OLLY Murs will perform a massive outdoor concert in Peterborough this summer.

He will take over the Embankment on Sunday June 2, in association with Cambridgeshire radio station Heart.

Since becoming runner-up in 2009’s series of The X Factor, singer-songwriter Murs has achieved great success in the charts, with three number one singles and two number one albums.

His most recent album, Right Place Right Time, 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 hitting the top spot in the UK Singles Chart.

Concert spokesman Dion Clements said: “We’re ecstatic to announce Olly Murs is coming to Peterborough’s Embankment to perform his big outdoor summer show.

“Some of his biggest fans come from this area so we just hope there will be enough tickets to meet demand.”
