Adding to the growing list of impressive talent coming to the south coast over the next month, MCFLY announce their UK Before the Noise tour, kicking off right here in Southampton. And I must say, it is a show I am very excited about.
The release of McFly’s latest single ‘Party Girl’ saw the foursome undertake a musical about-turn. Incorporating an electro sound previously unheard of for the band, who are notorious for their shiny happy pop music, ‘Party Girl’ not only demonstrates a surprising muturity, but an adaptability to the changing music scene. With this is mind, you might want to rethink your expectations of the chart-topping success story that is McFly.
Yes, they will be fun and entertaining. Yes, they will play ‘Five Colours in her Hair’ and probably bounce around with their guitars a little. But following the success of their latest full record that was independently released, and the change of musical direction, I have a feeling that McFly may not be all they seem.
This will be a show with much more than just nostalgic value. With an impressive sixteen singles, five albums, and over a million record sales, the boys are at the top of their game, and their show will be nothing short of exceptional. Don’t miss it!
MCFLY play the Southampton Guildhall on October 18th
