So I heard this was a thing, and my first thoughts were: its gonna suck. As a kid I loved both Busted and Mcfly but I still thought McBusted was never gonna work.
Then I saw them play on Children in Need last night, and I was actually surprised by how good it was. I really like the memories of these Busted songs which used to be my favourite, and Air Hostess was epic.
Their energy and just the fact they are there makes it a lot more enjoyable.

I would like to see them not only tour together, but maybe release a single or two, and see how that goes. (Maybe a whole album, like Take That did with Robbie?)

Anyway what are your thoughts on McBusted?

He went solo and I think he was the main reason Busted split up so I assume he wouldn't want to reform.

A song and perhaps an Album but that's all.

Mcfly have their new single and 6th studio album out next Year (Feb) and a lot of Mcfly fans are happy to have this as a one-off but that it all.

Tom from Mcfly said that Mcfly will still be Mcfly.

McBusted are living proof that two negatives don't make a positive.

How can any McFly fan not like Busted? I mean, Busted practically made them. And they're almost the same band...

I quite liked Busted but not like Mcfly. They are not really the same band at all. Mcfly has a mixed sound and tried their hand at different styles of Music.
Sure they are mates and write together. (James written with Tom and Danny for Mcfly and Busted) but that's as far as it goes really.

I am going to see them on Tour but will be happy when Mcfly are back as Mcfly.
They have a passion for their fans,music and Band which is something Busted didn't have as much. Back in 2004 days Mcfly always stated they were in it for the long game and 10 years later.......Matt and James kinda confirmed this at Mcfly's 10th Birthday by saying Busted got on but mcfly are more like brothers.

If you're talking about them singing live, then I agree that they do sing live. However im on about playing instruments live. Just because you can see them playing doesnt mean anything! They may not have the guitars plugged in or at a really quiet volume so it looks like they're playing, but if they make a mistake you don't know because your not hearing it live.
I know that half the time, I can see no member playing a part of the song and the fact that in McBusted there are 3 guitarists and 2 bassists proves my point. They can't all be playing?

I was thinking about what their set list would be, and I realised Busted don't actually have that many hit songs. It would be mostly McFly songs even though everyone wants the Busted songs.

Year 3000, Crashed The Wedding, Air Hostess, Thunderbirds, What I go for School For, are the only ones I would consider worthy of being on this tour. Is that enough Busted songs?

No the fact that you were talking about playing live is why I replied that they do play their instruments live.

This is also why I said that anyone with a shred of musical knowledge can tell that they are playing live by watching AND listening!

I was the first person to raise the question of who in McBusted was not playing live. Not quite sure why you would assume it was the members of Busted.

Oh no they've not got many hit songs. Only nine top ten singles including 5 number ones. Not bad going from a band that only released two albums.

Do you actually have any idea what you're talking about at all?!

You mean you? NOT EVERYONE there is people not happy with them uniting. I don't have a problem with this being a one-off but that's it.

Mcfly should have more songs seeing as most of the fans there will likely be Mcfly fans anyway given they are current and been around the past decade. Plus Mcfly have 5 albums worth of songs and endless B-sides and extras.
