I Need To M.E.A.T and Greet McBusted

I haven't blogged about my love for Mcbusted for a few weeks so I suppose now is a good time to give them a mention. Last week I was browsing through my emails when I came across one from the McBusted boys, well it was just a mail shot but it was very exciting.

On Tuesday 3rd February they released M.E.A.T and Greet packages for their upcoming tour. I have to admit I did let out a little squeal. How sad to think I am almost 35 but the thought of meeting them gets me a little excited.
The thing is for those that are new to my blog, I love Mcbusted. Always have and always will. I love their music and they all seem very nice, genuine, down to earth people. When it comes to music  I NEVER listen to albums, I just like songs. Daddy usually makes me my own compilation of singles for the car but I always listen to and enjoy Busted/McFly/Mcbusted albums, so I MUST be a true fan.
Anyway back to the M.E.A.T and Greet (M.E.A.T standing for Most Excellent Adventure Tour). I really, really, really want to meet them but and its a BIG but I just don't know if I can justify the cost of meeting someone for a quick photo and a hello.
Daddy has told me to just book the upgrade (we already have our tickets) but I knew it was going to be really expensive.  Also what would I say to them? I am old with two kids they might think i'm a bit of a freak for liking them so much.  
So I was in a dilemma on what to do. I logged in to VIP nation at 3:50pm and kept refreshing to see if it had updated yet and also to have a peek through one eye at the cost. I knew it would be a lot but I wasn't expecting it to be a big £100 each expensive plus booking fees, on top of the cost of the ticket we already had.
So after thinking for a minute or two I did I clicked clicked cancel. For the total cost of £220 we could have a nice weekend away together as a family or we could put it towards the cost of our new bathroom. 
I think as I've got older I've definitely got wiser and although I know on the night of the concert I will be thinking 'I could be meeting them now' I know right now I've made the right decision.

  2. Awww no way, I never knew they released those tickets. But yes you did right to cancel and think on other more important things to spend the money.

    1. It's is high considering this is on top of the already expensive ticket price

  6. I cannot tell you how much I love McBusted too. I suppose being 22, i've grown up with them really, so I love Busted/McFLY/McBusted. I went to see them at the O2 last year and it truly was the most AMAZING concert I have EVER been to. But, I was under the impression it would be a complete one off thing, so when they announced another tour this year I was just a bit put out. I have no idea how I managed to pay for it last year - tickets, train, hotel, train home again, as well as day out in central london - and there was absolutely no way i'd be able to do it again this year. I was gutted, my boyfriend was going to buy tickets for us for our anniversary, but I had to tell him that, although it was a lovely gesture, there's no way we could justify it. It was a bit heart breaking, I have to be honest, but just like you, we have responsibilities. I'm sure every other 22 year old girl in the country will be seeing them and saying hi and I will be missing out on that opportunity, but I wouldn't swap having my little Lukeosaurus for the chance. #WhatYourWeekend

  8. It's so expensive to meet them. Definitely not fair on the fans. I used to love both Busted and McFly when I was younger.

  9. Well done on your choice! Even though sometimes we really like something, the wisest thing to do is not go with the impulse.
    You will get other chances that are even better!

  10. I do the same and way to go you for looking at the bigger picture. That's a lot of money and would be nice but a family getaway those amazing memories would last forever not just for you but everyone! Not fair on the fans though that's crazy money. Thanks for linking up to Share With Me. I hope to see you again tomorrow for another great round of sharing. #sharewithme
