Emily Eavis: Glastonbury Acts Like Ed Sheeran Help Raise '£2million Every Year' For Charity


Kiefer Sutherland Busted Sophie Ellis-Bextor Birdy Scouting For Girls

Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis has praised Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters and Radiohead for donating their feed to a £2million charity pot.

Headliners of the iconic music festival miss out on huge performance fees in favour of allowing Emily and her dad, Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis, to make a whopping donation to good causes every year and she says it is the ''absolute, most paramount'' aspect of the music extravaganza.

Speaking to BBC Radio 6 music, she said: ''The charity thing is the absolute, most paramount thing of the biggest importance, really. The most important part of the festival is the fact that we can give that money to charity. It makes it all totally worthwhile. We try to give £2million per year, and on a wet year it's harder because it costs more, but we give as close to £2million as we can.''

McFly To Experiment With Next Record


McFly Tom Fletcher McBusted Busted

McFly have teased that their new music could be a departure from their previous rock pop sound.

The 'Obviously' hitmakers - comprised of Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Harry Judd and Dougie Poynter - are feeling less ''pressured'' to produce a record of a ''particular'' style and so they've decided to experiment.

Tom, 31, said: ''There's been such a big gap between McFly's albums, that now we're at the stage where we're not tied down to a particular sound.

All You Need To Know About McBusted's New Album


McBusted McFly Busted James Bourne Matt Willis

Only a year has passed since the epic announcement that former Busted members, James Bourne and Matt Willis, would join forces with UK popstars McFly, and its been a pretty wild ride for the McBusted group since then. It only makes sense now that things get even crazier as the band has finally announced their debut album, set for release on December 3.

McBustedMcBusted are releasing their new album next month

The self-titled record, which will be distributed via Island Records, will be the first official McBusted release, but it'll also be the first album in general from all of the guys in quite a while. The last we heard from McFly was 2010's Above the Noise, while James Bourne released his Future Boy solo album in the same year as well. It's more of a musical homecoming for Matt Willis, however, as his last material came in the form of his excellent solo effort back in 2006.

Since Busted, Where Has Charlie Simpson Been?


Charlie Simpson Fightstar Busted McBusted

McBusted - the pop supergroup combination of boybands McFly and Busted - have been selling out arenas all over the world since their inception back in November 2013. However, along with the announcement of McBusted's birth, it was obvious that the group would be missing a key component: former Busted member Charlie Simpson. He had his reasons for not taking part in the reunion, but what's the popstar turned rocker been up to as of late?

Charlie Simpson PicCharlie Simpson just released his second album, 'Long Road Home'

It's no secret - Simpson was the reason behind Busted's demise so many years ago, but his departure led to taking his music career to new heights. He then became the frontman of alternative rock band Fightstar, and they quickly became a force in the genre, as well as charts in the UK. Eventually, his horizons expanded even further: Simpson began posting solo demos on his MySpace page, and it ended up leading to his first solo album, Young Pilgrim, in 2011. Young Pilgrim was a landmark in Simpson's career for sure, and it allowed the songwriter to delve into a deeper aspect of his music - trading screams and electric guitars for acoustics and more softer songs. Young Pilgrim peaked at number six on the UK album charts, but he also found some success in America as well. In the summer of 2013, Simpson traveled across the U.S. on the Vans Warped Tour, playing an acoustic set at a number of dates to a very well received crowd. In a way, you might even say that Simpson found more success in the States than he ever did in Busted.

After Taking Over Arenas, McBusted Will Take Over The Studio


McBusted McFly Busted

It just keeps getting better in the world of McBusted. The pop-rock supergroup combination of McFly and Busted has been selling out arenas for the past few months all across Europe, and what originally just started out as an idea has been fleshed out into a full-blown phenomenon, and it can only grow from here. McBusted came to fruition officially on November 11 2013, when it was announced that the group would be taking on tour of eleven shows that eventually developed into a total of 35. Starting in April and ending in early June, the shows have been met with critical acclaim.

McBusted PictureMcBusted has been selling out arenas for their current tour

“This tour could easily have been joyless and desperate,” said a review on The Guardian. “Instead, the show is fun and idiosyncratic, this six-headed pop conglomerate proving far greater than the sum of its parts.” McBusted, however, is without a third of the original Busted members. Charlie Simpson (unsurprisingly) opted not to take part in the McBusted festivities, but he at least got a decent sum of money to let them carry on the name. It isn’t stopping Busted in its current iteration to continue its juggernaut status that it had in the early 2000’s. McFly, on the other hand, seemed to be on their way out after a couple of dud albums, but it seems like McBusted is reviving both bands and making them better than ever.

McBusted announce the biggest show of their careers as they prepare for British Summertime Hyde Park in London on July 6th 2014.

McFly and Busted have taken the world by storm since they decided to team up as McBusted (minus Charlie Simpson), so much so that they have been forced to extend their original 9-date tour next year to 32 dates, to their utter amazement. And things are only getting better for this newfound supergroup as they were recently told they'd be headlining at the British Summertime Hyde Park next year, with special guests fellow boyband Backstreet Boys.

They have been posting messages to their followers on Twitter about a major announcement, yesterday (December 8th 2013) revealing, 'We have HUGE announcement to make on Monday morning...we cannot wait to tell you about it!' and eventually confirming, 'Have you heard? MCBUSTED ARE HEADLINING @BSTHydePark on Sunday 6th July.... Tickets go on sale Friday at 9am!' Their combined Twitter account also saw various re-tweets from each of the band members expressing their insatiable excitement.
