Fans can access the Summer Sessions - which will take place this year as Stirling celebrates its 900th anniversary as a Burgh - presale from 10am on Wednesday 7 February by signing up at www.smmrsessions.com.

The concert will take place at the foot of the historic Stirling Castle at Stirling City Park.

Impossible though it may seem, it’s been twenty years since Busted bounced into the charts with the irrepressible pop-punk energy of their debut single ‘What I Go To School For’.

It kickstarted a succession of hits for the trio, including the number one smashes ‘Crashed The Wedding’, ‘Who’s David’, ‘Thunderbirds Are Go’, ‘You Said No’ and the top three singles ‘Year 3000’, ‘Air Hostess’ and ‘Sleeping With The Light On’.

Now Busted have celebrated their 20th anniversary by playing the biggest UK arena tour in 2023, performing to 200,000 fans over 26 arenas and releasing their new album Greatest Hits 2.0 which features new versions of fourteen of their classic hits with very special guests.

The Stirling Summer Sessions show will see the much-loved trio - James Bourne, Charlie Simpson and Matt Willis - play their hits and fan-favourites.

Supporting Busted will be the iconic The Darkness with their cheeky, spandex-clad anthems, plus Eurovision superstar Dadi Freyr.

As a small city with a big history which is celebrating its 900th anniversary in 2024, Stirling is known for the attraction of its historic Castle which will form the stunning backdrop of the Stirling Summer Sessions stage at Stirling City Park.

Stirling has a strong track record of successfully hosting major events and big crowds, and the city’s central location provides excellent transport links, being within an hour’s travel time for 50% of Scotland’s population.

Music lovers can travel with ease to Stirling Summer Sessions – reaching the Stirling City Park from Glasgow in only 35 minutes, and Edinburgh in 50 minutes by train.

The shows announced at Stirling Summer Sessions so far are:

Busted – 28 June 2024
Tom Jones – 30 June 2024.
