It never feels like McFly have been away but unbelievably it’s 10 years now since the lads have been out on an arena tour. Well, now they’re back and heading into Cardiff this May.
McFly are one of those unique bands. Not only have they been around a long time now (so no more boy-band name calling). Since hitting the big time as the youngest band ever to have a debut album go straight to number one — beating The Beatles’ long-standing record, they have each gone on to have individual, successful careers.
Harry has been off writing and dancing. Appearing in tours off the back of Strictly, which he won in 2011…….
Tom has been doing the Children’s book thing, very successfully…
Danny-The Voice-Jones (see what we did there?), Has been judging kids on The Voice….
Now a little word of warning about Danny – don’t let him show you any games on his phone. We were doing some press with the guys at an open air gig at Westonbirt Arboretum a few years back, and during a bit of down time, Danny showed us a ‘Word Game’ he was playing. What followed was 4 months of addiction and more than a few arguments with her indoors……..thanks Danny 🙂
Dougie has been modelling, acting and wrote a series of incredibly successful children’s books with Tom…
With seven UK number-one singles, five top-ten albums, six sell-out tours and ten million records sold worldwide, McFly are without question one of the most significant British pop acts of the twenty-first century. Tom, Danny, Dougie and Harry have become one of our best-loved bands, not to mention major stars in their own right.
I think we should have a little reminder of what they do best as a band………
This has absolutely nothing to do with the tour but, for no other reason than you have to see this, if you haven’t already, and something like 20 million of us have. This is Tom’s incredible wedding speech. It’s 14 minutes long but very sweet and we defy you not to have a little tear…..
After McFly’s most recent public performances as a quartet – which included a full UK tour and four consecutive sold-out nights at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall that also gave birth to the pop phenomenon that was McBusted — the guys felt the need for some time apart.
But there has really only been one question on the lips of McFly fans everywhere: when will their favourite band be back on stage together? Now, for those not lucky enough to have bagged a ticket for their November O2 show, the moment has come.
The band told us……..
‘The past week it has been incredible to feel so much support for our band after being away for so long. Selling out the O2 so fast has proved, once again, that we have the best fans in the world and we want to play to as many of you as possible. So we are very excited to announce our first arena tour in almost 10 years!’
This announcement of McFly’s return to touring comes hot on the heels of the exciting release of the fantastic Lost Songs. In fact this is what Tom tweeted about it recently…..
The 2020 Tour will be as spectacular an experience as we’ve come to expect from McFly. They will play their best-loved hits such as All About You, Obviously, Star Girl, One for the Radio and Shine a Light. They’ll also perform the cream of the Lost Songs originally intended for Album 6. And, knowing the guys, there might well be a surprise or two along the way…
McFly get to the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff on Monday 4th May. To find out more on tickets and to get yours, go here, McFly.
