#EventSpeaks: McBusted @ Brighton Centre, Brighton

I went to see McBusted perform at Brighton Centre on 7th April 2015 and they were phenomenal!

They were supported by American band Symmetry and UK band New City Kings. Symmetry were decent however quite generic emo-pop with a high-pitched vocalist, while New City Kings were more alternative rock with well-crafted songs.

The highlights of the show had to be; Dougie jumping on Matt’s back and playing Matt’s bass while clinging onto him; Danny picking up a huge bra and holding it to his chest saying, “massive”; James riding a bicycle around the stage; the harmonies they performed during an instrumental break in Air Hostess; James’ use of an auto-tune microphone for Riding On My Bike, but afterwards stating “this thing makes singing so easy,” before breaking into some choruses of songs like Cher’s Believe, Usher’s OMG and Eiffel 65’s Blue (Da Ba Dee) and the fact that their stage was massive, working computer game!!! Also their stage presence was fantastic and the chemistry between them made it all the more enjoyable!

The show began with McBusted’s first single, Air Guitar, which started with a superb entrance (see below)!

They then performed several Busted and McFly hits before performing a standout track from their debut album (McBusted)What Happened To Your Band? – this song particularly stands out due to their fantastic harmonising at the end of the song.

Another highlight of the show had to be their hilarious introduction to Busted’s Crashed The Wedding, as they came out like a wedding procession…naturally Matt Willis was marrying Dougie Poynter!

Finally, one of their other, most memorable songs of the evening (and clearly a crowd-pleaser due to the audience’s immense reaction) was Busted hit, Air Hostess.
