Pop icons McFly are the latest headline act confirmed for this year’s Eden Sessions in September.

The much-loved band will make their Eden Sessions debut on September 12, 2021.

Rita Broe, Managing Director of Eden Sessions Ltd, said today: “We can’t wait for McFly to perform on the Eden stage. They are part of British pop royalty, incredibly talented musicians with an amazing back catalogue of hits.”

With seven UK number-one singles, six top-ten albums, six sell-out tours, four million tickets and ten million albums sold worldwide, McFly are without question one of the most significant British pop acts of the 21st 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 the UK’s best-loved bands, not to mention major stars in their own right.

In November 2019 McFly played their most recent gig, ‘One Night Only’ at The O2 Arena, a sold-out stand-alone show to mark their reformation and return to music, especially for their fans.

In 2020, McFly released their highly anticipated new album Young Dumb Thrills, their first studio album in 10 years.

The singles Happiness, Tonight Is The Night, and You’re Not Special were played all over Radio 2 with the band performing on Britain’s Got Talent, Graham Norton and Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway as well as making their own documentary about their hiatus for ITV1 called All About Us.

Tickets for McFly cost £41.50 plus £5 booking fee and are now on sale to members of Inside Track. Tickets go on general sale at 12 noon on Friday May 7 at www.edenproject.com.

Eden previously announced Ben Howard (appearing on September 11) and Snow Patrol (September 16) for the series of Sessions in September.

Also confirmed are two rescheduled shows for next year’s (2022) Eden Sessions.

My Chemical Romance will take the stage in front of the Biomes on May 17, 2022, and Lionel Richie will play on June 14, 2022. Original tickets remain valid for these shows and any other show that is rescheduled.

In September 2019 The Eden Project and global live events company AEG Presents announced a new partnership, Eden Sessions Ltd, to run the Eden Sessions.
