Two of the biggest names in British pop music, McFly and Sugababes, will join forces to play a massive co-headline concert at Mercedes-Benz World at Brooklands, Weybridge on Saturday 12th July 2008. This will be the only time this summer the two acts perform together on the same bill.

For anyone with half an ear trained on chart music over the last decade, McFly and Sugababes are part of the soundtrack.

McFly topped the charts with their first single ‘Five Colours In Her Hair’ in 2004 and never looked back. They became one of the biggest bands in the country as hits like ‘Obviously’, ‘All About You’, ‘Please Please’ and ‘Baby’s Coming Back’ went straight to number one, and albums Room On The 3rd Floor, Wonderland and Motion In The Ocean sold by the lorry-load. Last year’s Greatest Hits album summed up their achievements so far, and fans can expect all the hits at Mercedes-Benz World.

Sugababes also released a Greatest Hits album in 2007. Overloaded brought together their 14 hit singles - from ‘Overload’, Freak Like Me’ and ‘Round Round’ to ‘Hole In The Head’ and ‘Push The Button’ - which have sold over 2 million copies between them. The girls added to this enviable catalogue of daring, effervescent pop songs with this year's Number 1 album Changes, featuring the smash hit ‘About You Now'. With all these pop classics to chose from, Sugababes live is one giant sing-along from start to finish.

Add these two Great British bands together and you’ve got a night in pop music heaven!

McFly’s Tom Fletcher said: “We jumped at the chance to play this gig. We’ve heard the venue’s going to be brilliant and to do it alongside Sugababes will make it really special.” Sugababes’ Keisha Buchanan added “We’re really looking forward to this gig. Getting to play outdoors in the summer for so many fans will be a real treat. It’ll be a big celebration of pop music.”

Tickets go on sale on Friday 18th April 2008 at 9am from Ticketmaster and See Tickets.

Peter O'Halloran, Managing Director of Mercedes-Benz World, commented : "We are looking forward to welcoming both McFly and the Sugababes to Mercedes-Benz World. We are especially pleased that this concert will attract a younger audience which, combined with Elton John appearing on both the Friday and Sunday night, means we will see our widest-ranging audiences to date."

The show is in addition to the two previously announced Elton John shows at the same venue on Friday 11th and Sunday 13th July and completes the line-up for an amazing weekend at this fabulous addition to the UK’s major league of concert venues.
