The boys of UK band McFly have been working on something special for the fans for a few years.
On Friday, they planned to launch their brand new website and fan club, dubbed Super City. The site will allow fans to have exclusive access to the guys and unique content, including new songs, demos, and also live chats.
Because an influx of eager online fans crashed the server. Loyal followers rushed to register on the site on Friday morning after the band promised to personally meet the first fans to join.
But the heavy web traffic resulted in thousands being unable to gain access and the group decided to close the website until the problem could be fixed. Singer/guitarist Tom Fletcher admits it was tough to pull the site just hours after its launch.
In a series of posts on his Twitter page, he writes, "It's been a long and hectic day. We've gone from one end of the emotional scale to the other! But I know we've done the right thing and our decision is what will be best for you all. Hopefully it won't be too long before the gates open and we're all in the Super City together. I was hoping to be chilling in my Super City room with you all, chatting all night but that'll just have to wait a few days! Next time you fly into Super City you won't believe what awaits you! Thanks for today. Fletcher out."
