As we sat on the stationary train outside Smethwick, I tried to calm my 16-year-old daughter down, reassuring her that Mcfly would surely wait to start the gig at O2 Academy until we arrived – as if!

Eventually in Brum, after dashing through the city streets, we were more than relieved to join the thousands queuing outside the venue. I’d not seen anything like it in ages. The reformed boy/man band had proven to be something of a bigger draw than perhaps even they had anticipated. Eventually we were in.

I was pleased – actually relieved – to see that the capacity audience wasn’t going to be purely screaming girls and one disheveled dad. Far from it. Many balding chaperones had been dragged along.

But hey, who am I kidding. I genuinely enjoyed myself. The cheeky Mcfly boys are actually pretty good musicians, as highlighted from the off with a crowd-pleasing rendition of their first big hit, Five Colours in Her Hair. Rachel, my daughter, was ecstatic – screaming like a crazed Beatles fan from back in the day.

Night one of the boys’ three-night residency showcased there early material, with subsequent evenings featuring different setlists. Many of the hyped up audience will doubtlessly be at all three shows.

The evening was lapped up enthusiastically by an adoring crowd, singing the lyrics of hits Obviously, Room on the Third Floor and assorted album tracks at the top of its collective voice.

For an encoure, the lads returned to the stage with more recent material, including Love is on the Radio and Love is Easy.

Unlike the last time we saw Dougie, Harry, Tom and Danny – then as super-group McBusted – this was a stripped-down show. Simple backdrop, no frills. The music and banter stealing the night.

Great job guys. Rachel was impressed, as was her rather cynical father. And if you can win me over, you’ll be around for a long time to come.

After one casual supergroup venture, a couple of new McBaby births and twelve years of waiting in Azkaban (feels like it anyway), McFly are finally back looking and sounding better than ever before. No seriously, we went to watch their Anthology Tour last night at London’s O2 Forum, and it was probably the best and sweatiest show that we’ve ever been to in our entire lives.

The premise of the Anthology Tour is simple but epic. Every single McFly song ever recorded, from every album they’ve ever released, split neatly across three back-to-back evenings. We were lucky enough to be invited down to celebrate the ye olde Room on The Third Floor era of McFly – along with a few extra fan favourites chucked on top for good measure.

So how did the lads get on with singing vintage songs about parents being out of town, getting laid behind the garden shed and wanting to date surfer babes, now that they’ve got a combined age of approximately 119? Oooh, let’s discuss.

The Setlist

Seeing as the Anthology Tour already spoils the exact set list that you’re signing up for, it was pretty much a given that we were gonna love every second of McFly’s ROTTF show, from the first ‘Do do do do do DO’ of ‘Five Colours’, all the way through to the final ‘Sheeee caaaares’ of ‘Brocolli’.

We’ll let you in on a little, verging on embarrassing, secret here. Sugarscape’s Lucy has in fact lost count of the number of times that she’s seen McFly live over the years. It’s potentially 26 (give or take a few), but even a McVeteran like her was able to see the band perform some songs for the very first time. We saw stuff like ‘Met This Girl’ and ‘Down By The Lake’ which we’ve waited literally DECADES to hear live, so that was exciting.

McFly also promised that a handful of greatest hits would feature amongst the antics for Night One, but it’d probably be more accurate to call it a fan favourite selection. While ‘Star Girl’ and ‘All About You’ didn’t make the cut (gasp), low key gems like ‘No Worries’ and ‘Silence Is A Scary Sound’ did. The impromptu fan request of the night was, of course, Anne Boleyn and her tin in ‘Transylvania’.

What were the best bits, then?

Would it be cheating if we said that the best bits were approximately 8.45pm through to 10.30pm? That’s the entire set, just in case we’ve made that slightly confusing.

From the moment Tom, Danny, Dougie and Harry walked on stage in sparkly denim jackets and sweater vests to kick off ‘Five Colours’, we were transported back to the days of 2004, recording their TV appearances on VHS and keeping a scrap book of their Smash Hits mag appearances. Don’t judge.

They will bring their Anthology tour to Birmingham with headline dates between September 21 and 23.

These shows were rescheduled from June, after Harry Judd sustained an acute disc herniation.

At the time, Harry said: “I’m absolutely gutted that we’ve had to postpone the tour. I’ve honestly tried everything to make it work, but I’d never want to do a tour where I wouldn’t be able to give you guys the 110 per cent performance you deserve every night.”

McFly are one of the most significant pop groups of the past 15 years. Their five studio albums have racked up sales of more than 10 million and they have had seven UK No1 singles, five Top 10 albums and numerous sell-out tours – both by themselves and with supergroup, McBusted.

Now Tom, Dougie, Harry and Danny are back with The Anthology Tour. Playing three nights each concert will feature a different set list from a different McFly album, alongside some of the band’s biggest hits.

The first night will feature songs from Room On The Third Floor, the second songs from Wonderland and Motion In The Ocean and the third songs from Radio:ACTIVE and Above The Noise

Looks love we’ll have new Mcfly music soon!!!

DOUGIE Poynter has confirmed McFly are working on new music for the first time in six years ahead of their comeback Anthology Tour in September.

Following a three year break, where the boys scrapped their sixth studio album to join forces with Matt Willis and James Bourne and form supergroup McBusted, the bass player has revealed McFly have big plans for the future.

“There will be new McFly music,” he confirmed to The Sun Online at V Festival.

“There’s a few ideas floating around already, we’ll hopefully be writing stuff on tour.”

The new McFly material will follow their fifth album Above the Noise which was released in 2010.

Where as a sixth album was expected to follow, the boys scrapped all plans after forming McBusted and are now starting from scratch.

They released Memory Lane: The Best Of McFly in 2012.

In June, Tom excited fans by posting a selfie at a piano to McFly’s official Facebook with the caption: “Writing.”

Talking about reuniting as the four-piece, Dougie added: “McFly will always be there.

“They’re my family, we’re all brothers.”

McFly first formed in 2003, with members Dougie, Danny Jones, Tom Fletcher and Harry Judd topping the charts with debut album Room On The Third Floor.

The band spent the next decade selling out arenas around the country, before joining forces with Matt and James for two years of McBusted.

In September they’ll regroup and head out on their sold out comeback Anthology Tour.

The intimate tour will see the boys playing three consecutive nights in four different cities.

McFly will be heading to Manchester, London, Glasgow and Birmingham.

Each evening they’ll play two of their albums in full, with each city hearing every single McFly track ever released across the three nights.

The tour, initially scheduled for June, was pushed back to September after Harry suffered a neck injury.

Now fighting fit after rehab and a period of rest, McFly are ready to burst back into the spotlight.

The post is from friday but is actually really accurate so i thought it would be cool to share it with you guys:)

We might never get over this

At precisely 9am this morning, tickets to McFly’s recently announced UK Anthology tour officially went on sale to the general public, and if you were sat there with us, mouse hovering over the refresh button, then you’ll know what a rollercoaster ride it was.

Somehow managed to get yourself a golden ticket into the teeny tiny venues to see the boys for the first time in years? Oh congrats, we’re SO HAPPY FOR YOU (ugh), you’ve officially got magic powers and are better humans than we are.

But if you, like us, epically failed in your mission to secure McFly tickets then you may feel better in the knowledge that you are definitely not alone. Here’s the 13 emotional stages that we all experienced today.

1. PURE JOY
April 25th 2016 will henceforth be known as the best day of my life. McFly are officially back together after many, many moons of a soulless emptiness in the music industry, and they’re going on tour too. My days on this Earth have peaked.

2. DOUBT
Hang on. What if… What if I don’t get tickets? Why the BLOODY NORA have they decided to play venues that are only marginally bigger than a shoebox? This is now my McEverest, and the possibility that I might not succeed is almost too much to handle. Pray for me.

3. CONFIDENCE
Oh who am I KIDDING. I’m a ticket buying wizz anyway, and when it comes to McFly there’s nothing that will get in my way. I’ve been to every single tour so far, and Anthology is not about to ruin my perfect score. Has anyone even said they were a fan of McFly since about 2005? It’s only me and my weird friends who still like them. Oh I AM TICKETS.

4. DETERMINATION
Time to channel Rocky, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mike Tyson all at once into my ticket buying abilities. I’ve set up camp from around 8am, I’m armed with provisional snacks, I’ve had extra strong coffee to make sure I’m at peak concentration level. There’s even some work outs going on for my clicking finger.

5. ANXIETY
Since WHEN does Ticketmaster have that incredibly stressful countdown clock. THERE’S THREE MINUTES TO GO. Is this what palpitations feel like? Am I having a stroke? Dougie Poynter, you are going to cause my demise. Although I did always know that my death would be McFly related so this all makes sense really.

6. PANIC
9AM. AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. REFRESH REFRESH REFRESH. F**KING REFRESH.
…keep reading.
