Ahead of their O2 gig on Monday June 2, Tom from McBusted took a break to talk on the phone to our Barbara George and here’s what he had to say for himself . . .
Barbara George (BG): Are you excited about coming about coming to Dublin and what can we expect from the gig?
Tom (T): We’re extremely excited about coming to Ireland. We’re right at the end of our tour now and we’re very well rehearsed. We’ve been on tour for the last two-and-and-a-half months or so and it’s just been the most insane tour ever. The crowds have so much energy and it’s the biggest show we’ve ever put on – it’s a real show, it’s not just, like, a concert. There’s a lot of good stuff, and it’s high-energy.
BG: What’s the stage show like and what’s the craziest thing a fan has done at one of your shows?
T: There’s all kinds of things brewing up on stage. One fan tried to get on stage the other night. We have explosions and all sorts of stuff on stage, and that’s quite scary.
BG: So it’s been good so far?
T: It’s been amazing. The response from the crowds has been incredible because we didn’t know what the reaction was going to be; we didn’t know if it was going to be McFly fans, or if it was going to be a lot older people who were Busted fans ten years ago. But it was like a whole new generation of fans that are coming. It’s like they were two years old when Busted were around. It’s a real mix and we’re very lucky. We’re loving every minute of it. We’ll be sad when the tour comes to an end.
BG: Are there plans for the future as a group? Do you think you guys will continue on?
T: Yeah, well it seems likely. It’s been interesting. We didn’t know what the future held for McBusted after the tour, we were just enjoying it. But it seems to have captured everyone’s imagination. We’re loving it. We’re just having a great time. We’d love the idea of making an album. Just seeing where it goes.
