McFly were due to reunite for their first live tour dates since 2013 at the end of June. However the tour will now begin on 12 September as Harry spends the next few months focusing on his recovery.
The All About You singers will perform in four different cities – London, Glasgow, Birmingham and Manchester – in June. They will play three nights in each city, performing a different set list each night from their five studio albums.
McFly last toured together in 2013.They formed the supergroup McBusted with James Bourne and Matt Willis later that year, and performed two tours together before it was announced that Charlie Simpson had re-joined the Busted line-up in November.
More recently the group have been spending some time apart to pursue other projects, which for Harry involves focusing on fatherhood, after he and his wife Izzy welcomed their daughter Lola Rose Emma Judd in January.
