McFly takes Newmarket by storm as All About You band impress thousands at July Course's Summer Saturday




Fans of all ages gathered at Summer Saturday's in Newmarket to listen to the popular band that rose to fame in the early 2000s.

Whilst many enjoyed the performance, everyone's a critic, especially one pigeon who let rip on band's bass player Dougie Poynter, but alas the show must go on.

In an unexpected turn of events McFly came on to the Village People's YMCA but it did just the job of warming the crowd up.

The band then went into their well known classic 'One For The Radio' and the show really began.

Whilst McFly put on a great performance it was the introduction of their fifth member who stole the show seven-year-old Audrina who had followed the band from York.

Confident Audrina turned to the crowd, her red guitar in hand and asked them what they wanted to hear.

Backed McFly and everyone in the crowd she launched into 'It's All About You', the same song Tom Fletcher the band's lead vocalist sang to his wife Giovana Fletcher, author and star of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here, on their wedding day.

Audrina wasn't the bands only young star that night as Harry Judd, the band's drummer, was joined in his role by his daughter Lola.

For many it would have been their first time back in the bustle of crowds, jamming up to the front of the stage in an attempt to get close to the band they had been eager to see for ages.

But all good things have to come to an end, and as the music stopped and the thousands rushed to the shuttle bus to get back into town, it was easy to sit back and reflect on how lucky the town has been to finally welcome back live music after such a long time of silence.
