McFly To Celebrate 21 Years With Massive O2 Arena Show

It’s been 21 years since McFly first formed, a journey which has taken them from their breakthrough hit Five Colours In Her Hair to last year’s full-force rock album Power To Play. Along the way Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd have scored seven #1 singles, seven Top 10 albums, 10 million sales, a BRIT Award, sold-out countless arena shows and still remain the youngest band to ever have a debut album go straight to number 1, beating The Beatles.

The quartet are celebrating their 21st birthday by playing a massive show at London’s O2 Arena on 10th October.

Harry Judd says: “It’s crazy to think that it has been 21 years since McFly was formed and we all moved into a house together! We don’t take it for granted that after all this time people still want to hear new music from us and come to see us play live. As a band we’re always looking forward at what’s next, but this show will be a fun opportunity to reflect on our career so far. And what better place to throw a 21st birthday party than at The O2!”

After more than two decades in the game, McFly have continued to push boundaries, last year’s Power To Play was the album they also wanted to make – a larger-than-life rush of hard rock and pop-punk thrills. Their touring in support of the album took them from two shows in a day in London’s sweaty, intimate Underworld right through to the Royal Variety Performance via a massive headline show at Alexandra Palace.

Now, they prepare to play all their hits and fan favourites from the past twenty-one years for a gig not to be missed by any McFly fans. News of The O2 show adds to McFly’s 2024 tour schedule which also includes big outdoor shows and select festival dates, and follows Danny Jones showcasing his incredible voice and winning this year’s Masked Singer as the wonderfully entertaining Piranha!
