Wanna know something crazy? McFly have been around for 10 years. TEN YEARS. I remember bopping around to Five Colours In Her Hair way back in high school. They haven't really brought out anything new recently, other than Love Is Easy (I can forgive them for that. I think), but having not seen them live for a while, I thought it'd be pretty ace to reminisce along to some of their biggest hits and take a walk down 'Memory Lane'.
My friend Lauren came down for the occasion, and after a wander in Camden and a Nandos, we went to Wembley - for my first time ever. We managed to miss James Bourne supporting, which we decided was both a blessing and a curse (it's a love/hate relationship...), and only caught a few songs from the support band that I can't even remember the name of. But who cares, McFly!
Alongside the great song choices, there was also plenty of onstage chat from the guys, along with some fun elements to the stage show, including brass solos and fire during Lies (above!). For anyone who writes McFly off as another talentless pop band, listen to them play one of their 'heavier' (for want of a better word) songs live, and it's clear how musically talented the four-piece really are.
The night ended with All About You and The Heart Never Lies, both songs that definitely brought on the sniffles to a large part of the crowd. I might have even got slightly emotional myself.
But if you tell anyone that, I might have to kill you.
