Charlie Simpson


Location: The Doghouse Day: Friday Set Time: TBA

Charlie Simpson is one of the UK’s most celebrated voices. He first came to attention with the soaring success of Busted, who achieved four UK #1 singles and a further four Top 3 hits plus two albums which both peaked at #2 and were certified multi-Platinum. An arena-filling live band, the two-time BRIT Award winners’ popularity has continued into the present day with their 20th Anniversary tour registering as the biggest UK & Ireland Arena tour of 2023. Simpson also took a heavier approach with four albums from the critically acclaimed Fightstar, while two of his four solo albums to date have also reached the Top 10. Charlie won the 2023 series of ’The Masked Singer’ as Rhino.
