McBusted have announced three outdoor shows for this later this year.

The group, made up of members from Busted and McFly, will play in Scarborough, Weston-super-Mare and Ipswich in June.

They will be joined by The Backstreet Boys, Scouting For Girls, 5ive and dance group Diversity for the Weston-super-Mare and Ipswich dates.

The announcement follows the news that the band will headline Hyde Park's British Summer Time in July.

In a statement, McBusted said: "We can't wait to be adding further outdoor shows and look forward to playing all the Mcfly and Busted hits."

The Backstreet Boys, who have sold 130 million records worldwide, said: "For Weston-super-Mare we're going to feel right at home on the beach like our home state Florida! Let's make it an unforgettable beach party."

Talking about the Ipswich date, they added: "We also haven't played on the east coast of the UK before so we're looking forward to seeing all your faces and can't wait!"
