Kate Usher reviews McFly’s sold-out Best of McFly Tour at the O2 Academy in Newcastle

McFly day came early this week. Following the release of greatest hits album Memory Lane, the Best of McFly Tour arrived at a sold-out O2 Academy, Newcastle.

After a decade on the UK music scene, the boys have grown up. But they’ve not lost any of their hyperactive energy.

First up, support act The Vamps. They were probably the youngest people in the room, but that didn’t phase them. Move over Harry Styles, these boys can rock, even performing a One Direction cover.

It all went a bit Phoenix Nights as the spangly bow tied compare appeared, working the audience into a frenzy, helped in no small part by a YMCA dance-a-thon.

The noise in the room then built to almost deafening levels. And McFly proved to be well worth the tinnitus.

Whether you are a fan or not, I defy anyone not to get swept up in the party atmosphere McFly brings to the stage. They owned the crowd.

This was theatre, with hits such as Five Colours In Her Hair, Obviously, Star Girl and All About You plus a taste of some lesser known and previously unreleased material.

The cheeky banter of serial upstager and King of The Jungle, Dougie stole the show. But all four band members were on top form. Harry was laid back as ever. And Tom and Danny’s stripped down versions of I’ll Be OK and Bubblewrap provided a beautiful interlude before things got crazy again with silly hats and sing-alongs.

It’s not hard to see why McFly have managed to notch up over 10 million record sales worldwide, with a new hotly anticipated album due this summer.
