Olly Murs announces Cork gig for summer 2021

Olly Murs attending the Voice UK Series 9 launch held at The Soho Hotel, London.

Olly Murs has announced a 25 date tour for next summer - and it includes a Cork performance. 

The 'Dance with Me Tonight' hitmaker will take to the stage of the Marquee on June 8.

The long running Live at the Marquee concert series was cancelled for 2020 as a result of the pandemic. 

A number of the 2020 shows that were cancelled are to go ahead in 2021, including The Coronas, Sinead O’Connor and Christy Moore.

Murs is also performing a second Irish date at Live At Botanic Gardens in Belfast on June 7. 

A statement revealed that the shows are aiming to "put a smile back on everyone’s face when he will perform his biggest hits, including tracks from his recently certified triple platinum album Never Been Better."

The UK pop star rose to prominence when he came runner up in the sixth series of The X Factor back in 2009.

Since then, he has achieved four number one albums and has collaborated with the likes of Demi Lovato, Snoop Dogg and Flo Rida.

He has also done presenting work and has appeared as a judge on The Voice UK

This year has been a busy one for Murs, who 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. 

During lockdown, Murs devoted more attention to his fitness, working closely with personal trainer Rob Solly, and sharing his fitness routine exclusively with Men’s Health.

He is also working on new music to be shared next year.

Taking to social media this morning to announce the 25 date tour, Murs said:

"I'm getting back to work and going on a 2021 summer tour."

"New music, new year and new vibes," he continued.

Tickets for Olly Murs live in Cork and Belfast go on sale on Friday, October 9 via Ticketmaster.
