The band are the final act to take to the stage for this year’s summer season at the venue.

Thousands of locals were joined by many visitors who had travelled to Scarborough especially for the concert.

Anita Barr, of Rochdale, brought her daughter Molly, 16, and Molly’s friend Natasha along to the show.

Molly said: “I love McFly! I’ve been obsessed with them for 10 years. The ticket was my Christmas present.”

Sisters Gemma Ingham and Abbie Kennedy, of Scarborough, are also huge fans of the band.

Gemma said: “I’ve seen them about five times! I’m so glad they came to Scarborough and it’s good to see it so busy.”

With many visitors telling The Scarborough News they were staying in town all weekend, the gig was a treat not just for fans, but for local traders.
