Fans went crazy for McFly at Kingsholm when they stormed into Gloucester.

Friends Annie Tuck, 10, Lucy Beeston, 11, Milly Hayes, 11 and Molly Hornby, 11, were in the audience, along with their willing mums, and were thrilled to be seeing the band.

Milly said: “It was really, really good and exciting.” Lucy added: “They were amazing. They have such good songs.”

Meanwhile Georgina Scholes, 19, was bought birthday tickets by friend Elly Grantham, 19, for her birthday.

They travelled down from Warwick and she said: “This is the third time I’ve seen them. They’re my favourite band and these tickets were a total surprise.”

The band kicked off with favourites such as Star Girl and Five Colours In Her Hair, throught songs such as Shine a Light, All About You and Heart Never Lies.

They also covered The Beatles’ I Saw Her Standing There, Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now and Stevie Wonder’s Superstition.

It is the first gig the band have played since their tour, they told the crowd, while sharing their stories about their dinner.

They told the Gloucester audience they were an ‘epic crowd’ and joked with them about how much they had eaten that day.

Later, they composed a ditty after spotting the Divine Burger van at the ground and decided to sing them a ‘theme song’. Danny Jones, lead singer and guitar player, sang them ‘Have you tried a Divine Burger?’. Staff at the van, owned and run by Gloucester-based SFC Catering, brought them one of the burgers to try on stage.

Afterwards, Natalie Rayton, 26, from Cheltenham, said: “McFly were just amazing. We had such a good time.”

Emma Burkett, 27, from Longlevens said it was her fourth time seeing the band, and her favourite out of all their gigs.

“It was so nice seeing them in Gloucester. We were a lot closer to them than that at other gigs and they were really funny, they had some great ad libs. They were really funny. It was great being able to go to a gig in Gloucester rather than travelling to another city.”

Jez Wilson, 34, from Gloucester, thought it had a great atmosphere, and said: “It’s always good to see a band in the open air and to have it at Kingsholm.”

Ellie Mackman, 15, said: “I loved the bit about the Divine Burger and singing them the song. It was so funny.”

Earlier band member Tom Fletcher posted a video of them walking to the stage and hearing the crowd’s cheers.

Danny Jones tweeted a thanks to Gloucester and a video of them leaving Kingsholm.
