Busted have announced that they will perform at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall next year.
The band, who reformed for their first full-band UK tour in over a decade earlier this year, will bring their Night Driver tour to the Capital on Saturday 25 February. It will be the first time the band have played the iconic venue.
Announcing the tour via a video posted on the band’s social media channels this morning, bassist Matt Willis said: “We are very, very, very, very, very excited to announce that we are going back out on tour on the Night Driver Tour 2017. We are coming to some of the most intimate venues we have ever played – we wanted to get up close to you and spread Night Driver Love and we thought these places would be an epic start. Guys, we’ll see you on the road!”
The pop-rock band shot to fame in 2002 with the release of their first single, What I Go to School For but split only two years later when frontman Charlie Simpson quit the band to focus on his side-project band, Fightstar, full-time.
News of the tour comes as the band prepare to release their new album Night Driver, which comes out on Friday 11 November. It will be the band’s first album in 13 years.
