First of all, Merry Xmas everyone!!!
And as a gift for you all this xmas, here’s a new interview and photoshoot of Dougie with 1883 Magazine, he talks McFly, tour, LA, acting… you can see by yourself reading it below. I also added all the pics from the photoshoot to the gallery so you can enjoy the view too:P

All the credit for the pics goes to Asia Werbel.

[x19]PHOTOSHOOTS > 2016 > 1883 MAGAZINE PHOTOSHOOT

Dougie Poynter first burst onto the scene back in 2004 as one quarter of beloved pop band McFly when he was just a young teen. In their career, spanning over fourteen years, the band has amassed 19 top 10 singles, 5 albums and have just completed their 14th tour in September, after postponing it due to Harry Judd slipping a disc.

1883 caught up with McFly’s charming bass guitarist, after making him swing from a few metal poles, to talk the recent tour, being a musical influence, warming up in LA and what the actual hell is a Mary Berry!

Hey, thanks for swinging around on those metal poles for us.

[Laughs] No problem!

At least you don’t have to go to the gym today. That’s arm day done!

Working out I usually suck at it but that was the one thing I’m actually good at.

So, today’s shoot was fine for you then!

Yeah, if it was anything to do with legs, I would’ve sucked.

Leg day is awful though.

Leg is horrible! But I’m constantly doing leg day though, because these things just will not get any bigger.

Oh, really?

I’m an ectomorph.

What’s that?

It one of the figures, there’s like ectomorph and endomorph. I’m definitely ectomorph, I just burn it all off.

That’s convenient at Christmas time, you can just pig out and its fine.

Yeah but not for a dude though, but I guess so [laughs].

So, you’ve finished touring…

Yeah finished touring about three months ago, is it three? I think it’s three months ago now.

And you’ve just released your live album called anthology off the back of that, so how was touring as just McFly instead of as a super group?

Touring was cool, it was really cool. It’s always good fun to hang with the guys it was going form a really big production that was McBusted which was like every single song had some kind of big production element to it. To go back to literally like zero production. In fact, I think we didn’t even have a truck on this tour we just had like a trailer with just amplifiers in it. We didn’t take our own PA we just used the house PA.

Did it feel weird to return to four after 18 months as being a pretty big group?

No actually because McBusted was 18 months McFly has been 13, 14 years. So, it didn’t really feel weird at all.

How did it feel revisiting some of your older songs, some of which you have never played live before?

The most stressful thing was playing 66 songs in total over three nights, I mean that’s a lot to remember.

Were there any songs where you forgot the chords and the lyrics?

Oh, yeah there was some songs I hadn’t played since I was 16. The only thing that was going through my head the entire time was don’t fuck up! Don’t fuck up! Don’t fuck up!

I mean that’s a pretty solid motto! How did you think your music has evolved and changed with you?

Sorry, my hands smell odd, probably swinging from the poles. But yeah everything seems to be a reaction to the previous. In every single way from the way we play it to the types of songs that they are. Everything is a reaction to the last one right up until our last album that we released six years ago.

Do you think they represent the stages of your life you were at when you made them or not?

I think you can definitely tell like what was going through our heads. I mean they’re all about girls [laughs].

Since this tour was about looking back over what you’ve done, what would you say to your younger self?

Mmhhh. I don’t know there’s a lot but is it really a good idea to go back in time and change things? I don’t know.

Umm, whatever it is don’t do it. If you think it’s a bad idea it probably is.
…keep reading.

The official McFly USA facebook page posted a poll for all the US fans to vote in which other cities of the country they want McFly to perform apart from NY and LA. If your city is not on the list you can add it to vote for it but please keep in mind that this is ONLY for USA fans as the post itself says on the page, don’t add other countries to the poll as some people did.

Great news for McFly, they’re doing 4 shows in USA and the four shows are already SOLD OUT. Today the tickets for the second shows in L.A. and NY went on sale and they were sold out in minutes!!!

Those are amazing news for all the US fans as they will probably come back next year for a tour as this shows that they really can have success there. So if you’re from the USA be sure that this is the first time they go to perform in years but won’t be the last for sure.

McFly is coming to the United States of America. Just last week, they started selling tickets for two American shows but unfortunately both shows sold out within a few minutes. The good news is that just added two more U.S. dates. Tickets will go on sale on Friday(July 27th) 10:00 am local venue time at Ticketmaster.com. Check out the full U.S. tour roster below:

September 7 – Los Angeles, CA – The Roxy (On sale July 27)
September 10 – Los Angeles, CA – The Roxy (SOLD OUT)
September 13 – New York, NY – Gramercy Theatre (SOLD OUT)
September 14 – New York, NY – Gramercy Theatre (On sale July 27)

McFly are another British pop band only they’ve been around a lot longer than the current English pop sensations One Direction and The Wanted. Even though the boys are really not much older than the heartthrobs of 1D, I can still seeing the McFlys giving them a little competition. If the sold out shows are any indicator, it sounds like McFlys are ready to take over American airwaves soon!

Have you already discovered McFly? Are you going to one their upcoming shows? Do you think they’re going to be a huge hit?
