Fightstar have announced plans to regroup next year for a show at London’s Wembley Arena to mark 20 years of the hardcore group.

The London band, which began life as the side project of Busted’s Charlie Simpson, will headline the 12,000 capacity arena on March 22 2024, marking their first gig in eight years.

The group, which also consists of guitarist Alex Westaway, bassist Dan Haigh and drummer Omar Abidi, will be supported by Loathe and Twin Atlantic.

“Next year marks 20 years since Fightstar played our first show in a tiny night club in Northampton, mainly in front of friends and family,” says Charlie. “To be sat here today about to play our biggest ever headline show at London’s legendary Wembley Arena is something that is hard for us to comprehend. We are so thankful to all our fans who have been so loyal to us and we can’t wait to celebrate this milestone with them. This will be a very special night for all of us.”

The show announcement comes weeks after Simpson concluded a huge UK arena tour with Busted.
