Olly Murs

Everyone loves cheeky chappy Olly Murs. He shot to fame whilst competing on the sixth series of hit competition show The X Factor, narrowly missing out on taking the top spot, and became a household name by the time he released his debut single Please Don’t Let Me Go which shot straight to #1. The Essex singer has since sold a staggering 10 million records worldwide.

November 2016 saw the release of his fifth studio album entitled 24 Hrs. The Silver certified record is his fourth album release to rise to the peak of the UK charts and infectious tunes contained plus his incredible voice made it a late contender for album of the year.

Following the release of the chart-topping album, Olly has announced a summer tour for 2017 and is sure to thrill at every performance. Tickets are already selling out so don’t hang around and book yours today!
