THOUSANDS of fans rocked at Haigh Country Park last night as McFly kicked off the Wigan Life Tuned-In Concerts.
Some fans travelled from Sweden, America, Brazil, Canada and Israel for the band’s first gig of the year.
McFly put on a rousing performance playing old favourites including Five Colours in Her Hair and Star Girl before telling the crowd this would be the last time they’d be playing the set ahead of their new album.
There was a huge cheer when singer and guitarist Tom Fletcher told the crowd: “We have the best fans on the planet.”
The Wigan Life “Tuned-In” Concerts continue tonight (Tuesday) with Tinie Tempah, Alesha Dixon and N-Dubz taking to the stage.
