“I can’t wait to get back out on the road and just start singing and seeing the fans.” Olly Murs
Cheeky Essex chappie Olly Murs makes his Abu Dhabi debut at Du Forum later this month. Murs, one of the UK’s best live entertainers, kicked off his 2017 Spring Tour in Glasgow in March and will perform in the capital for one night only on Friday 28th April.
Murs, 32 rose to fame as a young auditionee on the sixth series of The X Factor back in 2009. His confident rendition of Stevie Wonder’s Superstition in his first audition followed by consistent weekly performances impressed his then mentor Simon Cowell so much so that runner-up Murs launched his recording career in a joint record deal with Cowell and Epic Records. He released his debut double platinum self-titled album ‘Olly Murs’ in November 2010.
BBC Radio 1 Teen Award winner and BRIT award nominee Murs has released a further four albums to date with catchy pop tunes such as Please Don’t Let Me Go, Heart Skips A Beat featuring Rizzle Kicks, Dance With Me Tonight, Dear Darlin’, Troublemaker featuring Flo Rida and Grow Up. He is currently promoting his latest track Years and Years from his new album, 24 Hours. Keeping it in the X Factor family 2015 winner Louisa Johnson is the tour’s support act.
With a handful of number one singles under his belt and worldwide record sales reaching over ten million Murs is one of the UK’s foremost and popular modern day pop stars. I first had the privilege to see his energetic showmanship back in 2013 when he was the support act for British singer-songwriter Robbie Williams ‘Take the Crown Stadium Tour’ at Wembley Stadium in London, where the pair even sang a duet together too.
Natural born entertainer Murs is no stranger to the UAE having charmed the audience at the Dubai Jazz Festival in 2014. The multi-talented performer is also a first-rate dancer, a TV and radio presenter, a decent footballer and even once held the Guinness World record for the most cups of tea made in one hour (he and Battlefront campaigner Alex Loughlin made an incredible 496 cups of tea in sixty minutes)
