Olly Murs to play Telford show
Pop sensation Olly Murs is set to perform in Telford next year.
The 36-year-old singer/songwriter will play the QEII Arena on June 26 as part of his headline UK tour.
The Witham artist will perform his biggest hits, including tracks from his recently certified triple platinum album ‘Never Been Better’.
Olly said: “To all my Telford fans, I’m so excited to come and perform for you at this beautiful location. See you there.”
The gig is promoted by leading Welsh promoter Orchard Live, whose Director, Pablo Janczur said: “Olly’s one of the UK’s biggest performers and will be a massively popular attraction for Telford next summer when we can hopefully get back to seeing some great live music.”
Cllr Shaun Davies, Leader of Telford & Wrekin Council said they were thrilled to be hosting the concert.
He said: "We are delighted that working with our partner that another huge star is coming to Telford which will attract visitors from far and wide, bringing money into our town for local businesses.
"We hope that this gives everyone something to look forward to during these difficult times.
"The show is many months away and hopefully the country will be in much more positive space where people will once again be able to enjoy outdoor entertainment with family and friends.
"The council over the years have brought big names to the Telford Town Park and we are delighted to be working with a partner who is taking our vision to the next level."
First coming to national attention for coming second in the sixth series of The X Factor in 2009, Olly is best known for hit singles such as Troublemaker, Dear Darlin', Dance with Me Tonight, Heart Skips a Beat, Wrapped Up and many more.
The star recently captained England in this year's Soccer Aid, and is looking to retain his crown as winning judge on his third series of The Voice, which has currently been postponed at the semi-final stages.
He is also working on new music to be shared next year.
The show precedes Tom Jones' appearance at the venue that will take place the following day.
Welsh superstar Jones and solo acoustic singer Jack Savoretti were set to perform at the venue this summer.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak and in-line with Government advice, the decision was taken that the concerts – which had been due to take place at the QEII Arena on June 27 and 28, 2020 – could no longer go ahead.
Sir Tom Jones' show has been rearranged for June 27, 2021, and any tickets purchased remain valid and have been transferred to the new date.
Jack Savoretti's scheduled performance was cancelled after organisers said they were unable to reschedule the show.
A statement from Orchard Live said: "Sadly after a lot of hard work we are unable to reschedule the planned Jack Savoretti show that was due to take place on June 27, 2020.
"You will be contacted by the outlet you purchased your tickets from regrading refunds."
Tickets for Olly Murs in Telford go on sale at 9am on October 9.
