Read the text below to know how to win a meet and greet with McFly at Sound Waves.

POP band McFly are heading to South Shields later this month.

The four-piece are one of a string of acts set for the stage at Sound Waves 2013.

And we’re giving you the chance to go backstage and meet them.

The gig, on Sunday, August 25, will also feature performances from X Factor winners Little Mix, including South Shields girls Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall, X Factor and Popstar to Operastar champ Joe McElderry, The Luminites and The Vamps. It’s set to be held at Bents Park in Sea Road, South Shields.

All this week, we’re offering fans a chance to go to the concert for free, and head backstage to meet up with their idols. And today is McFly’s turn.

We’ll give one lucky winner a pair of tickets for Sound Waves 2013, and a chance for them, and a friend, to meet the band, Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd, in the flesh.

McFly rose to fame when they were invited to tour with fellow act Busted in 2004.

They’ve gone on to sell more than 10 million albums around the world, and in 2005 were named the Best British Pop Act at the Brit Awards.

McFly’s debut album, Room on the 3rd Floor, debuted at No1 in the UK album chart and is certified as double platinum.

This led to them becoming known as the youngest band ever to have an album debut at No1 — a title taken from The Beatles.

To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is tell us why you’re McFly’s biggest fan and why you want to meet them.

Fill out the coupon in today’s paper and include a letter explaining why we should pick you in 100 words or less.

Send your letter and coupon to Vicki Newman, McFly, Shields Gazette, Northeast Press, Pennywell Industrial Estate, Sunderland, SR4 9ER.

You can also enter by e-mail to vicki.newman@northeast-press.co.uk

Winners will be contacted closer to the event.

Don’t miss your Gazette all this week for a chance to meet the rest of the stars.
