Colchester United are delighted to announce our third concert at the Weston Homes Community Stadium will be a homecoming for one of the UK's biggest music stars, Olly Murs.
Olly will be coming to Colchester on June 10th 2017 as part of a 20 date tour around the UK. And for the singer from Witham, it gives him the chance to play in his home county.
Olly said: “I am thrilled to play outdoors in Colchester, so close to home. Outdoor shows are so much fun and I am looking forward to performing my biggest songs on my biggest outdoor tour!"
Following on from his spring arena tour, Olly will be making his way around the country, starting on Friday 2nd June through to Saturday 19th August, with more dates to follow.
2016 has been another incredible year for Olly Murs which has seen him celebrate his fourth successive number one album ’24 HRS’, becoming the most successful solo artist ever to come from the X Factor.
New single ‘Years and Years’ is the new album’s centre piece; an expansive, explosive, spine-tingling belter and follows the radio favourites ‘You Don’t Know Love’ and ‘Grow Up’ which Olly recently performed on the X Factor.
Before his huge summer tour, the spring of 2017 will see Olly play 23 UK shows including 3 O2’s and the opening night of the Teenage Cancer Trust shows, confirming his reputation as one of Britain’s very best live performers.
Since Olly shot to fame in 2009, he has recorded four multi-platinum albums, produced 4 Number 1 singles with total record sales exceeding 10 million. ’24 HRS’ is the follow up to the acclaimed million selling album ‘Never Been Better’.
Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, CEO of LHG Live, promoter said, “We are delighted to be working with Olly Murs on his UK Summer Tour! Olly is one of the best male solo artists in the UK and the perfect artist for our venues. We expect each show to have a great party atmosphere and look forward to hearing his most popular hits.”
