Expect a shamelessly nostalgic set full of everyone’s favourite Busted and McFly hits alongside material from their self titled McBusted album.

Pop star Jessie J will headline the Saturday night, despite a recent spell in hospital which led to the cancellation of a series of shows.

The singer performed at the 2012 Olympics in London and has played on festival stages across the world while also finding time to act as a coach and mentor on television show The Voice.

Alfie Boe’s distinctive voice has helped him conquer the world’s most prestigious opera stages, lead the cast of Les Miserables for nearly a year and wow crowds at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert.
