In the summer of 2014, the world’s ultimate supergroup hit the road. When McFly and Busted announced the birth of McBusted, it wasn’t just the fans who went crazy. The whole music world was holding its breath, waiting to see what rabbit McBusted would pull out of their collective hat. Nobody was disappointed.
A massive 35-date arena tour sold out practically overnight, including the biggest gig of the summer: an open-air spectacular in the middle of Hyde Park. Filmographer David Spearing had unrestricted access to the band throughout that crazy summer. The result is Tourplay. It’s a remarkable document of a remarkable show, but it’s a lot more than that. It takes the viewer behind the scenes of one of the biggest musical events of recent years, gives an unprecedented glimpse of life backstage and gets up close and personal with each member of the band in a series of endearingly honest and revealing interviews.
