McFly have been added to the Pub in the Park line-up set for St Albans this September.

The chart-topping 5 Colours in Her Hair and All About You band will headline the Friday night festivities in Verulamium Park on September 9.

Teasing the announcement on Wednesday, an email to PITP subscribers said: "We are super excited to announce an incredible new headline music act that will set the stage alight on Friday 9th September in St Albans."

Today, organisers confirmed that band as McFly, who have already wowed fans at Pub in the Park's Marlow and Warwick legs earlier in the year, and played a set at Glastonbury.

Posting on Instagram, Pub in the Park wrote: "The wait is over! We're beyond excited to reveal that our NEW St Albans Friday Evening headliner is... @mcflymusic!"

The rock-pop quartet consists of Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd. Drummer Judd won the 2011 series of Strictly Come Dancing.

British boyband royalty, McFly have scored seven UK number one singles, including Obviously, I'll Be OK, their cover of Queen's Don't Stop Me Now, and Star Girl.
