McFly dazzle the crowd at CarFest and get back on stage after an 18 month hiatus amid the pandemic

They’ve not been able to play a live gig in 18 months after the coronavirus pandemic cancelled shows.  

And McFly ensured to dazzle the crowd as they finally were able to take to the stage again at CarFest in Tattenhall, Cheshire, on Sunday.

The band –  Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd – wowed the audience by performing some of their most popular hits including All About You.
