As always during the tour, click the read more button below to read the review of the Sheffield Show.

The McFly boys were back in town this week as part of their Memory Lane tour.
The show features all the best hits spanning the boys 10 year career and the sell-out audience at Sheffield City Hall proved they still have a strong following, writes entertainment reporter Selina Maycock.

Sporting a new grown-up style, the lads Dougie, Harry, Tom and Danny smarted up wearing skinny jeans, waistcoats and white shirts with their converse trainers and they still had the roaring screams from the ladies.

The stage set looked awesome. With its retro American theatre frontage complete with illuminated billboards to light up the city hall, McFly went all out to impress – performing not just a show, but in fact a superb showcase.

It wasn’t long before fans caught their eye with banners, when Danny proudly paraded a banner saying ‘It’s all about Danny’ to make his fellow band mates jealous. The show was kick started with a gentle a-capella before the boys got their instruments warmed up and within no time their energy was at its max, bouncing around the stage they jammed and danced their hearts out.

Performing songs that started out their career, such as Five Colours in Her Hair, Obviously, All About You and The Heart Never Lies, plus recent hits from their fifth studio album. An electrifying evening was complimented with the performance of some chilled out numbers, where Tom swapped his guitar for a piano.

One of my favourite McFly single is their top five single Shine a Light recorded with UK hitmaker Taio Cruz but something I didn’t expect to experience at a McFly gig was a rendition of the Village People’s Y.M.C.A – complete with the props – Indian feathers, hard hats, police hat, and cowboy hat. Surprisingly the mix was refreshing and fans even couldn’t resist joining in with the actions.

The whole evening switched seamlessly from a rock gig, pop gig to a dance gig. At one point McFly delivered a set that was close to those found in clubbing capital Ibiza – complete with flash lights and lasers, all that was missing was audience glow sticks. The boys performed outstandingly, singing live, dancing and interacting with the crowds, they lived up to their previous tour standards.

And rounding of the gig, McFly performed It’s All About You before a finale To no surprise the fans are eagerly awaiting another album from the boys which is currently being recorded.
