  1. MCFLY fans will be flying high this week after finding out that the popular group will be coming to Swindon next spring.

    The band had fans in a frenzy in March when they stopped off in nearby Marlborough for a second visit in the space of three months for a signing session.

    And an announcement on the band’s official website has revealed that the band will be back in the county on March 22 as they hit the road for their Up Close and Personal tour.

    The four-piece, made up of Danny Jones, Tom Fletcher, Harry Judd and Dougie Poynter, will perform at the Oasis Leisure Centre in between dates at Southampton Guildhall and Plymouth Pavilions.

    Back in February, Danny, Tom and Harry signed copies of their single That’s The Truth at the Marlborough music shop Sound Knowledge.

    Queues stretched along the High Street as fans waited patiently to meet the heart-throbs.

    Just three months earlier, nearly 700 fans had waited their turn to get their CDs and autograph books signed by Harry and Dougie when they paid a visit to the shop.

    Fans were reassured in February that Dougie, who was taking a break from the band, would definitely join them on their UK tour, which starts in Portsmouth on March 7.

    Tom said: “He is in rehab at the moment recovering from being down and stressed, but he is getting better, although he did need a few weeks’ rest.

    “He is not going to miss any of the tour dates.”

    McFly shot to fame back in 2004 with their debut single, Five Colours In Her Hair.

    They have since gone on to record No.1 albums and singles including Obviously, Baby’s Coming Back, Transylvania, All About You, You’ve Got A Friend, Please, Don’t Stop Me Now and I’ll Be OK.

    Tickets for the latest tour go on general sale from Saturday, November 26, on and
