McBusted fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment at the "anticlimactic" Hyde Park announcement the supergroup made this morning - after hyping the news as 'massive'.
It was strongly rumoured the band would be releasing a new album, with a source telling The Sun the "overwhelming" response to the supergroup's formation meant the group would be recording new material together.
However, it was instead revealed at the press conference that McBusted will be headlining July's British Summer Time Festival at Hyde Park, with 'special guests' The Backstreet Boys - and Twitter users took to the social networking site to slam the "overhyped" announcement.
"A little disappointed with that #McBusted announcement. Overhyped and should have been a new album, no doubt," @AlastairMcG wrote, whilst @iaingoode fumed: "Fucking get a life, you have a press conference to say you are playing a show. #McBusted #pressconference selling my tickets."
@laubow_ echoed their frustration, adding: "All that hype, a press conference, just to announce a show? How attention seeking can you get!! #McBusted." "Whoever is the head of #Mcbusted's PR team wants a good talking to. Making fans hyped up for a one off UK gig was a silly move," @Bobbie_House said.
McBusted will close British Summer Time on Sunday July 6, with special guests The Backstreet Boys. Tickets will go on sale this Friday (December 13) at 9am. For more information visit Gigwise Gig Tickets.
