McFly are back with O2 Arena show and ‘The Lost Songs’ album

It’s the news that Galaxy Defenders around the world have been patiently waiting for – McFly are back!

Earlier this morning, the band – made up of Danny Jones, Harry Judd, Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter – held a press conference to announce a one-off reunion show at London’s O2 Arena. They also confirmed that they’ll be releasing an album called The Lost Songs, featuring the songs which should have been released as part of their elusive sixth album which sadly never saw the light of day.

Kicking off their press conference with an impressive video montage which highlighted their incredible list of achievements over the years, the band made their entrance and revealed that on the 20th of November, they will be headlining a one-off show at London’s O2 Arena, a venue they’ve never played as McFly. The gig will see the band perform some of their best known hits including ‘It’s All About You’ and ‘Shine A Light’, in addition to never-played-before material.

In the run up to the show, McFly will also be releasing one track a week, taken from The Lost Songs as a thank you to their fans for their loyal support over the years throughout all elements of their career including their time as McFly, McBusted, during their hiatus and their solo projects. The tracks will be freely available on Spotify and all major platforms, with fans finally being able to hear the songs that should have been released back in 2011.

It’s been almost 10 years since we last had a new album from McFly, with their fifth offering Above The Noise being released back in 2010. The band recorded their sixth album in 2011 however, it eventually got put on hold due to the formation of McBusted, with Busted members Matt Willis and James Bourne. The supergroup went on to release their own album and toured intensively across the country.

In 2016, McFly went on an Anthology tour across Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester and London, playing all five of their albums across three nights in each city. However, since then the band have been focused on their own individual projects. Amongst their many solo achievements, both Danny and Dougie ventured back into music, with Danny releasing solo material and Dougie fronting a band called INK. Tom is a best selling children’s author, whilst Harry most recently danced his way onto the West End in Rip It Up the 60s.

Now, the four-piece are back together where they belong and we hope that this is just the beginning of the new era of McFly. As they said during this morning’s press conference, McFly’s here forever…

Tickets for McFly’s show at the O2 Arena go on sale on Friday 13th September.
