Thank you for your support!
We wanted to say big THANK YOU to those fans who made their way to the Roxy to see Future Boy play on June 24, 2010. For those who attended the show, you may have noticed that there were several Team Future Boy members present, taking the time to help support Future Boy by handing out Future Boy promo items. The Team had the pleasure of meeting a number of fans and talking about our favorite subject: Future Boy! We’re so happy that you’re all as enthusiastic about Future Boy music as we are! The show at the Roxy was AMAZING, but it is just the beginning of many great shows to come. We can’t wait to meet you all eventually. Thank you so much for supporting Future Boy!

Team members who helped out at the Roxy show: Teresa (Team leader), Stefanie, Stacy, Raegan, Juliet, Vivian, and Vicquie!
Future Boy opened for Allstar Weekend on June 24, 2010 at The Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, California. The doors opened at 5:30 and by 6:00pm James was on stage and ready to perform in a show as Future Boy for the first time ever! In case you didn’t get to go to the show, you can still have a peek at what you missed. There are fan recorded videos on YouTube (just search for Future Boy show or Future Boy and Roxy). The official team coverage of the show is as follows:

Karate On My Heart
Pressure To Stay Together
Hoping For Disaster
Before and after the show, Team Future Boy street team members handed out goodies to the crowd. There were glowsticks, lanyards, t-shirts, stickers, bracelets, pins, and mints all printed with the Future Boy logo! Everyone got something to take home. When the show was over, everyone exited the venue and fans lined up to wait for their turn to enter the meet & greet with Allstar Weekend. James made his way down the whole line talking to fans, signing autographs, and posing for pictures! Future Boy clearly appreciates ALL of his fans!
James followed up his epic performance and awesome fan interaction by celebrating with friends, family, and street team members with an impromptu rooftop party!!
All around, it was a memorable night and a great start to Future Boy shows! The street team can’t wait to meet more of you at the next one!
We, here at Team Future Boy, could not be more excited about the upcoming Future Boy performance at the Allstar Weekend Album Release Party show at Roxy in West Hollywood, California on June 24th. James Bourne has really worked hard on Future Boy music and deserves every success. We have a feeling that this performance is just the beginning of many great performances to come! If you live in the Los Angeles area (or are travelling there) and are attending the show, please drop us a comment here, or a tweet on Twitter to let us know. We’d love to meet as many Future Boy fans as possible. At the show, the team will be handing out goodies, rare promo items, and taking information from people who are interested in signing up to help promote Future Boy and spread the word! Come say hello, score some swag, and stay for an awesome show! Sound good? Yeah, we know.

James Bourne sat down with Flecking Records’ Frankie Genchi to discuss the past (Busted and Son Of Dork), the present (those Busted reunion rumors, writing for other artisits, and Loserville the musical), and, of course, Future Boy. It’s great interview and will probably answer a few of the questions you have about James. Check it out!
A new contest will be announced shortly… stay tuned! While you’re waiting, keep spreading the word about Future Boy to all of your friends! Tell everyone to check out www.thefutureboy.com and to download Volume 1, Side A if they haven’t already. Keep reminding everyone about the release of Side B on thursday, June 3rd! Remember to also check out Loserville the Musical, featuring songs by James Bourne, coming to the West End in London in 2011! Go to loservillemusical.tv for a sneak peak of the show!
We have a competition winner!
Congratulations Sheyla L. Anandita Ashari
Sheyla did an AWESOME job of posting links all over the internet, spreading the word about Future Boy, and telling friends about the upcoming release on June 3! It was such a great effort that when I informed James of all of the hard work she put into spreading the word, he said he would like to thank her personally! Sheyla, get ready for a video chat with James Bourne! You deserve it!
