A Ticket for Everyone is a live album by English pop punk band Busted. It contains twelve tracks recorded during the Manchester leg of their A Present for Everyone tour, plus the studio version of "Thunderbirds Are Go!", which had not previously been included on an album in the United Kingdom. The album contains live versions of the group's singles, as well as a cover of the 1978 Undertones song "Teenage Kicks" and album track "That Thing You Do". The European version of the albums omits "She Wants to Be Me", due to contractual issues, and the studio version of "Thunderbirds Are Go!", as it was previously issued on the 2004 reissue of A Present for Everyone in Europe.
Bourne, Simpson, and Willis were augmented by Chris Banks, Damon Wilson, and Chris Leonard. On bbc.co.uk, Adam Cumiskey stated: "The live element of this album is slightly staid: there's no improvisation in the songs; they sound exactly like the singles. However, with their swagger and confidence... they manage to resist sounding like a contestant in a battle of the bands competition".
Unlike their two studio albums, A Ticket for Everyone was only a minor hit on the UK Albums Chart, peaking at number 11. Busted officially split up two months after its release. An accompanying DVD featuring footage from the Manchester concerts was released with the same title. The DVD went Platinum in the UK.
