Rebecca Clarke witnesses the continued appeal of the blend of two popular pop-punk boybands.

The amalgamation of McFly and Busted took to the stage after the last race at Newmarket’s July racecourse last Saturday, as part of the racecourse’s Summer Saturday special event, and thoroughly entertained the large crowd.

The combined talents of McBusted certainly knew how to engage the audience, with a show packed full of relentless on-stage energy, humour and banter between band members.
It may have come as a surprise to the younger generation of fans that the two bands have been producing albums for over 10 years, but – judging by their reception on this summer early evening – their popularity shows no signs of waning.

Other than Harry Judd who was at the rear of the stage on drums all five other members contributed to vocals, all joining in to play guitar and manage the general captivation of the crowd.

Amongst the hits blasted out were Busted’s ‘You Said No’, ‘Air Hostess’ and ‘Crashed the Wedding’ along with McFly’s hits ‘All About You’, ‘Obviously’ and ‘Stargirl’. There weren’t too many of the 20,000 revellers who weren’t singing along!

The band members clearly enjoyed engaging with each other, which added to the entertainment and amusement in between their songs and they had a few killer dance moves to show off too.

The encore ended with ‘Year 3000’. Who knows if McBusted’s music will still be listened to then, but judging by this performance I think they’ll be around for a long time yet, and their success is well deserved.

Our Harry is not only a great drummer he’a also really good at cricket:)

His hand-eye co-ordination on the drums isn’t in doubt so perhaps its no surprise then that Harry Judd is equally adept as a cricketer.
The McBusted star recently took part in a nets session with Sky Sports’ Ian Ward – where he engaged himself in some Test match-style batting.
And while Australia’s batsmen have been poor during this Ashes’ series, Judd showed them how it’s done as he impressed in front of the TV cameras.

Facing deliveries of varying lengths up to 100mph, the drummer looked a natural at the crease – swotting away several of the tennis balls and playing sensible leave shots.
Judd’s talents impressed Ward so much so that the Sky Sports analyst was full of praise for the musician as they looked back at replays of him in the nets.
The 29-year-old’s abilities with the bat have been well-documented in the past. Growing up at school Judd developed a reputation as a promising batsman but gave up cricket to pursue a career in music.
All-encompassing cricket almanac Wisden has even publicised about the drummer’s feats as a cricketer before.

In describing Judd, Wisden wrote: ‘Harry Judd, who scored 252 runs last season, left Uppingham to become a full-time drummer in the pop group McFly. The summer ended well for the side, with four wins in the last five matches, but even better for Harry Judd: McFly topped the UK singles chart twice, with Five Colours In Her Hair and Obviously.’
Australia captain Michael Clarke and his side will be hoping to replicate Judd’s solid technique when they face England at the Oval in the fifth Test beginning on Thursday.
Having seen the Ashes slip from their grasp at Trent Bridge, the tourists will be desperate to avoid losing the series 4-1.

Read below the interview Dougie did with Notion Magazine, he talks about fashion, Ellie… also you can see the hot photoshoot he did for the magazine in the gallery.

[x5]PHOTOSHOOTS > 2015 > LOUIE BANKS

Star of UK pop punk band McFly and super group McBusted, Dougie Poynter, talks to Notion Magazine about his latest tour, his modelling aspirations and why collaborating with girlfriend Ellie Goulding is definitely not on the cards

He’s always been a stylish guy, but fans of McBusted, or anyone that follows Dougie Poynter on social media, will have noticed he has really upped his A-game in the style stakes the last 12 months. His engagement could be due the musician’s increased involvement in the fashion world, having founded his own clothing company, Saint Kidd in 2011. It may be down to having to keep up with his girlfriend, pop idol and trend setter, Ellie Goulding. Whatever the reason, we are very much advocates of his style right now and were pretty pleased to be given a first look at some exclusive pictures of Dougie, shot by his friend, photographer Louie Banks.

As you may see from these pictures, Dougie proves he has great fashion taste, having styled himself with clothes from his own wardrobe (mostly Saint Laurent btw), but also that he’s a natural in front of the camera.We caught up with him to discuss who holds the style crown in his relationship, his dreams to be the face of a fashion campaign and what’s next for McBusted. Now he has finished touring with McBusted, Dougie may have some extra time on his hands to get in front of the camera again. After judging these images, we think that may not be a bad idea…

When Notion met Dougie

NOTION: Hi Dougie, how are you? How has your day been?

DOUGIE: I’m good thank you! Not much has been happening today; I thought I had something on, but it turns out that it is tomorrow instead, so I’ve been kind of like, ‘eh alright, what should I do?’

NOTION: How was the McBusted ‘Most Excellent Adventure’ tour that finished not too long ago?

DOUGIE: That was awesome. The McBusted shows have been the most fun any of us have had on stage I think. It was pretty special.

NOTION: What song do you enjoy performing the most?

DOUGIE: Probably ‘Year 3000’, just because it’s super easy to jump around to and everyone goes nuts for it, it’s cool.

NOTION: What has been the ‘most excellent adventure’ of your career so far?

DOUGIE: Err, man. I can’t really say one thing. Within the twelve, thirteen years that we’ve been a band, we’ve got to travel the world, see some cool things and see some terrible things. We’ve played humongous shows, we’ve played really tiny shows, so the whole thing has been a pretty mental adventure.

NOTION: Do you prefer the bigger shows to the smaller ones?

DOUGIE: The smaller ones you can mess around a little bit more and it’s more about just playing and the bantering between songs, and then the bigger shows we have loads of production and pyrotechnics and things that could blow you up. UFO’s, inflatable boobs that squirt things at people… they’re two completely different things that we enjoy equally.

NOTION: What’s it like being in a band with such good friends?

DOUGIE: It’s kind of like a family. You don’t really over think how close you are. Even with the Busted guys, they’ve been like our cousins that just pop up every now and again and hang out with them loads. It’s really cool, it just makes life easier.
…keep reading.

I added to the gallery the scans of the Hello Magazine issue that features an interview with Harry and Izzy talking about their pregnancy.

[x5]SCANS > MAGAZINES > 2015 > HELLO MAGAZINE – AUGUST 17

Harry Judd and his wife Izzy have revealed that the baby they are expecting in January is the result of IVF, in an exclusive interview with HELLO! magazine.

Read the full interview in this week’s HELLO! magazine, available to download now. Buy it now on Ipad, android, kindle fire and more formats. Or subscribe today to make sure you don’t miss an issue!

“You feel like you are never going to be the ones who get to say, ‘We are having a baby’. That is why we feel so blessed now,” says 29-year-old Harry as he tells the magazine of their struggle to conceive and the heartache of a miscarriage from their first attempt at IVF last year.

“In an ideal world when you’re ready to start a family you hope you will conceive in the first few months of trying,” says Harry. “We were like, no, no we won’t need IVF, it won’t be us. IVF was like something you didn’t talk about. We thought it would be fine.”

“Every baby is a miracle but we do feel so very lucky,” says Izzy, 31, who was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries in her twenties.

“I never wanted to stop believing that we would have a family,” says Izzy. “But you do feel like someone has pressed pause on your life and you can’t go anywhere.”

The couple, who started to try for a family after their wedding in 2012, share the moment they watched on a scan as the embryo was implanted, with Izzy telling HELLO!: “It was such a clinical environment but there was such magic in the air.”

The couple lost count of the number of times people asked them if we wanted to have a family. “This was always so impossible to answer and felt like my heart was breaking every time,” says Izzy.

The couple are yet to find out if they are having a boy or a girl with Harry adding: No we don’t want to know,”

Well McBusted isn’t like reformed as it didn’t exist as McBusted before but here’s what they say about the boys.

8. McBusted

McBusted have tasted major success
Not technically a reunion as the band hadn’t previously existed but they can’t be ignored.
The super-group which comprises of the four McFly band members and their former heroes Busted, minus Charlie Simpson, formed in 2013 and tickets soon sold out for their 11-stop tour. It was extended to 34 nights and the group haven’t looked back as they supported world-beaters One Direction during 2014 and 2015.

After the raving credibility of Faithless and the wedding disco-style cheese of 80s Vs 90s, it was the turn of pop rockers McBusted to entertain on Lytham Green.

The six-piece supergroup, formed of Busted and McFly, raced through what felt like a greatest hits set which had fans of all ages bouncing in the Lytham Festival Arena.

From the opening strains of joint hit Air Guitar, to the closing bars of Star Girl – plus encore tracks Five Colours In Her Hair, Shine A Light and Year 3000, fans sang along throughout.

There’s no doubt this gang of mates have a ball on stage and that energy transferred into the audience.

Brief moments of banter reveal the friendships the two bands’ former members share as a single act. More of those laughs – albeit schoolboy in their humour – would surely have been welcomed from a Saturday night crowd out for a good time.

Among the non-musical highlights was a mini showcase of drummer Harry Judd’s Strictly Come Dancing champion credentials (he won, in a final at Blackpool Tower Ballroom, in 2011).

With bandmate Matt Willis, he raised Dougie Poynter aloft in a Dirty Dancing-inspired lift – backed by the 10,000-strong crowd singing (I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life. And Busted’s James Bourne ranked it as his ‘all time highlight of any show’ on Twitter.

And the show, opened by Britain’s Got Talent singer Callum Scott, Irish boy band Hometown, and Say Something chart star Karen Harding, will certainly have marked its place in Lytham’s ‘all time highlights’ too.

WHEN two bands collide it is either mayhem or magic and the merger of McFly and Busted has won them a place in an elite circle.

Arriving at the enchanted forest of Westobirt Arboretum we walked across the field being serenaded by a group of young girls singing Get Over It with great gusto.

They were not disappointed as their idols blasted out the pop rock number and other favourites, including Air Guitar, amidst a sea of plastic guitars all being strummed enthusiastically by young and old in the crowded arena.

Opening for McBusted were an Irish band under the wing of Louis Walsh called Hometown.

A young outfit of impish singers who have notched up two number one hits in Ireland. They fired up the mosh pit at the front of the stage with their latest single Where I Belong.

McBusted gave us a set that was a fireball of solid gold pop, tinged with a rocky blitz from Harry’s strictly dynamic drums underpinning some rich guitar riffs.

Tom obviously had a sore throat but still plunged in gamely and, apart from a little less power, gave a creditable performance.

Dougie came in for some stick from his band mates over his hair cut and tight, white jeans – which he did not bring back from the jungle.

A slow hands sway heralded It’s All About You, the Children in Need anthem for 2013, but we were back to a leaping crowd singing madly along to McFly hits Obviously and Star Girl.

My friend said that the energy of the band reminded her of the immortal genius of the Baycity Rollers and their influence over their Tartan Army.

Acrobatics was the theme of this concert with running handstands and dodgy dance moves from Hometown, a leapfrog entry by all six of McBusted musicians and little girls, all around the site, showing off their stage school dances and cartwheeling to the music.

The guys certainly know how to work an audience as the food vendors were also swaying along in their vans and, not to be left out, even the police officers, patrolling the arena, joined in the dancing.

The musicians created a great rapport with the crowd except for the occasional lapse into toilet humour.

This form of banter usually fails unless delivered with razor sharp wit, but the obsession with the word ‘pooh’ went down a bundle with the under 12s giggling behind their hands.

The final song Year 3000, sung amidst a circle of trees all lit up against the darkening skies, was a storming finale for a family concert that was a lot of fun.

Earlier today McBusted’s Dougie Poynter had us quaking in our boots as he posted a photo of a pile of golden hair.

We were terrified… had the 27 year old really cut off his glorious mane?

Turns out he had…

But panic not, friends. The new Dougie ‘do actually looks pretty great.

Dougie’s ladyfriend, Ellie Goulding, posted a photo of his new look on Instagram with the caption: “FIT”.

She’s spot on, in fairness…
