McFly were a niave, fresh faced boy band. Kind of like a Boyzone with personality and a sound that the genre was crying out for. But they were still, just a boy band. They could play instruments and the could sing, but many tipped them to be round for a year or so and then fade away. That was ten years ago and now…
To celebrate McFly’s tenth anniversary, the band have announced that they will play two very special shows at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall this September.
McFly – Tenth Anniversary
Thursday 19th September Royal Albert Hall, London
Friday 20th September Royal Albert Hall, London
To kick off the band’s tenth birthday celebrations, McFly will be treating fans to performances of some of their biggest hits, along with some special guests in the legendary surroundings of the Royal Albert Hall – which over the years has played host to musical icons like Frank Sinatra, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, The Who, Led Zeppelin, and Elton John.

The shows follow the band’s recent sold-out ‘Best Of McFly’ tour which saw the boys play 20 shows across the UK after the release of ‘Memory Lane’ – a collection of McFly’s greatest hits from their early smashes ‘Five Colours In Her Hair’ , ‘Obviously’ and ‘Star Girl’, to chart hits such as ‘All About You’, ‘One For The Radio’ and ‘Party Girl’, alongside the band’s recent and biggest selling single ‘Shine A Light’ Feat. Taio Cruz.
McFly are undoubtedly one of the most significant pop groups of the past decade. During this time, their 5 studio albums have racked up cumulative sales of over 10 million, seven UK No.1 singles, five top 10 albums, numerous sell out tours and over 3 million Twitter followers collectively. 2011 also saw a double reality win as McFly took over UK TV screens with Harry winning ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ and Dougie ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’.
