Again, click the read more button if you want to read it as it contains spoilers from the tour.

They’re a little bit older than when we last saw them and despite numerous commitments away from the band, McFly still know how to throw a great party!

Fresh from running the London Marathon in an impressive 3h 31 the day before, drummer Harry Judd (who also lifted the Strictly Come Dancing trophy in 2011) and the boys hosted a show that actually lived up to its billing as The Best of McFly.

Leaping about the stage like loons they were as full of energy as they were in the early days, which, to be fair, is now a whopping ten years ago! But with hits like Five Colours in Her Hair sparking a crackle through the crowd there was no danger of anything less.

Right from the off, with a beautiful vocal rendition of That Girl, Tom, Danny, Dougie and Harry held the young audience in the palm of their hand.

It’s an energetic greatest hits tour to promote their latest album, Memory Lane, which features a taste of unreleased material the band particularly like, alongside their early hits Obviously, All About You, One For The Radio and Party Girl.

Whether you think they’re pop-punk or a 21st Century Monkees, the audience adored them, feasting on their energy to rock the auditorium. Aside from the core teenage clientele, there was a smattering of middle aged fans too – and of course, the mums who needed little persuading to get out to enjoy the music, the banter and the bouncing in the stalls.

Away from the recording studio these savvy lads – two of whom had auditioned for Busted before settling on McFly – have been busy. Harry also took part in the Olympic Torch Relay Run, while Dougie Poynter was named King of the Jungle in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

But this is now – and the tour everyone has been waiting for, bringing the excitement of tracks from five albums and seven UK No.1 singles and racks up the anticipation of a new album for this summer.

The biggest cheers was reserved for the last three numbers of the evening.

Their biggest hit Love is Easy featured with Comic Relief single All About You in a strong encore, which slowed things down a little after over 100 minutes of music with The Heart Never Lies to close.

The Vamps, as support, did a grand job warming up the Concert Hall and we’ll be hearing more from them as they’ve just signed to EMI.
