Mcfly blog

If you’ve read my blog before you’ll know that if it’s live, I’m up for it. And the more random the better.

So when Layla Anna-Lee invited team Red 24 to a McFly gig in Reading (she knows the band, don’t you know) then of course it was a resounding yes.

I knew I was in trouble when I asked someone for directions to the venue in Reading, at which point she looked me up and down, laughed, and said, “You’re going to the McFly gig!?”

Who knew that it would be a 95% female teenage audience?

But in amongst the near deafening screams something very weird happened. McFly can really play. And I mean REALLY play. Like as tight and as musically on it as any band I’ve ever seen. I know, I know. I was sober too.

So if you ever get invited to a gig where you’re double the average age, and outnumbered 9 – 1 on your gender, go. You might just discover the band you never knew existed.

All together now……. ‘It’s all about you, it’s all about you baby.’
