McFly are back! Four-part end of three-year break because they announce plans to listen to brand new songs with a one-off show at the O2 Arena in London
McFly has ended their three-year interruption by announcing a one-off headline performance at the O2 Arena in London, which will take place on November 20.
The announcement puts an end to a prolonged absence, in which the band, consisting of guitarists Danny Jones and Tom Fletcher, bass player Dougie Poynter and drummer Harry Judd, was expected to record and release their sixth studio album.
Instead, they will thank fans for their continued support by performing a wealth of previously unheard of tracks that were originally scheduled for recording on their next full release during the exclusive show, appropriately titled McFly: The Lost Songs.

Many of the new songs were composed after the release of the fifth album Above The Noise, and before they decided to form a super group with Busted.
But while the emphasis is on new music, the band will also treat fans to their back-catalog with hits, including All About You, Naturally Star Girl, One for the Radio and Shine a Light.
The unreleased songs, all of which had to appear on their sixth album, will also be made available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and all other streaming platforms.

The band recently hinted by posting their first Instagram post in two and a half years – tellingly a picture of a microphone and an invitation to a live chat on September 10.
McFly enjoyed unprecedented success after the release of debut album Room on the 3rd floor in 2004, with seven British number one singles, five top-ten albums, six sold-out tours and ten million records sold worldwide.
