Olly Murs to play open-air show at Powderham Castle

Pop star Olly Murs is set to play a huge open-air show at Powderham Castle, near Exeter, this summer.

Since becoming runner-up in 2009’s series of The X-Factor, Olly Murs’ double-platinum-selling debut album, reached number two in the UK Album Chart upon release in 2010, and secured two Top Five places in the UK Singles Chart.

Subsequent hits have come one after another, including the number one singles Heart Skips A Beat and Dance With Me Tonight from Olly’s second album, In Case You Didn’t Know, which hit the nummber one spot in the UK Album Chart and marked a progression of his distinctive sound towards a modern example of old-school, classic soul and rock’n’roll.

Olly’s third and most recent album, Right Place Right Time – released in November last year – became the fastest selling male solo album of 2012 in the UK and went straight to number one in the UK Album Chart, with the lead single Troublemaker – featuring Flo Rida – reaching the number one spot in the UK Singles Chart, meaning Olly held the top spot in both charts at the same time.

Olly Murs hits Powderham Castle on July 7, 2013. Find out more on the Powderham Castle website.
