#BEDM 8: That Time I Saw McBusted...

Friday, 9 May 2014


As soon as I heard that Mcfly and Busted were forming a Super group, I have to admit, I fan-girled pretty hard... When I was around 9/10/11ish, Busted were at the top of their game, and I was one of their biggest fans. The thing that really pained me when I was a child was that I never got to see them in concert. I used to watch Saturday morning TV EVERY WEEK, without fail, as they were always giving away tickets to Busted gigs, and I always called up, but never won. I'm not entirely sure why my mum never took me, but it just didn't happen. So imagine my excitement when I heard that they were going to come back in concert! I didn't even hesitate to buy tickets as soon as they were on sale, and all I had to do then, was wait.

On Wednesday that time finally arrived! Although we had standing tickets we had decided ages ago that we weren't going to go up early and wait, mainly because non of us could face the thought of sitting outside in the cold all day again. So we headed to Cardiff around 1pm, and got there for about 3:30pm. With plenty of time to spare, we had a mooch around the St. David's Shopping Centre, which is where I always park when we go to the Motorpoint Arena. We even had time to have a spot of dinner. We couldn't really make our minds up about what we wanted to eat, and so decided just to go to T.G.I Fridays.


Whenever I go to T.G.I Friday's I try a new cocktail. This time I opted for the bubblegum daiquiri, which came with a popping candy rim. This was much more like an alcohol slushie than a cocktail, but was yummy all the same. 


For my main I went for a French Dip burger with Sweet potato fries. The burger came with caramelised onions, swiss cheese, and a really meaty sauce. I was disappointed to find that the onions weren't caramelised, but were actually just fried, so I had to pick them out, other than that it was delicious!


Although I was absolutely stuffed, I couldn't help but have a brownie and popcorn sundae! To be honest I totally struggled to eat it all, but it was worth it!

After eating it was time to go over to the arena before the doors opened. My first stop was over to the Merch stand. I had heard from a friend that they were selling something called an 'OMFG Tin' with chances to win tickets into the OMFG Zone right in front of the stage. As soon as we saw this, me and my sister knew we were going to buy one! Not to mention you get some pretty cool stuff in the tins...


So this is what the tin looks like! I totally forgot to take a picture of the other side, but it's got pictures of all the boys on the other side, and it looks pretty damn cool in general... as does the stuff inside...


These guitar picks with the boys individual autographs on are pretty sweet too! Although I have promised these to Tim, I'm not sure I'll be able to part with them...


As well as the picks, there was a set of drumsticks with Harry's autograph printed on them. I'm not entirely sure what I am going to do with these, but they look pretty good right?


The final thing in the tin is this lovely poster of all the boys. I think the thing I love most about them, is that they are all just friends, and it really shows in this poster, and also in their performance.

All of that set me back a cool £20, but I lied... that wasn't the only thing I got in my tin... As soon as I got it, I opened it and I saw something colourful in the top of the tin...


I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that I had won OMFG Zone Tickets! I actually think my heart stopped beating for a moment... Of course I ran out to my sister and showed her, and let's just say there was a lot of jumping up and down and screaming. Unfortunately us winning these tickets did mean that Tim was on his own for the entire concert, but he was insistent that he didn't mind! To be honest the whole thing felt like a dream, mainly because me and my sister never win anything...


This was our original view, before we went and got our OMFG tin, not too far back to be honest, we were quite lucky...


This was our view from inside the OMFG Zone... we were second row. A lot of the people who were in front of us were the people who had actually paid full price for the OMFG Zone tickets... £150 they were... I didn't envy them...


This is me and my sister looking pretty smug about winning our tickets... I literally was SO EXCITED!

I wasn't disappointed, the concert was amazing, we saw everything perfectly clearly, and it certainly made up for my childhood dream of seeing Busted not being fulfilled until now... They played all the greatest hits from both Busted and Mcfly, all of my favourites, and I sang along to every single one!

I took about a million pictures and I don't really want to put them all up and bore you, but I picked a few of my favourites and made a nice collage so enjoy! Let me know in the comments if you like Mcfly or Busted, and what your favourite song is, I love reading your comments.
