Back once again as a four piece are McFly. Tom, Dougie, Harry and Danny today announced a 2016 UK summer tour, playing across London, Glasgow, Birmingham and Manchester.

The Anthology Tour will involve 3 nights in each city with each venue featuring a different set list from a different album plus of course some of the bands biggest tracks.

Kicking things off on the first night in each city will be songs from ’Room on The Third Floor’, the second night will have songs from albums ’Wonderland’ and ’Motion In The Ocean’, and finally the third will have tracks from ’Radio:ACTIVE’ and ’Above The Noise’. 

Having been away as a band over the last few years this is the tour fans have been waiting for, a chance to see the band play all their smash hits and album tracks from their back catalogue.

Talking exclusively to 1883 Tom said: "After doing two massive Arena tours with McBusted, we really wanted to do something different for this tour to herald the return of McFly. So we’re playing some iconic rock venues that will allow our fans to experience the songs in a much more up close and personal environment."

Danny adds: "We’re going to play every song from every album over three nights in each city, plus some surprises. So it’s a mammoth set to rehearse, but really exciting!"

Harry explains how their families will be part of the tour too. "We’re going to bring our wives and children on the road. Both Tom and I are new parents so it we’ll have to work out the timings around the kids going to bed before the shows start! And we’ll need to work out nappy changes too."

For Dougie this tour has seen a return from LA where he has spent much of the last year focusing on acting and modelling work.

"For these shows it’s just going to be us four on the stage, no gimmicks, just playing the music and all the songs we’ve written over the last 12 years. 

I’ve been based in LA for quite a while now taking acting lessons and learning my craft, so it’s great to be back in the UK again with the band and playing shows."

McFly are undoubtedly one of the most significant British pop groups of the past 12 years. With 5 studio albums, 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.  After a successful Greatest Hits album and ’10 Year Anniversary’ concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, 2014 saw the band form a supergroup with Matt Willis and James Bourne from Busted, McBusted, The band achieved huge success, completing two massive sold out Arena tours across the UK and Ireland and headlining Hyde Park London.
