Pop band McFly are headlining a concert in Rhyl, Denbighshire, to coincide with the Olympic Games’ closing ceremony.

The show at the Rhyl Events Arena will also play host to other acts, including the punk and dance group Dive Bella Dive.

The 8,000 seater arena opens its doors at 14:30 BST and will screen the closing ceremony in London.

It comes after the Access All Eirias concert in Colwyn Bay screened the opening ceremony two weeks ago.

A spectacular closing ceremony starts from 21:00 BST.

After 16 days of competition at the Olympic Park and Cardiff, London will hand over to 2016 host city Rio de Janeiro in what promises to be a stunning show involving 3,500 performers in the stadium.

Artistic director Kim Gavin said the ceremony would be “the best after-show party of all time”.

McFly Rhyl

CHART-toppers McFly have a special link with North Wales, and headed to the region to record material for their latest album. Now they’re looking forward to returning to help kick-start a revamped Rhyl venue, and bring the London Olympics to a close.

They will take to the stage on Sunday afternoon to perform their hits at Rhyl Events Arena, which for the first time has been turned into an enclosed, ticket-only space.

The show – which civic leaders hope will the first of many by big names in the Arena – also features The Struts and Dive Bella Dive, and will be followed by a free, live streaming of the Olympic Games’ closing ceremony on huge screens.

McFly bassist Dougie Poynter revealed the band find themselves back on the North Wales coast, after a brief visit in January when they came to gather material for their new album, which is still being recorded..

“It’s going to be mad in Rhyl,” said Dougie, who was recently crowned King of the Jungle in TV’s I’m A Celebrity… .

“We’ve got a full set so that means we’ve got lots of time to have fun and mess around on stage and that’s when we are at our best. We love coming to Wales, the people are awesome and we love your accents.

“We were in Holyhead at the start of the year to write some material. It was the first time we’d been there and it was amazing. We didn’t really know what to expect but it was so picturesque.

“There is actually one song in particular on the new album that was inspired by the area.

“Danny (Jones, the lead singer) is producing the new album too, which is cool because there’s no middle man, so it’s the first time it will just be 100% McFly.”

It has been a busy year for the band with Dougie’s stint in the jungle, plus drummer Harry Judd winning Strictly Come Dancing, but Dougie says there was never a doubt of the band splitting,

“It must seem like we’ve been apart for ages but we’re still very much together making music. We never go anywhere apart and we are always together behind the scenes.

“After Harry did Strictly he was actually offered to do a solo album for Mother’s Day, but he’s a drummer and doesn’t sing, I don’t think any of us would ever go solo.”

“We’ve got two shows coming up in LA and New York. We’re pretty much going over for fun. We know we’ve got fans over there so we thought we’d go and put on a show for them.”

MCFLY have charmed audiences worldwide with their fine-craftly pop rock sound.

Drummer Harry Judd, aged 26, is looking forward to the lads’ gig at the Events Arena, Rhyl from 2.30pm on Sunday, August 12.

He said: “We’ve performed in North Wales a couple of times and we’ve always had a good time.

Denbighshire council organised the Rhyl show to mark the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony, and the Essex-born sticksman is looking for to the Games.

He said: “I think everyone’s pretty excited it as it draws nearer.

“I had the honour of carrying the Olympic Torch on its final leg in Blackpool, so I’m super pumped about it.”

Harry said the band has recorded 11 new tracks for their sixth album, and are working on a further five songs.

He said: “I’m sure more will be written, so it’s always quite tough to decide what actually goes on the album and even the 15 songs we’ve got are quite varied.

“I think it always makes for a good album.”

While known for the pure pop of songs like 5 Colours in Her Hair and Obviously, recent albums have seen McFly embrace rock and synthpop.

While the foursome are thankful for their huge fanbase and a slew of hits, Harry said the general public tended to pigeon-hole them.

He said added: “Especially on our fourth and fifth album there’s stuff on there that would surprise people, so I think it’s often the challenge for us to keep progressing and trying to get more and more of a new audience listening to our music.

“It’s a hard one becuase we’ve been very successful and we’re grateful, but I think we’ve got that constant challenge of not getting the credit we think we deserve.”

Tickets are £20. To book, call the Pavilion Theatre box office on 01745 330 000 or book online at www.rhylpavilion.co.uk.
