As we promised in our exclusive Big Interview with the band yesterday, we’re giving you lot the chance to win tickets to see Twenty Twenty LIVE on their headline tour in May.
We’ve managed to get our mitts on one pair of tickets for every single date listed in the picture on the left – to enter, follow these simple instructions:
THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED.
“Bigger and better” music, their own headline tour and their first ever interview on everyone’s favourite pop site – things are certainly getting exciting in the world of Twenty Twenty. Read on for more details on who the boys are working with on their upcoming second album, surprises planned for their headline tour in May and how long you’ll have to wait to hear the brand spanking new tracks.
Hello Twenty Twenty, how excited are you to be talking to your favourite pop site?
Hey! We’re very excited! Isn’t this our first proper interview with you?!
Indeed it is. So, you’re back on the road with your own headline tour – what can fans expect?
Expect lots of jumping, sweating & screaming – from us! Haha, it’s going to be a non-stop fun filled show with all of your favourite Twenty Twenty songs! (more…)
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.
UPDATE: The winners of the JLS, McFly, The Wanted AND Twenty Twenty tickets will be announced at 4pm in tomorrow’s MP! mailer. You’d better subscribe here hadn’t you?
Hope you’ve got good cleaners. Today’s Comp of the Day is going to make your head explode. To celebrate our ludicrously dramatic Battle Of The Boyband Tours we’ve got a pair of tickets to the venue of your choice for the upcoming Twenty Twenty, The Wanted, JLS and McFly tours to give away. YES, ALL OF THEM! You can enter for one pair of tickets or if you’re greedy you can try for all four pairs. Who needs a lie down?
THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED
A whopping 1,395 MP!ers have voted so far in the official MP! Battle Of The Boy Band Tours poll – and three days into the competition the McFly lads are currently in the lead, with The Wanted following behind. In our quest to find out which upcoming boy band tours YOU are most excited for, things have been getting pretty heated. Here’s what some of you lot have been saying…
Zanita Reubens: “I think TW fans need to learn that playing instruments for one song ISN’T THE SAME as being a band…McFly fans get annoyed because McFly have written EVERY song…not just a couple….and they PLAY every song…not just one (and even that not that well)…they are in no ways the same!!”
ChrisTTinaMCFLY: ”I’m going with Twenty Twenty, because just everything about them in general are better than anything. I’ve been to their shows before they got signed and they put on amazing performances and they interact with you, the atmosphere is amazing and they always make an effort to meet people afterwards”
1D_Luva: ”If One Direction were on here I’d vote a million times…. but I’m gonna have to settle for JLS cos my friend is OBSESSED!!”
That last one is our favourite – good reasoning. If you want to see The Wanted overtake McFly, or want to help poor JLS and Twenty Twenty catch up, then make sure you cast your vote. Don’t forget to let all your mates know about the poll too – your favourite can only win if more of you get voting!
From signed canvases, to glow in the dark wristbands, via flashing Katy Perry head bands – the range of items that pop stars are desperate to stick their names on is greater than ever. For many MP!ers, owning pop star merchandise is almost as important as downloading the music, seeing the live show and planting a big wet one on Siva’s cheek. But are the scary men at the record labels exploiting your desire to be a band’s biggest and most dedicated fan by ripping you off?
Here at MP! we decided it was time to investigate – what are the best deals, how can you get the best bargains and is pop merchandise really overpriced? The answers to all these questions and more are below…
You can legally download Ed Sheeran’s new single Drunk on February 26th. New Skins starts in 7 days. Twenty Twenty are touring academies in May. Yes, we know it all, and can recite it back to you like normal people can their a-z. But what if you don’t have your finger firmly on pop’s pulse and an encyclopaedic knowledge of what’s up and coming? Ah, that’s when you need MP!’s Pop Diary. Event listings for all important upcoming pop events. Check it out:
We’re looking for someone to help populate the pop diary. Helpful sorts get in touch.
A long, long time ago, back in a year known as 2011, MP! (in its previous incarnation) sent fan mail to 10 major British pop stars. Pretending to be a 7-year old girl. Called Emma. Who likes sock puppets. We also sent a stamped, self-addressed envelope desperately asking the pop star – what’s your ‘favrit’ animal and will you send me a signed picture, pleeeeasse? So which pop stars love their fans, and which only love their fans’ money. Let’s find out.
Firstly the unsuspecting pop stars we pitted against each other were – JLS, The Wanted, McFly, Parade, Soundgirl, The Saturdays, Cheryl Cole, N-Dubz, Sugababes and Twenty Twenty.
Everyone knows that pop stars don’t ‘do’ queueing but it looks like they’ve made an exception today, as they’re lining up to congratulate us on our new look website. Parade, Oh My!, Twenty Twenty, The Wanted, GMD3 and Luminites have all taken time from their busy pop-star schedules to give MP! a massive shout out on twitter. So now you know where they hang out when they’re not busy recording hits, hitting high notes and spending their millions. Thanks guys.
