McFly soar into Inverness for Summer Gig

McFly announce summer 2020 show in Bught Park

The announcement comes ahead of McFly’s comeback show at London’s O2 later this month, which sold out in just minutes. In April 2020, the band is back on the road touring, and come July they will be performing in Inverness.

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.

They will play their best-loved mega-hits such as All About YouObviouslyStar GirlOne for the Radio and Shine a Light. They will perform the cream of The Lost Songs, originally intended for Album 6, and showcase their amazing musicianship, showmanship and humour. And, knowing the guys, there might well be a surprise or two along the way…

The four-piece band has had incredible success over the years, becoming known as the youngest band ever to have an album (Room on the 3rd Floor) debut at number one – a title taken from The Beatles. The band is estimated to have sold over two million albums and 1.8 million singles in the UK and more than 10 million records worldwide. Its first single, 5 Colours in Her Hair, was released in 2004 and entered the UK Singles Chart at number one, followed closely by Obviously, which also topped the charts. The hits have followed, and the band is currently enjoying success after the sell-out of its comeback show at the O2 London, in November.

LCC Live, the biggest producer of live music events in Inverness and the North of Scotland, is bringing McFly to Inverness, as part as its Live in the City series of music events. Director, Claire Kidger, commented:

“This is another coup for us, confirming McFly, one of the greatest bands of their generation, to perform in the Highlands. The show will be in the Big Top Tent at Bught Park, which proved a popular venue last year, and means everyone can enjoy the show, no matter the weather! Come along and join us and give McFly the welcome they deserve.”

Tom Fletcher, Dougie Poynter, Danny Jones and Harry Judd will headline the Big Top Tent in Inverness’ Bught Park on Sunday 5th July 2020.

Tickets for McFly in the Big Top Tent in Inverness  go on sale on Friday (15th November 2019) at 9am and are available to purchase from Ticketline (; 0844 888 9991) or from Cafferys, Eastgate Shopping Centre, Inverness, IV2 3PP.

I've always loved music and spent my late teens and early twenties playing guitar in various bands on Lewis and Aberdeen. Other than playing in some truly terrifying pubs in Aberdeen not much came of it and life became focused on family and having a 'proper' job. Inverness Gigs is an outlet for me to quell my inner frustrated musician and the caliber of local acts has even inspired me to take my own music more seriously again. Who knows, one day I might venture back on stage under the fierce scrutiny of an Inverness Gigs reviewer! You can contact Toby direct at
