HAVING racked up 15 top 10 singles and five top 20 albums since their debut in 2004, the boys returned to the North East with King of the Jungle Dougie and Strictly Come Dancing champion Harry to a frenzy of screaming girls.

The stage was set amid the historic buildings overlooking the sea – the perfect setting for the outdoor event. The only problem was the weather. The wind was bitter and the clouds looked perilous as they loomed over Tynemouth.

But enter McFly, and the sun shone like a beacon on the stage and the winds ceased, prompting base player Dougie to say: “This is what our music does, it brings the sun out.” True or not, it certainly helped the freezing crowd.

As for the band, the temperature was no issue for them. They never stood still, often running and dancing while strumming away, resulting in the removal of some clothes (top layers of course, children were present). The girls bouncing eagerly at the front very much appreciated this, judging by the screams.

Cheeky lead singer Danny could not resist attempting a Geordie accent, however he could only muster “why aye man”, with anything else sounding Welsh.

He controlled the audience easily with the help of second lead, Tom, both clearly enjoying being in front of a sea of girls.

The set list included material from their early catalogue, Five Colours In Her Hair, Obviously, and All About You to name a few, before playing some songs from their soon-to-be-released sixth album, which they are in the process of recording. If those sample tracks were anything to go by, the album will probably be another top 20 hit.

Before closing, more hits followed: We Found Love, What Makes You Beautiful, and Year 3000 by former rival band Busted, before bowing out with Shine A Light.

By which point, the sun had gone.
