McFly have postponed their 11-date UK tour - which was due to start in April - until October, amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic
McFly have postponed their UK tour.
The 'Love Is Easy' hitmakers have become the latest artists to push back their upcoming tour dates as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, as the UK government has temporarily banned all gatherings of more than two people, unless they are from the same household.
McFly – comprised of Tom Fletcher, Harry Judd, Dougie Poynter, and Danny Jones – were due to head out on an 11-date tour of the UK in April and May, but will instead be hitting the same cities at the end of the year, in October and November.
In a message posted to Twitter, they wrote: "Following the latest government advice we are very sad to announce that we are rescheduling our upcoming April / May UK 2020 tour.
"The safety and health of our fans is our utmost priority. Look after each other & see you very soon.
"Love Tom, Danny, Harry & Dougie (sic)"
Following the announcement, drummer Harry shared a similar message on his own Twitter account, along with the rescheduled tour dates.
In a second tweet, he then also added: "We can't wait to see you in Oct/Nov, only 6 months away. Until then, keep yourselves safe and look after each other. X (sic)"
McFly announced their original tour dates in September last year, which came shortly after they released new original material in the form of 'The Lost Songs', which was a compilation of material from the McFly vaults, accumulated after the release of their last album, 'Above The Noise', and before the launch of collaborative project McBusted.
'The Lost Songs' – which is comprised of songs originally intended for their unreleased sixth album – was made freely available on Spotify and all major platforms, after the band released one song per week.

18 – Newcastle – Utilita Arena
