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. 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 — Tom, Danny, Dougie and Harry have become one of our best-loved bands, not to mention major stars in their own right.
After McFly’s most recent public perfomances 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. Characteristically, each of them has gone on to be a great success in their own right. Tom has become a wildly bestselling children’s author; Danny has become a TV mainstay with his regular appearances alongside Pixie Lott, Jessie J and will.i.am as a judge on The Voice Kids; Dougie has combined his burgeoning acting career, an acclaimed stint with alternative-rock band INK and a passionate role as an environmental campaigner; and Strictly winner Harry has wowed West End audiences, starring in the hit dance show Rip it Up, while promoting a cause close to his heart: positive mental health through fitness.
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? And to celebrate the event, Tom, Danny, Dougie and Harry have a special gift for the fans: McFly: The Lost Songs.
There exists a wealth of as yet unheard recordings in the McFly vaults. This sensational original material accumulated after the release of their last album, Above The Noise, and before the sensational launch of McBusted. Now, by way of thanking their fans for supporting them with such enthusiasm over the years, the guys are making this fantastic music, originally intended for their unreleased sixth album, freely available on Spotify and all major platforms. The Lost Songs is the material all McFly devotees have been clamouring for years to hear. It is classic McFly, and now, at last, it will be freely available to every one of their millions of fans across the world.
And, of course, those lucky enough to bag a ticket for 20 November will have another chance to see the guys live in concert. Their first ever O2 show will be as spectacular an experience as we have come to expect from McFly. They will play their best-loved mega-hits such as All About You, Obviously, Star Girl, One for the Radioand Shine a Light. They will perform, for the first time ever, the Lost Songs originally intended for Album 6. They will showcase their amazing musicianship, showmanship and humour. And, knowing the guys, there might well be a surprise or two along the way…
