Busted’s concert at De Montfort Hall is an economic opportunity for the city

By Luke Smith

The upcoming concert of world famous boy band Busted at De Montfort Hall has got lots of fans battling over tickets, but one student believes it could have a positive effect in a different way for the city.img_0246

Ben Bristow, a 19-year-old Media student at De Montfort University believes that the up-coming visit of the much-loved boy band will also provide an economic surge for the city of Leicester.

He said: “I believe that the influx of the band’s fans being directed into the city will help improve the level of business for the local bars and restaurants in Leicester, which will overall help the city grow economically, plus I’m excited to have the chance to see world class music acts at a venue so close to where I live!”

The concert will take place on Wednesday, February 1 at 7pm and tickets are still available.

It is part of their UK headline tour after releasing their first single in over a decade, On What You’re On.

This comes ahead of the eagerly anticipated release of their third album, Night Driver, due to be released on November 11 this year.

Busted, formed in 2000 in Southend-On-Sea, reformed in late 2015 following a break in 2005. The band had a number of hit singles, including Year 3000, Crashed The Wedding and That’s What I Go to School For, and have been signed to a number of hit record labels including Island records, Sony and Warner.


Tickets are still available from the De Montfort Hall Website or by phoning the box office on 0116 233 3111.
