Bars & Melody fever has hit the UK with the Britain’s Got Talent finalists currently at number 2 in the midweeks with their anti-bullying song Hopeful.
The duo gained a huge following after Simon Cowell chose them as his Golden Buzzer act during Britain’s Got Talent. This week the boys have been doing signings at HMV and have had to draft in extra security to manage the chaos.
HMV’s Senior Events Manager Simon Winter said: “We’ve not seen anything like this for some time. We had 5 Seconds Of Summer earlier in the year and thought that was pretty crazy but this is just incredible. There are hundreds of fans lining the streets, they’ve turned up from all over the country, some have even travelled from France to catch a glimpse of the boys!”
Sony Music are rush manufacturing more copies of the single as it’s selling out in HMVs across the country and they are struggling to keep up with demand.
Take a look at a couple of images of the madness below:
