McFly covered Tinie Tempah’s ‘Pass Out’ during an eventful headline set on Summer Sundae Weekender 2011’s final day.
The four-piece, augmented by a keyboard player and two backing singers, opened with ‘Party Girl’, and were faced with the weekend’s biggest crowd, with a hardcore of screaming fans waving banners at the front.

Bassist Dougie Poynter took centre stage for ‘Transylvania’, with drummer Harry Judd begging him to “sing it properly” and joking that the full moon looked like singer/guitarist Tom Fletcher.

The band played hits ‘Star Girl’, and ‘5 Colours In Her Hair’, which featured an extended outro where singer/guitarist Danny Jones fired t-shirts into the crowd.

A PA announcement about a missing child led the band to start a chant of the boy’s name, jokingly declaring themselves “heroes” when he was found.

A medley of ‘All About You’ and ‘Obviously’ followed, along with the ‘Pass Out’ cover, which saw Jones at the crowd barriers, and main set closer ‘The Heart Never Lies’.

The band then encored with ‘One For The Radio’ and ‘Shine A Light’ before bidding farewell.
