Mcfly Close New Website On Launch Day

British pop stars MCFLY were forced to shut down their new official website just hours after it launched on Friday (01Oct10) - because an influx of eager online fans crashed the server.
Loyal followers of the Obviously hitmakers rushed to register on the site, dubbed Super City, on Friday morning after the boy 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.
And 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.com 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."
