Newmarket Racecourses and The Jockey Club Live have revealed that the ‘Troublemaker’ himself, Olly Murs, will be headlining Newmarket Nights on 18th August 2017.
Since Olly shot to fame on ‘X Factor’ in 2009, he has crafted four multi-platinum albums and produced 4 number 1 singles with total record sales exceeding 10 million. His latest studio album ’24 HRS’ was released last month and became his fourth consecutive LP to reach the top spot on the UK charts, becoming the most successful solo artist ever to come from the X Factor. A formidable performer, he has sold out arena tours across the UK and cemented himself as one of the Britain’s very best live acts.
Olly Murs said:
‘I’m really looking forward to playing Newmarket Racecourse next summer, it’ll be one of the first chances I’ll get to play tracks from 24 HRS in the sunshine so will be a special show to share with my fans. I love a day out at the races too so can’t wait to get in the crowd during the day to place a cheeky bet…’
The 2016 season welcomed acts including Little Mix, Tears For Fears, Mark Ronson and the Kaiser Chiefs to the Adnams July Course, collectively playing to over 100,000 fans.
