[x3]events and appearances > 2013 > wwf earth hour event, london – march 23

We love pandas, and we love McFly, so when WWF invited us down to London’s Royal Festival Hall on Saturday evening to watch McFly perform a very special gig while dressed as pandas, what could we say but HELL YEAH?

Tom, Harry, Danny and Dougie were all buttoned up in their black-and-white onesies to support WWF’s Earth Hour, the world’s biggest switch off, which was encouraging everyone to “do it in the dark” (ooer) for one hour to protect the planet.

We popped backstage to chat with the boys before the show, and were treated to the very-nice sight of Harry Judd doing pull-ups. When Tom then cheekily reached over for a squeeze of his guns, Harry told us, “They’re little at the moment, because I’m doing the marathon.”
In case any of you are wondering, they really aren’t little. They are *fans self* nice.

It’s not the first time the band have donned panda onesies – earlier this month, they did the Harlem Shake as pandas! So, how does it feel to be a panda? “I keep sitting on my tail!” Danny laughed, while Dougie tried to convince us that he was naked underneath his.
After the acoustic performance, which the boys did on a candlelit stage, all four stripped off and signed their (now a bit sweaty) panda onesies and handed them over to the WWF ladies to auction off.

Unfortunately, we were told that the half-empty packet of chewing gum and £3.52 we had in our bag was not enough to snag one. Bummer!
As well as channeling their inner bamboo-loving bear, the McFly foursome are currently in the middle of a hectic schedule of rehearsals for their upcoming UK tour, The Best Of McFly, which will kick off on 19 April.

They’ve also been working on new stuff in New York and LA (get them!) and recording a tune they wrote for One Direction over in Dublin. Somehow, Harry is also finding time to train for and run the London Marathon and the Tough Mudder for Teenage Cancer Trust and Eyes Alight (you can sponsor him by texting HARRY to 70300). Makes us feel tired just imagining it. Perhaps we’ll just go and quietly think about Harry’s guns instead…
