McFly Announce UK Arena Tour
Following a string of sold-out intimate gigs to celebrate the release of their fifth studio album Above The Noise, McFly return to play first arena tour in two years.
Next Spring will see McFly play 13 dates across the country in their biggest ever UK Arena tour including stops at the Birmingham LG Arena and Manchester MEN Arena, culminating in a final show at Wembley.
Fresh from five sold-out intimate UK dates in October to preview the band’s album Above The Noise, McFly return to what they know: playing to huge audiences in sold-out arenas. Having recently conquered colossal venues around the world, McFly are excited to return and showcase their infectious and soulful electro-pop sound across UK venues for the first time in two years.
McFly will be playing at the following venues next year:
12 March 2011 Nottingham Trent FM Arena
14 March 2011 Belfast Odyssey Arena
16 March 2011 Dublin 02 Arena
18 March 2011 Sheffield Motorpoint Arena
19 March 2011 Manchester MEN Arena
20 March 2011 Brighton Centre
22 March 2011 Cardiff CIA Arena
23 March 2011 Bournemouth BIC
26 March 2011 Glasgow SECC
27 March 2011 Newcastle Metro Radio Arena
29 March 2011 Liverpool Echo Arena
30 March 2011 Birmingham LG Arena
01 April 2011 London Wembley Arena
Two years in the making, McFly recently launched the ground breaking Super City. The website provides worldwide fans with unrivalled access to the band; it has citizens rather than visitors where fans can subscribe to access further content including albums, demos and webchats. A week’s free access to Super City comes with each ticket purchase via email.
As well as the Super City, November saw the release of McFly’s fifth studio album Above The Noise, and another Top 5 single Shine A Light with UK hitmaker Taio Cruz. With a fanbase that now stretches around the world and having recently entered a joint venture with their original major label home, McFly have succeeded beyond their own expectations.
‘We just didn’t have any fear,’ says singer Tom Fletcher. ‘We learnt to completely rethink what McFly could be.’
