Delighted to be back performing at York Racecourse, Olly Murs, has been announced as the first headline act for the what will be three Music and Racing events in 2017.
Olly will star on Saturday 1 July, a brand new raceday in the Knavesmire Calendar, as he plays after the sporting action. Since Olly shot to fame on ‘X Factor’ in 2009, he has crafted four multi-platinum albums, produced four number One singles, whilst clocking up total record sales exceeding 10 million. His latest album, ’24 HRS’ sees him working with an array of producers and was recorded in both London and L.A. – Olly has never sounded so good.
Olly Murs said:
‘I’m really looking forward to playing York 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…’
