Busted will headline Hampton Court Palace Festival for the first time on June 8
Busted will headline Hampton Court Palace Festival.
The pop punk trio – comprised of Charlie Simpson, Matt Willis and James Bourne – will make their debut at the royal landmark's summer concert series on June 8.
The 'Year 3000' hitmakers recently reached number two in the Official UK Chart with their LP 'Half Way There', and they plan to perform some songs from the record as well as their greatest hits, which include 'What I Go To School For' and 'Air Hostess', on the night.
The final headline announcement comes after Michael Ball & Alfie Boe were confirmed to perform on the last night of the festival.
The classical duo will round off an impressive month of music at the palace in June, which sees the likes of Nile Rodgers & Chic, Kylie Minogue, The Jacksons and Tears For Fears perform, on June 22.
The pair – who were named Best Group at the 2018 Classic BRIT Awards, and have had two number one albums to their name – last played the idyllic Palace Gardens in 2017.
Nile Rodgers and his band recently added a second show at the extravaganza due to demand.
The 'Le Freak' hitmakers – who released their first album in 25 years, 'It's About Time', in September – sold out their first date on June 14, and will play a second concert at the 3,000 capacity Base Court – one of the Tudor courtyards in the stunning grounds of the historical landmark – on June 15.
Caro Emerald will play the festival on June 12, jazz star Jools Holland performs on June 6, new-wave pioneers Tears For Fears on June 18 and 19, and pop legends The Jacksons on June 7.
Kylie will headline on June 20 and 21, for what will be the Australian pop princess' only London dates of the summer.
The finale night will also see a fireworks spectacular over the palace.
Tickets for Busted's show go on sale on Friday (22.03.19) from 10am.
