MP!’s Battle Of The Boy Band Tours – the winner is…

7 days. 4 boy bands. Nearly 3,000 votes and hundereds of passionate and slightly deranged MP!ers – you lot spent the last week voting for which upcoming boy band tour you are most excited for. McFly were an early favourite to win, staying in the lead up until the very end, but we can now reveal the official winner of Battle Of The Boy Band Tours is…


Congrats to Tom, Jay, Nathan, Siva and Max – we’re sure they’ll put on an amazing show during The Code arena tour.

Confused? Angry? Upset? If you don’t agree with the result, let us know who YOU think should have won in the comments – it won’t change the facts, but you’ll feel a lot better afterwards.

The contenders:

JLS: The 4th Dimension tour

The Wanted: The Code arena tour

McFly: Keep Calm And Play Louder tour

Twenty Twenty: Twenty Twelve tour

(Check out all the dates on our Pop Diary here)

Category one – Setlist

JLS: They’ve managed to keep it under wraps for now, but it’s likely that we’ll hear hit singles like ‘Beat Again’, ‘Everybody In Love’, ‘She Makes Me Wanna’, ‘The Club Is Alive’ – and with the boys halfway through recording their new album, maybe we’ll be treated to a new song!

The Wanted: Apart from Jay hinting that there’s another secret medley planned, nothing else is known – however, we’ve managed to have a sneak peek at the setlist and we can safely say that our heart started racing when we saw that they boys are planning an exciting re-imagining of one of their classic tracks…

McFly: With 5 albums under their belts, it’s hard to say what to expect from the boys – but we’re sure that all the biggest hits will be showcased and we’d even bet there’ll be a surprise cover or two.

Twenty Twenty: Expect to hear the massive ‘Love To Life’ and recent single ‘Move It’ – but apart from that, your guess is as good as ours!

MP! winner: The Wanted

Category two – Support acts

JLS: The boys have enlisted the help of former The Wanted support act Starboy Nathan – seen this before and although he’s not terrible, he does have a tendency to take his shirt off a lot and we were hoping to be exposed to the next big thing.

The Wanted: Support acts overload! New band Lawson, girl group Fanfair, singer songwriter Ben Montague are all on the line-up and rumour has it that dressing room enemies Parade will also take to the stage – but nothing’s been confirmed yet!

McFly: The band are running a once in a lifetime competition where any band can be nominated for the chance to support them at different dates – a perfect chance to be introduced to brand new talent. Voting is now closed, but you can check out the Top 50 here – 26 of which will join the boys on the road!

Twenty Twenty: Lesser known bands Room 94 and FutureProof will be warming up the crowd for the Twenty Twenty boys. Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of them, there won’t be a test.

MP! winner: It’s a draw between The Wanted and McFly

Category three – Ticket prices

JLS: The cheapest available are £25 – but if you’ve got £99 lying around, why not treat yourself to the VIP package? (Tickets available here)

The Wanted: Starting at £19.50 – and remember you might be seeing 4 support acts as well as the boys. Sounds like a good deal to us! (Tickets available here)

McFly: Roughly around £31.50 – but because they’ve been on sale for a while, there’s not many left… (Tickets available here)

Twenty Twenty: Hold on to your hats penny pinchers – tickets are only £10! That’s a price that gets the MP! stamp of approval – now you’ve got no excuse not to go… (Tickets are available here)

MP! winner: Twenty Twenty

Category four – Nipple

JLS: We all know these guys can’t go for a whole day without slipping a nip. In fact we’re surprised their nipples aren’t the support act.

The Wanted: If we all agree to chant “NIPPLE” when the boys are leaving the stage, maybe Tom will come back on and give us a cheeky flash. All together now…

McFly: Harry had his almost every week on Strictly Come Dancing – so we reckon keeping them under wraps for a whole tour will be hard for him. Keep your eyes peeled.

Twenty Twenty: Errrr, probably not.

MP! winner: JLS

It’s official – our personal winner of the Boy Band Tour poll is The Wanted. We’ve seen the artwork, we’ve seen the setlist and we can’t wait to see the support acts too – but do YOU agree?

Well if you’re a JLSter, Twenty Twenty devotee or McFly super fan, fear not because now everyone has the chance to cast their vote. Go through the evidence listed above, make your decision wisely and then vote in the official poll below…
