Olly Murs first burst onto the music scene as the runner-up of The X Factor in 2009. Building on the momentum of his newfound fame, Olly consequently grabbed the number one spot on the singles chart with his debut single, Please Don't Let Me Go. Dubbed "an all-round entertainer" by the media, his current album, In Case You Didn't Know, has been certified platinum. In addition to his UK tour, Olly is slated to tour with Robbie Williams in Europe this summer.
