Brit Award Nominee Olly Murs headlines the final night of Lytham Proms Festival Weekend this Sunday in his only North-West appearance this summer – and Duke’s Diary has a pair of VIP tickets up for grabs .
One of the most successful male singers of the past decade, Olly (pictured right) has enjoyed success since appearing on the X Factor in 2009.
Now a presenter on ITV2’s spin-off The Xtra Factor and having several Top 10 hit singles and albums to his name, he is one of the UK’s biggest male solo artists.
Last year he scored a number one album with his second release, In Case You Didn’t Know. The first two singles taken from the album, Heart Skips a Beat and Dance With Me Tonight also topped the charts.
He is known for being a charismatic showman and performer.
A spokesman or the show’s promoters Cuffe & Taylor said: “We are thrilled to be bringing Olly Murs to Lytham Proms Festival Weekend. We wouldn’t want anyone else to be closing the festival this year. Olly is a star, and with a sell-out tour, a Brit Award nomination and number one album to his name he is sure to thrill the crowds.
“Lytham Proms Festival Weekend has really become a renowned event and one that creates a real buzz in the local area. We regularly get locals asking us who will be performing and we hope we’ve provided something for all tastes and ages this year. We are equally pleased that this will be Olly’s only North-West show this summer.”
Talking about his appearance at Lytham Proms Festival Weekend Olly said: “We’re not going too far down the dancing route – I’ll get a bigger band, build that up. I just want to put on the best show of the year, if I can. I want people to come away feeling it was money well spent.”
