McBusted have been announced as One Direction’s support act for their shows in Australia this year.

The band posted a video yesterday, announcing that they would be accompanying the 1D boys on their jaunt around Australia next month.

The Australian leg of their ‘On The Road Again’ tour kicks off in Sydney on February 7th, as the start of their 7-date run over there.

Of course, McBusted and One Direction are pretty much BFFs now, and the boys stepped in as the support act on a few of 1D’s ‘Where We Are’ tour dates last year.

Nialler tweeted his excitement about heading out on tour with McBusted:


He then added:


The boys even hinted at the idea of a collaboration live on stage, as McBusted’s Matt Willis tweeted to Niall: “dude so stoked!!! Gonna be Sick! Gotta get you up to sing my verse of 3am!!!”, to which Nialler replied: “I’ll do anything to sing that !”

We wonder if McBusted will tour the UK with One Direction, or anywhere else?
