The news has hit that everyone’s favourite wedding-crashing threesome Busted are finally making a comeback, and to say we’re excited is an understatement.
Devastation hit in 2005 when Charlie left the band to pursue other musical ventures, and despite the others joining McFly for a mega-band McBusted tour in recent years, this is what we’ve been waiting for. Let’s take a look at some of our favourite band reunions.
In honour of their return Busted have to make the list. After Charlie’s shock exit in 2005 many of us were devastated, and the void was temporarily filled by McBusted’s mammoth tour. But now they are back, announcing tour dates starting in May 2016. Get ready to grab those tickets.
Britpop icons Blur were one of the most popular bands of the 90s, but when they split in 2004, it looked like that was it. Solo albums and cheese-making success (for Alex James) showed that they all still had it, and they reunited for the 2012 Olympics in a one-off. But earlier this year they surprised the world with a whole new album.
3. Spice Girls
Girl Power made a comeback in 2007 when Spice Girls released a new single and embarked on a massive world tour. Re-claiming their position as the best girlband in the world (in my opinion), the band brought out all the classics as well as Headlines, their new single. What happened next was a performance at the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony and a musical, Viva Forever, and, earlier this year, rumours of another reunion. Please say it’s true.
4. Take That
After splitting in 1996, the ultimate 90s Brit boyband made a return to the stage (minus Robbie Williams) 10 years later. Their comeback was hugely successful, with countless hits and tours. Robbie finally returned in 2010 for 4 years, before leaving Gazza and co again in 2014, taking Jason Orange with him. The remaining three are still up and running, as it seems Take That will never truly die.
