With the excitement of this year’s arena tour still ringing in fans’ ears nationwide, and almost exactly one year on from their formation, McBusted have announced their return to the live stage next spring.

And they will be playing at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on 24th March, followed by a date at Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena on 18th April.

McBusted announced their original 11-date arena tour of 2014 last November, with the initial dates selling out in an hour.

Due to the scale of demand from fans and the general public, the tour eventually played to a staggering 350,000 people across 35 shows, before culminating in a headline performance at Hyde Park in front of 60,000 people.

Now, armed with an eponymously-titled debut album, and a new single, Air Guitar, the six-piece amalgamation of Busted and McFly will play 13 more arena dates next year.

Every single moment of McBusted’s launch and first year as a band was captured by the band’s long-time friend and film maker David Spearing.

The result is the behind the scenes film TourPlay, which earlier this month received an exclusive limited release in Vue cinemas nationwide.

It will be released on DVD on 24th November.

Air Guitar is released on 23rd November with their debut album, McBusted, following on 1st December.

Tickets for their Sheffield date are priced at £41-25 to £45.65 and are available on 0114 2565656 or online at www.motorpointarenasheffield.co.uk.

Tickets for their Nottingham gig are £46.48 and available from the box office on 0843 3733000 or online at www.capitalfmarena.com/online/mcbusted
