Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 4th May 2023

Olly Murs has made his big return to the stage, taking his new album Marry Me out on a tour of the same name – and he’s about to touch down in Manchester. 

The 38-year-old star is going to be taking to the stage at the AO Arena in just a few short hours.

A former X Factor alumni, Olly burst onto the scene with a self-titled debut back in 2010, which went double-platinum, and went on to have four number one singles and four number one albums in near back-to-back succession.

But after four years away from the music industry, he’s back out performing and nearing the end of his Marry Me Tour.

He is promising to have people ‘dancing – if not proposing – in the aisles’ when he hits the AO Arena on Friday 5 May.
