band played hits from their number one single-filled discography.

The London 02 show is believed to have sold out fast during the pre-sale stage, with only limited tickets now available for the remaining two dates in the capital.

The musicians are celebrating their 20th anniversary with an arena tour across the UK and a brand-new album of their reworked classics.

The tour will see the trio, made up of James Bourne, Charlie Simpson, and Matt Willis, play their biggest hits and fan favourites.

Here is a look at when their London concerts are, who their supporting acts will be, and what their setlist is likely to include.
