If you wanna enjoy one of the most anticipating concerts of the year with McFly and The Wanted together the only thing you have to do is participate in the competition below.. good luck to everyone!

Two of the biggest bands in the land will be launching the Tower Festival Headland as an outdoor venue in June – and you could be seeing them for nothing.

In association with promoters Cuffe & Taylor and Marketing Blackpool, Duke’s Diary is giving away two pairs of general admission tickets for the concert by The Wanted and McFly on Sunday, June 24.

The concert, which brings together two of the country’s biggest boy bands at the UK’s newest open air venue, is presented by promoters Cuffe & Taylor in association with Marketing Blackpool.

The Wanted and McFly are two of Britain’s most popular bands, with certified gold and double platinum albums respectively.

McFly have recently hit the headlines again after members Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd both won reality TV contests – namely I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and Strictly Come Dancing.

It will be the first return to the resort for Harry since winning Strictly in the Tower Ballroom.

The Wanted have been enjoying great chart success, and have recently been touring in America. They embark on their first sold out UK arena tour next month.

Interest in the concert is already at fever pitch, with early bird tickets available at £24.50 each from today until February 3 – after which they rise to £29.50. Tickets are available,, or by calling 0844 8889991.

The event coincides with the arrival of the Olympic Torch in Blackpool on Friday, June 22.

Following the arrival of the Olympic Torch, an evening celebration will take place on the Tower Festival Headland. A spokesman for Cuffe & Taylor said: “We are thrilled to be hosting music concerts in the heart of Blackpool.

“We are a local company and can’t wait to be part of this exciting venture working with Marketing Blackpool.

“The Wanted and McFly are hugely popular, and to have them both headlining at the same concert will be a great day.”

What do you get when you cross one hot current boyband with one former boyband and a Strictly Come Dancing Trophy and a Jungle crown?

We may have given the game away. We also may have just confused you. We may have confused ourselves. What we were trying to say in one big breathless squeal of excitement is that The Wanted and those gorgeous McFly boys have announced they will be performing, together!

Sorry, we had to run round the room in excitement there.

The huge concert will be dual-headlined by the two bands (we get it, one of them is not better than the other, they are equally lovely) for Blackpool’s brand new Tower Festival Headland on Sunday 24th June. Right opposite Blackpool tower, where Harry was only a month ago.

It’s a while away but these grey days have us dreaming of summer and this is an event that we really like thinking about. The Wanted have been recently touring the US with Justin Bieber, achieving great early success over there with Max even tweeting this morning:

“Cant believe whats happened to me in the last 3 years….from nothing to touring america…. Thanks so much… Doin it for you guys x”

In the meantime, the McFly boys have been biding their time in the background. That is until recently, when Dougie became King of the Jungle on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here at the same time as Harry became the Strictly Come Dancing champion. They are also embarking on a UK tour and we should be able to hear some new material from the guys – we’ve been waiting a while!

All in all, a seaside weekend break with these boys thrown in, doesn’t sound half bad. Although you’d better make sure you get in early if you want a ticket. The tickets for McFly’s upcoming tour sold out within a few days!
