Look who's coming to Newmarket Racecourse next summer: It's . . . McFly

McFly will headline Newmarket Races' family-friendly Summer Saturday Live on August 29 next year.

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.

Tom has become a wildly bestselling children’s author; Danny a TV mainstay with his regular appearances as a judge on The Voice Kids; Dougie has combined his burgeoning acting career with a passionate role as an environmental campaigner; and Strictly winner Harry has wowed West End audiences, starring in the hit dance show Rip it Up.

Having taken a break after touring as the pop phenomenon that was McBusted — the band return with a spectaular live show playing their best-loved mega-hits such as All About You, Obviously, Star Girl, One for the Radio and Shine a Light.

Sophie Able, General Manager of Newmarket Racecourses, said: "After delighting the Newmarket audience as one half of supergroup McBusted in 2015, we are excited to welcome McFly back to headline the July Course in their own right. Taking place on the August bank holiday, Summer Saturday Live is a wonderful event for the whole family - with McFly headlining we are sure this will be an unforgettable and fitting end to the summer.

"On Friday, we will also be announcing our first Newmarket Nights headliner."
