McFly have announced they’re coming to Taunton, for a one-off summer show, as part of Live in Somerset.
The band, made up of Tom Fletcher, Dougie Poynter, Danny Jones and Harry Judd, will headline on Friday 10th July at Vivary Park, Taunton; the first artist to be announced for Live in Somerset 2020.
The announcement comes ahead of McFly’s comeback show at London’s O2 later this month, which sold out in just minutes. In April 2020, the band is back on the road touring, and come July they will be performing under the stars in Taunton.
With seven UK number-one singles, five top-ten albums, six sell-out tours and ten million records sold worldwide, McFly are without question one of the most significant British pop acts of the twenty-first century. Since hitting the big time as the youngest band ever to have a debut album go straight to number one — beating The Beatles’ long-standing record — Tom, Danny, Dougie and Harry have become one of our best-loved bands, not to mention major stars in their own right.
They will play their best-loved mega-hits such as All About You, Obviously, Star Girl, One for the Radio and Shine a Light. They will perform the cream of The Lost Songs, originally intended for Album 6, and showcase their amazing musicianship, showmanship and humour. And, knowing the guys, there might well be a surprise or two along the way…
Concert promoter, LCC Live, is bringing McFly to Taunton as part of its Live in Somerset weekend of music from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th July 2020. Director, Claire Kidger, commented:
“This is another coup for us, confirming McFly, one of the greatest bands of its generation, to perform at our popular weekend live music event. Come along and join us and give McFly the welcome they deserve.”
“This is the first of three announcements for Live in Somerset – watch this space for more news!”
